  1. I have collected all the components for my press. Would love any input on ways to assemble and mount before I start that phase. The motor is a 5.5HP 110v. The pump, valves and tank are off an old tractor. The cylinder is 4” bore and is brand new. I’m not positive but my math puts it at a 16 ton press power. I’d love if someone could check me on that.
  2. Started the canabilizing of my old broken tractor. Hydraulic control valve and hydraulic fluid holding tank with filter assembly. Pulling the pump next. Have a 30ton shop press frame I have made an agreement to buy which I will be reinforcing with additional steel. And if I’m lucky then I might be able to use a piston from the tractor as well.
  3. Knocked out a quick little San Mai throwing knife/rope dart ( depends on if it throws like xxxx). 80CrV2 between mild “bread”. Handle was slitted, drifted, thinned over the horn, then knocked parallel. It sucked. Lol.
  4. “Ghost” 80CrV2 with mild San mai. Approx. 7” blade. 10.75” overall.
  5. Made sure this one stayed straight. Right out the oil and under pressure.
  6. Working on this. Blade is double twisted 12 layer pattern weld. 1095/15n20. The guard is wrought. Have a big cube of wrought for a pommel as well. Forging that today. Handle is going to be leather wrapped wood. Thinking with some twine risers(correct term?) underneath. Super stoked. A dagger is one of my bucket list knives. And high up the list to boot. Also the fuller was forged in not ground.
  7. Finished this two handed up. Not perfect but much better then my last one. Hope y’all enjoy.
  8. Neil, I always take info as an opportunity for improvement. Thanks for taking the time to give it.
  9. Finished a pair of offset blade tongs today. My second pair of tongs I’ve made. First rivet, forged down from parent stock. Great learning experience. Super stoked with how they turned out.
  10. Center punch number two from a large Allen key. Changes made from first to reflect group feedback. Note domed striking end. Cold center-punch so shorter length. Tip brought to non-magnetic to an inch down the shank. Quenched in warm canola. Quick grind to reveal clean metal. Shank heated to glowing and temper brought to tip with tip reaching pale fading to dark wheat.
  11. Love this. Learn something new every day. Shame i'm a loose that forge finish though. Love that colour I’m honestly considering just making a second and keeping that one as a fidget. If you put it tip down and run your hand up and down it it spins in a really satisfying way.
  12. Lol. Yes. I need to proof read better. Very much non magnetic. If I could make it nonmetallic I’d win a Nobel prize prolly. Lol. The tip picked up a light straw.
