  1. Wagon wheel clock.

    I like it.
  2. could use some anvil advice

    Last time I had to drop our heavy work Truck off to be worked on. I asked them if they had any broken semi axles. They let me dumpster dive for free and I walked away with 5 axles 4 with the bolt plates still on and I belive it's a main shafts out of a semi transmission. If you think outside of the box you can always find something suitable to be an anvil.

    My family and I are also glad they didn't give up on me.
  4. A collection of improvised anvils

    It actually is one of my many nicknames from an mma gym I used to teach at. I was teaching some fighters and I fell over dead of a heart attack. They did cpr for 20 min and shocked me 8 times with the paddles before I came back.
  5. A collection of improvised anvils

    I use a technique that at work we call walking. I am used to moving heavy headstones but if you only lift one side and rotate it on end you can walk it to wherever you want. The problem is lifting the whole thing at once lol.
  6. Tall pub table, heavy wood and steel

    Looks good. Now I want to make one :-)
  7. A collection of improvised anvils

    Here is my collection of improvised anvils. The fork lift tine anvil is made out of 2 forks that where 8 inches wide and 2 inches thick. My inspiration was the old mideval German hornless anvils mixed with Brian Brazeal. I wanted an anvil I could use in multiple ways, and I hadn't seen one made exactly like this. It weighs somewhere between 435 -450 lbs. It's final dimensions are the face is 8 inches wide, 2 inches thick, and 26 inches long, it is 12 inches tall. The Brian Brazeal style riser/ horn is 4 inches high. It is completely reversible. Total cost was $50 for the used tines and $25 for cutting wheels, flap wheels, and welding rod. Total $75. The post anvil is 20.5 inches high and 5 inches in diameter. I was told that it was the ram off an oil drilling rig and that it was made of some Chinese super steel that I can't remember what it was, it's weight is about 120 lbs. The rail road track is 19.5 inches long and is supported by a fish plate cut in half and bolted back on to help keep the middle Web vibrations down. I got the inspiration for this one from Moose Forge, it's weight is 136 lbs. I bought the post anvil and track from a blacksmith who was moving. The cost for these two where $62. I put my 125 lb soderfors in front of them for size reference.

    I really dig your knives stormcrow. This one looks good like always.
  10. Hand steel Hawk

    Looks good
  11. Smaller knives, tantos and rooster spurs

    They look good. I liked how you put the double strand turks head knot as the guard when you use para cord handle wrap. I also like the rougher forged look, instead of a nice high polish finish.
  12. Hello from SLC, Utah

    I hear ya DavidF on the anvils on ksl. I was lucky and asked around folks I knew in Wyoming and walked away with one. I can't afford what's on ksl either lol. Send me a pm I might have something to help you out. Do you have any left over kaowool or anything for forge building?
