    Pouring and then forging

    Thank you, I should clarify when I’m talking about forging, I mean hot forging! Like at a red heat.

    Pouring and then forging

    Hello everyone, long time no see. i have tried to melt down old copper pipes, make ingots, and then forge them, with no success. Is copper always forgable (meaning the problem could come from impurities such as the solder on the pipes) or do you have to treat or stir it the way you would with iron? Maybe anneal it lots? Help appreciated! Ethan

    Touchmark/Makers Mark stamps?

    I recently got two new stamps made, a 1" and a 3/8" I'm really happy with them. I feel its a good stamp of approval!
  6. As some of you know, I purchased a 1 CWT Alldays and onions power hammer last year maybe around this time. I've been extremely pleased with this hammer, however I've had a ton of problems with my hammer, most are caused by my own ignorance. for example, I had put way too thick of oil in it when I first got it, and it completely crippled the hammer. for now I'm going to post some pictures and videos of the hammer for walls enjoyment and eye candy. when I have time throughout the next upcoming weeks, ill post specific photos of problems, and how I solved them. I hope I can give back and provide some value for someone out there. I received a huge outreach from people with these hammers when I had problems, such as Owen Bush, Allen Evans, Alec Steele and many more. Kevin Willey seems to be the beaudey man, Mark Krause seems to be the pneumatic man, and I want to see if I can be the Alldays Man;) I look forward to posting about my screw ups!here is a youtube video I made detailing my hammer and here is a video using the hammer to forge a Damascus machete

    Alldays hammer base

    Thank you very much. I will be sending you an email. I would probably mount the base for it on a pad or something like you said, but the trouble in my situation Is that my new shop space is dirt. So i would have to pour a pad anyway.

    Stampede commission

    Thank you all. Yes I used 15n20, and 1084. Question for y'all: is there a real difference, or enough that they have to make like fit example, 1080,84, and 85. Like is there really enough differents in that .01% carbon difference?

    Stampede commission

    the billets I forged were about 2 pounds, and when I go done, I could forge 4 or 5 knives out of them, it took many heats tho.

    Stampede commission

    Thank you guys for the kinda words as always. They are in commission as mr.powers said, but I do intend to do another run of them because they seem to be popular in the eyes of Facebookers;) it was a bit big job for the little giant to weld all those big billets of steel so I'm sitting on my hands for a bit until I get shipping Inline for the new hammer.
