    Would be my guess if you were doing what always works well. Not impossible for a piece of steel to have a flaw in it.

    Wow. It looks very elegant. The whole thing looks difficult to me.
  3. Or there is always the junky old axe or splitting maul heads found at fleamarkets junk stores or the like. They can be mounted in a stump or vise for an expedient hot cut. Best to make it removable and don't use a Good axe or splitting maul that you plan to use for the " intended" purpose. Punches and chisels are good first tools to make. There are other threads here on beginner projects so I won't drift off into all that.

    Unless it's something that takes hours, doing the first step before the second newer step only refines the first step.

    Looking good Pr3ssure. It could help to upset the stock where it will be folded and welded and deffinately draw out your first point before the fold and weld to draw out the welded point. I find upsetting a interesting and fun technique, but then again, I'm weird haha.
  9. Hard to really tell from a photo. It "looks" to me to be anthracite. I say this because of the sheen of it. The bituminous I have dealt with generally has less sheen and usually has a darker color to it where anthracite I have dealt with looks more like what is pictured. Any chance of getting a small batch to try, or atleast seeing it in person to see how it breaks up?

    Mount for a post vise?

    I have one I might be able to get pictures of the tenon mount if I find time to dig it out and take it apart. I had posted on it but never got a separate picture of the tenon mount itself in the thread. To see that one search " H*LOSE Vise iforgeiron"

    Les Paul Guitar

    Thanks. It's 10.4lbs according to my bathroom scale. I've seen some pretty neat homemade playable guitars as well.

    Les Paul Guitar

    "Less Paul" guitar Scrap sculpture of a Les Paul. 45" tall, 14 3/4" wide, 2 1/2" deep. Flame "colored" then clearcoated with high temp exhaust paint. Has 3 nuts welded on to be screw mounts if it was to be mounted to a wall.

    DIY swage block

    Really interesting Ted. I'm excited to see how it holds up for you.

    Les Paul Guitar

    Thanks Dave, 58er. I almost loaded it up with bits and pieces, which would have beed fun to look at and identify but it wasnt working for This one. Perhaps another but this one I felt simpler was better. It does have some little less noticable bits. There is a "cable jack" and "strap pegs"

    Great work. That is a beautiful and inspirational piece. Love the cut and "peeled" pipe for the holders, idea. Don't know why the first thought in my mind about the wrapping was of a mummified cat. Could more easily been of a bowling pin.

    Anvil Identity?

    Yes but I wouldn't worry about it and forge around it. A repair would be costly. The only harm that could come from it is if the faceplate is delaminating in the area. Read up on the ring and rebound tests and do them to check it out. No worries tho as like i said there is Plenty of good usable space on that anvil.

    Anvil Identity?

    That chip in the faceplate looks like it could be a trouble area but just work around it. There is plenty of good usable anvil there at a great price too. Like Thomas said, wire wheel and use it. After a little cleanup with the wire wheel you might find some stampings. A better stand might be in order. Great buy!

    14” Crown Bowie

    Very nice!

    Help identifying

    Looks like a seam. I'd be very cautious and really check it out. Could be a cast iron ASO. Can you get a picture of the face or other pictures? Also can you check it out in person? Deffinately to a ring and rebound test.

    Marc, its modeled after a Les Paul which dont have whammy bars. Tho, I could put one on, I'm going to keep it simpler. I was thinking the next one will be more "metal" Horse, thanks. Give it a try.
