  1. He's keeping the 330 lb. Refflinghaus and some wrought iron pieces and is inclined to keep a big swage block.

    Nicholson 'Western Cut' Mill File

    @jmccustomknives Thank you.
  5. Can someone tell me what "western cut" means when applied to a file? My plans for setting up a building for my attempt to enter the world of blacksmithing took a hit this Spring when 70 mph straight line winds took down the outbuilding I was turning into a shop. When cooler weather arrives I plan to rebuild it but for now I'm pretty much spinning my wheels.I have my post vise mounted so that I can move it around so I thought I might try to practice some draw filing. I bought some of these files but have not yet tried them out. I tried googling the term but didn't have any success. Anyone familiar with the description western cut?
  6. It has the same markings as my 30 kg. "old style" Peddinghaus. In regard to the pitting, I don't think it would be a major problem if you can buy it at a reasonable price. I don't have very much experience though.

    @VaughnT Nice video. They looked to be punching out the nail holes with incredible ease. I've shod plenty of horses but have never seen an ox done, live anyway.

    It looks like anvil D or E, after some modifications, in this link:"+Farrier's+swelled+clip+horn+anvil"&source=bl&ots=fe-lJhKp4j&sig=P4E37khPTYAPIRykQGeu_dCd_xs&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CB8Q6AEwAGoVChMI0-TLgYy2xwIVyhWSCh1TTwDi#v=onepage&q=" Farrier's swelled clip horn anvil"&f=false Nice one.
  12. I meant, of course, "rail" instead of "tie." Is there no option to edit a post after someone else has posted? For some reason I don't see one. Edit: ...on second thought, I could probably "quote" my post and then make corrections.
  13. Man, I'm glad I opened this thread up. It had simply never occurred to me to stand a piece of rail-road tie on end to use as a hot cut. Live and Learn.

    Leaf spring splitting froe

    I saw Andrew Zimmern on an episode of "Bizarre Foods" try to milk a mare in, I believe, Mongolia. It didn't work out so well for him, lol. Back on topic - nice froe.
