  1. So I made my first pair of tongs so I don't have to use my Chanel-locks anymore. Used half inch rebar, not perfect but I think they will work for what I'm doing
  2. I think it is 4340 steel, or 300m aalloy. Not sure what all that means
  3. so yesterday i had the idea of making a connecting rode from a Subaru into a billet that i can work into something later but could not get the end that attaches to the crankshaft to fuse to itself ( have to weld it to itself due to is being in the shape of a C). i did not use flux, mainly because i do not know what to use for flux. any ideas on how i can do it without flux? is it even possible?
  4. Thanks, I'll definitely look into making a horn for it
  5. Yeah not a problem for me since my forge is outside
  6. So I posted a while back asking about anvils and got a lot of helpful feed back and this is what I ended up being able to make. It is two 14" chunks of trolley track welded to itself to give more it more meat. I know it is not ideal but it worked OK once I got it held down
  7. I used pine bark and it seemed to work nicely, it got plenty hot to work a railroad spike and didn't just turn to ash super fast. What do you guys think about it?
  8. FYI there is an anvil coming up at an auction of a lumber mill in Kamiah, ID mid October.  They haven't posted a photo yet but it's mentioned on page 5 of the items. They tend to add photos later so a photo might show up in a week or two.  The last one of these I saw at auction of a lumber mill (lewiston) went for what I thought was quite high pricing--but it was a fairly big anvil and those bigger sizes make people drool a bit.

    Might be a bit far for you but just wanted to point it out so you had the option to decide for yourself.
