  1. Hi! It’s been awhile since I’ve been on here. I got three from a random surplus store
  2. Been super busy the last few months with non shop related stuff. But I have been working on some blades here and there. Hope everyone is doing well!
  3. I am so sorry Mike! I totally got caught up in my bubble. I will do it in the morning. But from what I can recall, I drilled the intake holes 4” from the flame end of the mix tube then made the cut for the jet to be a little past the start of the intake which would give room for tuning. Since most of the assembly is threaded together, tuning the distance of the jet is as easy as turning the coupling the hose barb is threaded into or the hose barb itself or both effectively adjusting the distance on such a small system. However they may be slight differences. Again, my apologies for not responding sooner
  4. Been making a bunch of grafting knives for the cactus group I’m a part of.
  5. It’s been awhile since I’ve been on here. Pretty busy with all sorts. Anyone know what these are? I found them in a thrift . They had hundreds. Thinking of using it for an irrigation part.
  6. Grafting knives heat treated and ready to be handled. Going to use this staghorn skeleton for handles on the next projects. The wide knives are for “slab grafting” cacti, made from 3” wide bandsaw blades. Unrolled they are over 20’ long. 2 each. I did the break test and they are definitely hardenable!
  7. Nice catch, yes very important. I will measure tomorrow.
  8. Thanks. It is from a fancy toilet paper holder. The cacti growing group has requested a few grafting blades.
  9. Any one know if the body of this saw are hardenable? Don’t want to cut into unless I can use it. The working bit looks welded on, so that for sure is hard. But I’m more interested in the body.
  10. I’ve been growing and grafting cacti so I made a grafting blade.
  11. Great Idea. Funny, bookmarks are what I have been making lately
  12. Stoked. Christmas present. Hope y’all are good out there
  13. Another book mark. Made from 12” garden spikes/nails. Brass pins for inserts and 1/4” copper refridge tube for the eyelet
  14. Thanks for the input Mike, that is encouraging. I would be a happy camper if I could weld with such small equipment. As for the part I think it is a fitting of a shower/bath hose connection. I used it for another build awhile back and it worked but was not a very practical component as it did not allow for an easy connect at the end of the mix tube.
  15. https://youtu.be/uPm8ZLQ26xo here is slow motion of two of burner in a small forge. The mini keg is a gallonish the forge chamber is like half a gal. And gets very hot. It may just need a better forge design to get to welding. Maybe just a door. But it has been my main forge for most things and goes quite the distance. I have a large 2 burner 3/4” forge for the anything larger. EDM tubes are .015” ID you can find them on the “bay” under drawn brass tubes. Be sure to put the specified ID in the search Also, the 1/4” pipe nipple is 5”. I made a mistake in an earlier post about this burners tube being longer than that. The correct length is 5”. Well I thought it was slow mo
