  1. Is this worth the money

    Thanks Smoggy. I was curious as I had seen that the lower the speed could go the more suitable it was for metal to prevent drill bits burning out. The tolerances isn't to much of an issue as I will be only using it on handmade items. I might keep an eye out for a decent second hand one and if I don't find anything just wait for the next DIY sale they have.
  2. Is this worth the money

    I would love to get a proper industrial one that i know will just keep going but I know i won't have that kind of cash for a while. I was just hoping to upgrade from the handheld setup and the 3 year warranty is a big selling point. I could have a look for a good quality second hand one bu need do more reading on what to check for.
  3. Is this worth the money

    Well I did think that but I then compared it to the Clarke Metalworker and the speeds seemed comparable if not slightly lower. The Clarke's ranger was 620-2620. I would be drilling Metal with it nothing more than 10mm as I would be using it for the mouting holes for hooks and the like anything thicker I would punch the hole through hot. I am just not used to the spec for drills presses and seem to see them vary greatly between the machines. Sorry for not providing greater detail in my original post.
  4. Hi All, I have seen this drill press for sale, and would like some advice on whether it is worth getting. My current setup is I drill free hand or use a hand drill in a drill press but I have run into a few issues with this setup as my only way to kill the drill is to reach over and pull the plug. Thanks, Luke
  5. What Did You do in the Shop Today?

    I did a fair bit done today. I got the finish on my hearts and made an extra hook. I also had a go at some hoof picks and I made my first bottle openers. I was really happy with these as the fullers on the shoes were right round so I had to forge weld them together to get a nice solid tip.
  6. Fly Press Sizes?

    The link below has a huge amount of data on the various flypresses and their specs.

    Perhaps an upgrade in your PPE for a short time

    Nice hearts, and the pumpkins are really cool. Good grief you seem to be having a bad time of it, wish I could come over and lend a hand. Hope you heal quickly. Best wishes, Luke
  9. A collection of improvised anvils

    It's always nice when it happens.
  10. A collection of improvised anvils

    Thank you I thought it would add mass behind the face, so I lined it up so the rail sat right on the cross section. I have got some plans based on threads I have read to make it into more off a swiss army anvil. I thought of putting a fuller on the webbing, a bick and then on the other side make a small turning fork. Then because of the light weight use it as my demo anvil to show people you don't always need a London pattern anvil to get started

    LBS that work looks brilliant. Wish I had half your skill.
  12. A collection of improvised anvils

    This was my first anvil it worked really well to get me started. I still have it and use it sometimes.
  13. What Did You do in the Shop Today?

    So did some actual forging today, I am still trying to get the shape of the horseshoe hearts right. I also made a double hook for all the riding tack just to see. (It is even just thr pic makes it look lopsided)
  14. Killing Anvil noise

    I do have a few on the heel but i think I need to increase the number and then i should be sorted.
