  1. It followed me home

    They are made to take a bit of abuse. Who knows, hand onto it as a set until you find the right use.

    After a frustrating time with a small pendant at my first time forging again in over a week I decided to revamp my scrolling pliers made from old needle nose pliers. They worked, now they will work better getting into tighter spots and being more rounded.

    Nugg3t, Those are /were some awesome jeeps. Great pictures too. Lots of fun! I'm sure you'll eventually get another. I've had my daily driver in places I probably shouldn't have (including in an old mine in the hills of WV.) but it's been great fun. Once I get the transmission redone in Fubar it will be getting hauled up to my friends place for some fun in the mountains. Gatta remember a tool kit.

    Depends on if you can A. find what make it is or what it's for, or B. get good measurements and try to figure the style of end connectors to try to sell it. C. who cares, might be more effort then it's worth, stick it in the resource pile, it's free steel and might be useful as one tube fits the other snug and could make a good adjustable "something".

    Awe man... Looks like it was going to be a nice one. Sorry. I've been there, learned that, and could even possibly do it again.
  6. Treadle hammer mechanics?

    Sounds pretty neat Thomas. Know of any pictures of it floating on the web? This it? It's the only one I really saw on a quick search.

    Nice first item Jimmy. Practice your tapering so you can put a nice scroll finial on the handle end. Hans, any way to smuggle some of those brats through the mail to me?

    The orange ( looks pink with the old paint faded) one is my 66 cj5 with the dauntless v6 225 engine. It needs the wiring finished, some brake work and other suspension checkup to get roadworthy. It has some 02 cavalier seats in it to replace whatever horrible monstrosity of seats the previous owner had in it. The drivers side rear wheelhouse is notched to allow the seat to move back further so I can fit in it. lol. The other one is Fubar. It is a hodgepodge of different year parts. I bought it pretty much as is only having changed the wheels. It also has the dauntless v6. I was told my the seller that a local lady used to mud/ dirt race it in the 80's. It's only a field beater and fun as all get out. The engine blew up after the first day I got it running. Found a replacement and it runs better then ever. Right now it needs a transmission rebuild. It's one of those weld it up as it breaks kinda jeeps. Yeah, that's a beer keg gas tank.

    Welcome aboard Sandrion. I guess now you need something to heat the metal and something to hit it with. Next question to ask yourself is what kind of fuel is available and what you plan to make determines the size of the forge you will need.
  10. Newbie here just saying hello

    Coal and charcoal are different animals as far as air supply and what depth of fuel work better. The nice thing about using clay is that it's not that hard to rebuild to suit what fuel you use. You can always try the coal in the charcoal setup and see how it works. Just know you'll need more air supplied for coal vs. charcoal. You can use just the clay, or you could mix in some sand. There are some different mixes you can make that have been covered before if you do a little searching. Try searching on your main search engine with iforgeiron after the subject. There are many good posts worth reading. There are many things that will work so don't get hung up on which one is best just try out what seems like it will work out for you.

    John if you can figure out what it fits those pto drive shafts can be a little pricy. And you got both halves. Nice find.
