  1. Takes a good man to stand up like that. JB Weld has saved my bacon more than once. I've been known to replace holes in things like that housing with it. Get either the inside or outside of that gap bridged by cutting up a pop/beer can and using it as a backing. Then lather the JB Weld in and wait for it to set up. Then get out your grinder and grind out what doesn't look like blower housing. You'll have to get the housing sparkling clean before you start. Mix up a quart of ATF and a quart of Coleman camp stove fuel 50/50 and then add a pint of SeaFoam. Put that housing in a bucket with that mixture and leave it for a week or so. It'll come clean. Then you can make it new.
  2. It's lookin' good, Jennifer. Projects like that go slow when you're working by yourself. I know........been there done that, pretty much all my life.
  3. That's a great suggestion, Frosty. I wouldn't have thought of that. (of course, I'm not a great thinker!)
  4. Very interesting. You may think you have adequate ventilation, but it sure doesn't sound like it. Just my opinion.
  5. To whom are you directing that bit-o-wit, Thomas? I can't keep up with you...........much too fast for my feeble ol brain.
  6. I try not to use Bezo's subversive website any time I can keep from it.
  7. I've been considering building one of the "washtub" forges myself. But I find your comment about the gas forge scaring the dickens out of you interesting. What about the gas forge scared you? Good suggestions Glenn. I'll keep that in mind if I ever get around to making one of those solid fuel forges myself.
  8. Some of dese here fellers know more words than a cat has hairs on it's body. Me, well........... my vocabulary is numbered more like a cat's whiskers. So Webster is my friend.
  9. Heck all this time I thought you were just one of those dumb 'ol blacksmiths in bib overalls. Didn't realize you were a plumb intellectual type!
  10. Wow, are we a bit edgy today? You might want to listen to Thomas. He's most likely forgotten more about blacksmithing tools and equipment than you'll ever know. His advice comes with a WHOLE of of experience and is freely given when asked for.
