  1. Ok. So got a job that will involve heating a 48x48 “ piece of 16 gauge sheet metal up. Need to build a temporary type forge for this. my first thought is to build a large square top and mount a bunch of burners on it and just stack brick for sides and bottom. Only going to be used 1-2 (hopefully more) times. don’t want to over complicate it. Only need to get the sheet metal hot enough to inflate it. any thoughts on a burner count? im thinking 1 every square foot- 25 or so??
  2. Thanks guys. Base Alone for sculpture at road is 400# hopefully that keeps thieves at bay. yes. Tail is forged pipe. The head and thorax are inflated metal so it really doesn’t weigh that much.
  3. Started on some outside decorations for the shop. Just got around to posting. Also added some at end of road so people had a way to find shop easier
  4. Added dragonfly to shop flowers. Picture of buddy for scale.
  5. I picked up a single port lever style Manzel oiler at quadstate, has anyone converted a lever style to a pulley style? thanks
  6. another question, pulled inspection plates off of side and am finding a very fine brass-like dust mixed in with oil....nothing big or even close to big, story with this hammer is that it was sent out and completely rebuilt about 20 years ago and then just moth balled until now. i cycled oil in it for about an hour with just a drill motor running the oiler before firing it up for the first time.... the thing runs perfect so im puzzled.....
  7. dont worry about anything other than the slacktub freezing, I'm not far from Trenton and leave my shop unheated. just heat up the metal and beat it.... youll be fine
  8. Thanks. Final details. Rearranging vise and air hammer. Built door hardware wife finished door and added landing dragon to peak.
  9. Does anyone know the actual recommended rotation for a Nazel 2b? Clockwise when addressing the hammer from the front? I don’t think it would matter. But ??? It appears to run fine in either I have chosen clockwise when addressing the hammer thanks
