  1. No dancing just 9 years worth of tool hoarding.
  2. Three hours of grinding after forging about an hour. My attempt at a tapered lamb splitter to make the next hunting trip go smoother.
  3. If you have the capability/equipment to weld a horn to that block it would seem to me that you also have a chance to build rig for horn work. A double horn stake anvil arrangement out of the 4” round stock could look awesome, and not chance the heat treat on your big rectangle. My thoughts no knowing your set up.
  4. Red oak handle for a “boy’s axe”. 2x6 cut down and shaped by draw knife then sander. B.L.O. Applied with 5 day dry then one coat of light stain followed by two coats of shellac.
  5. There are lots of folks with similar interests in the DFW area. Finding a kind soul to help you weld those plates up might be easier than you think. My thoughts.
  6. MacLeod the sucker rod hammers should not be hard for a guy that makes dragons that look that good. I just had to build three drifts until I got one that worked.
  7. Twisted X driving Mocs. They have composite toe, arch support and they are light. Not to mention most Western wear stores carry them. The leather is thick enough for hot work and the top is low enough to handle summer heat. As far as acreage, they work great on the tractor but not the best if your terrain is rocky.
  8. Do a search of the American Council of Governmental Industrial Hygienist’s. This is the group the researches the chemicals used in manufacturing processes. The resource will help explain the risks. I agree with Frosty - not worth it. Unless it is Zinc, it will be highly dangerous to heat.
  9. Business in front and party in the back is the formula for the mullet. I don’t have any pics of me doing anything smithing related and I refuse to take selfies. I felt that you can see the absence of hair on the sides and the exaggerated length in the back from that vantage. Hope that helps. Let me know if this helps explain the screen name?
  10. Phats - WC Norris or Norris rods. Their spec charts are all over the net last time I looked.
  11. Thank you sir. As an added bonus it’s no problem to cold bend 3’ sections of 5/8” sucker rod in the pritchel hole. I was trying to move it to get some better light and had to upsize my stock.
  12. Another attempt with better lighting. Please let me know if the stand is more visible.
