    sketch for project

    Hey Mike, I can't wait to see the finished piece. Nice design. I am by no means new to metalwork, however I am pretty new to forging. The idea of passing one element through another is just too cool! (especially when they are that close together). Keep us Posted. Mike K.

    casting brass or copper

    I agree with Matts first answer, if your'e going to melt brass get a proper crucible. That being said , why are we hitting a cut-off hardy with ANY hammer? Typically you should only be cutting 3/4 of the way through the piece and break off the last bit. Maybe I'm missing something...

    Little Giant Info

    Brad, I just picked up one of these 50# LGs myself. The angle on mine is aprox. 17deg. from the face of the top slide (further away on the left). I would be happy to take other dimensions or pictures if you need them. I don't have much experience with this machine yet, but it seems to be in pretty good shape. My first project will be to make some dies for it. Good luck with your hammer. Mike
