    Grinder Identification Help!

    Welcome.. I always suggest reading this to get the best out of the forum. READ THIS FIRST It looks to me that grinder was built by the original owner. I noticed a sticker (Vintage Axe Works) have you researched them?

    Getting cement out of a forge

    I would try prying the edges where the cement looks loose, it may pop out in large chunks.

    Forge Hood with Wall Exhauster

    Welcome to IFI... I always suggest reading this to get the best out of the forum. READ THIS FIRST I've also learned that exhausting smoke/fumes into the shop is not a good idea because air currents will spread the smoke even with an exhaust fan. You would be better off to run the super sucker box straight through the wall then run the stack up the outside. Like this. https://www.iforgeiron.com/topic/23197-bp1048-side-draft-chimney/

    What did you do in the shop today?

    I use a small 500 watt thermostat controlled immersion heater in my slack tub, it's set to come on at 35°f off at 40°f. When I'm forging in cold weather I just unplug it.
