  1. Ha I used to live in Didcot. so that has to be pretty close
  2. Currently in West Calder. Though I lived in Airdrie for a bit. Like Id said thats a mighty big forge and remember your only going to be working a few inches at a time. If you read the forums here you'll find plans for 55 forges. Ill pm you my phone number.
  3. And as if by magic or nurning ears. Hi L0RDR4G3 as Mr Dwarf has pointed out. I'm located between Glasgow and Edinburgh. If you are close I'm more than willing to pop round and offer limited advice ( I say limited because I dont know everything). If not Im sure a phone call can help if you ever need advice.
  4. im thinking that a decent sied belt grinder and some stock racks are in that pile
  5. Smoggy at least you had someone with a good eye for a bargain with you
  6. one day ill get back down that way.. Have to get you and John out for a beer
  7. theres never auctions or yard sales like that anywhere near me.. 20+ miles to nearest one and thats a rip off
  8. what kind of length and diameter is a door spring when uncoiled?
  9. Hi JK Welcome to the site. Looks like theres a few of us from Scotland now. Not sure of your skill level. or mine to be honest but if I can help . Let me know.
  10. would a plate welded to the end help the hammer face?
  11. sill question but why would you sit in dry ice?
  12. All closes up nicely but theres a wobble when open. Theres a lug or some kind of bar missing from the front to hold it all steady i think Had this dropped off to me today for a new forge hood ( I hope) 22" (560mm) at small end and 34 1/2" (800mm) at the large end.. Its galvanised though so not sure how to tackle this do i cut holes so i can work through like a tunnel thing or do i cut out !/2 of it for a side blast type hood or just mount it above the forge?
  13. Got this today for £20 GBP. should the spacers in the first pic be so loose?
  14. Wish I could find bargains like that.. Up here no one parts with much cheaply.. Congratulations on that deal..
