  1. What Did You do in the Shop Today?

    Chocolate ice cream + root beer = a brown cow
  2. Reminder -- Hydrogen gas is released. Poor ventilation + unclipping a "sparking" electrode = BOOM, which could be deafening. Disconnect the charger first.
  3. Anvil identification/value?

    Question -- in the OP's pics, there is a hardy tool near the horn, does it have a specific name? and function? I can guess a function. Thank you.
  4. Here's the on-line link for the recent PBS' Nova -- Metals. Pretty well done. Enjoy.
  5. My first post vice

    On some post vises, I've seen 2 opposing wedges (rather than a single wedge) to tighten the vise and top mounting bracket.
  6. Vertical forge questions

    I clamped the empty bottle under the weight of a 15 ton crawler loader bucket and used a 4 ft cheater on the wrench and it came right out. .
  7. Integral bolt-down lugs, maybe a "50" cast into the r. front foot -- looks like a Fisher. Good luck.
  8. some weird tools

    Left most -- Cobbler's pliers Bottom middle -- may be a combo -- button shoe hook & boot pull
  9. Recognize these tongs?

    I think it's for horse foot work -- a buttress trimmer.
  10. Reed Mfg 106 swivel. What do I have?

    There is a fixed base being offered from FLA on a popular buy/sell site for $395. I sent you a message. Please check your message "buiton". Thank you.
  11. Muriatic acid

    Basic chemistry -- add acid to water (not vice-versa).
