  1. Oregon blade maker 2x72 grinder

    Same as a 145T. Has a 7/8" output shaft. Just a bit more rigid than a 56T.

    Just bought one. I counted 3 models in their inventory. I bought the most expensive one with the aluminum wheels and bolted assembly for $549. Got it in 3 days and it looks to be of good quality and fit. I am using a 2HP Leeson 56HZ motor, has 7/8" output shaft for increased drive rigidity coupled to a 220 v single phase to 3 phase VFD. Will be able to give a better evaluation after I get through the work week and get it assembled. Oh yeah, the drive pulley was an extra like $40. I will be adding a 10" contact wheel and the small wheel set in the near future. Terry
  3. Tempering in oil

    If you are looking for glycerin, try Craigslist. I have seen several biodiesel makers giving away 55 gallon drums of the stuff. They usually just want it gone. Terry

    These are honorary titles bestowed upon my by my bride, fraught of years of humbugging and disingenuous celebration of the holidays. While not forged of metal, they hang around my neck like the proverbial millstone of the bible. Regards, Terry

    Thanks. Looking forward to attaining curmudgeon status to add to my Grinch and Party-pooper badges.

    Just joined the forum and thought I'd introduce myself. I am just rekindling my interest in metal work . Have made quite a few knives by stock removal, but have always wanted to go the next step and learn to properly forge a blade. Also very interested in forging my own Damascus billets for making blades. Just bought a new Kanka 50 anvil and am currently working on forge designs to meet my needs. On a personal note I am 58 years of age, overweight, and overworked by the Angel in Angel Fire Forge my lovely wife of nearly 30 years. Hope to learn much and maybe be a resource for others. Terry
