  1. Tie rod or sway bar from a truck would be a good choice for log tongs .Pretty obtainable at scrap yards .Meant to take shock loads .
  2. I dont see the x or castellation on the thermal dynamic tips that are called drag tips. they look like this https://www.weldingsuppliesfromioc.com/thermal-dynamics-20-amp-plasma-drag-tip-pkg-5-9-0091 I dont know enough about this to be cofident of what to get.can any owners of thermal dynamic machines help?
  3. I acquired a thermal dynamics SL 40plasma cutter . In looking to buy some replacement tips I find two kinds .Standoff and drag tips . I dont understand the difference. They dont really look any different in the pictures .Can the drag tips really be dragged on the work piece? I have been trying very hard not to contact the work while using the cutter . But if you can get tips that can drag why would you use anything else?
  4. Yves ,this was given to me by a friend who had a small collection of iron work he gathered in his travels . I will ask him if he has more details. I thought it was probably hearth related but the shape is so deliberate and detailed I I thought it would be a very specific purpose . Were all the points and shaping just whimsical /esthetics.? When I say “just“ I mean no practical purpose. When I look up servante its meaning is “ hand maid “ so I assume its a kind of nickname for this tool. Would warming shelf be the english term ?
  5. I am a blacksmith so I must know what it is ! But I do not .Some of you might though . It is from Europe ( Netherlands or Italy) What is it.?
  6. Yep , thought I knew what a scythe anvil looked like . Different techniques obviously.Not entirely sure I understand the toggle .will watch some of the vids .Cheers Thomas
  7. Whats the toggle for ? Are scythe anvils very flat on top ?
  8. Does anyone know what this is ? Some kind of stake tool but appears like it had some very specific purpose with the toggle added.
  9. I think the real challenge is to get " life" into botanical forms . Getting just the right twist or bend can make a lot of difference .
  10. Here are are some I did a while ago, laser cut for me then used in project .Looking at them now I see that I might have put a little more in to forming them to look more alive . Sheet was just under 1/8"
  11. Well! Damascus ! Thats not in my playbook yet. But its a great idea .
  12. Judson, you're right thats a great place to start. I was hoping to see some further developments and refinements perhaps . And some brilliant new ideas !
  13. Does anyone have any nifty tooling ideas they would like to share ? Double posting 5 hrs apart will not get replies faster
