  1. What Did You do in the Shop Today?

    I have to say that really made me laugh. But it is apparently frowned on by the movement.
  2. What Did You do in the Shop Today?

    I made two of these little camp tripods for the scouts to do their waterboiling challenge. They are 50cm tall made out of some 10mm rebar i had.

    JustAnotherViking - well I will just have to suffer for my art Gerald Boggs - That looks really cool I like the handle, what steel did you use?

    With the corkscrew I did I used the technique Mark Asprey demonstrated however I made it a lot shorter, for the balance of the whole piece I thought if it was to long it would feel weird when using the other end. It still seems to grip in the cork nice and solidly I will have to try it out a few more times to see if it holds up.

    ausfire - I used mild for the one i did and it seems to be working fine so far.

    Arkham - those look great. This was my attempt at a double ended bottle opener, and my first go at a corkscrew.

    I made another bottle opener today and did my first corkscrew took a few goes to get it right but looks like it works. I also made a drift out of 25mm.

    Thanks Stitch I was pretty happy with it for my first one.

    I made this bottle opener today, also managed to recover a leaf i was making the other day which was good. I also made another horseshoe heart that i am happy with.

    This is my first punched and drifted bottle opener and has been tested and works perfectly. The starting stock was 30mm x 5mm, i chose to do the handle as a split flat bar twist i saw on blackbear forges youtube channel.

    @Gergely those picture frames are beautiful, and such an elegant design. @Ranchmanben those tongs look brilliant.

    I saw a really nice one on the Blackbear forge youtube channel, it was a split flat bar twist that looked really eye catching. He just split the bar and gave it a standard full twist, then just did a quarter turn back to open it up a bit. Cheers, Luke

    Had a bit of a rough one today. Hadn't been in the forge for a few weeks. Made a hook that i was happy with just to check my rhythm, then had a go at a few more leaf key fobs but just kept losing them to cracks which was irritating but can only get better tomorrow. Also made a start on a bottle opener.
  14. New Workshop (Finally)

    I did look at the hofi style, but the walls have not got the structual integrity to handle the hole being drilled through. Also my shed is right up against that wall with only a 6"gap. And i cant go out of either side as the left is right on the border of the property so would be in the neighbours garden and most of the right side is the house. The reason i was initially going out the top right is there it is a wooden board that raises that side of the roof to create the slope. And i was trying to avoid the roof as they are the old asbestos sheets. But i think with the legal requirements and if i put a big pipe in the initial location it will be right in front of the kitchen window which would not go down well. That was why i was going to use the exhaust vent. Cheers, Luke
  15. New Workshop (Finally)

    Ok so after some more research on the laws it has to be at least 5 foot (1.5m) above the highest point of the roof so it looks like I have no choice but to go straight through the roof. So think I will just go with the two options below and make my own cowl to go on top out of some sheet metal I have. I will just have to damp the roof and wear my face mask when I drill through and hopefully it will go well. Cheers, Luke
