  1. Hey everyone, since this is my first post let me introduce myself. My name is Daniel and I live in the Willamette valley in Oregon (in case anyone needs a shop hand). I made this account when I was still a complete novice and trying to make tongs out of railroad spikes and using channel locks as my main tongs. Also when I was collecting cast iron window weights thinking that I was going to forge them into something. lol anyway let me get into the meat and potatoes of this post... I've been searching all over the web looking for different designs of treadle hammers because I want to buil
  2. Hi. I've recently installed my Alldays & Onion 1cwt, I'm having trouble with the treadle, it's a bit stiff going down but can still forge with it, it's when it goes to return it doesn't want to without me aiding it. it has been sitting around for over a year and I've left the hammer running for over an hr to warm it up. Just wondering if it's a common thing or do I have to take it apart to fix. thanks Tom.
  3. I’d like to hear a little discussion about the merits of both of these hammers. The swing-arm type I’m referring to is the one with the adjustable height head. I’m going to build one sometime in the future so I have been pondering on this a bit lately but would like to hear from any one who has used either or both. Most of the builds I remember in the last few years have been for the inline type with the explanation that you do not have to make any adjustment to the hammer to when you switch out tooling. However I have talked to two professionals who said the very much prefer the swing-arm typ
  4. This was in a bucket of dies that came with a recently purchased treadle hammer. Any ideas of what it might be used for? (I've just propped it in the hardie hole.)
  5. I’m interested in knowing the most efficient method of upsetting the end of ¾ and 1” square bars. The process of forming a 50% larger bulged end for table legs up to 45” long. I need a more productive way to accomplish this than, dropping a hot bar on end on a heavy plate on the floor, or hand hammering it while supported through a square hole in a big swage block. I’ve been thinking about making a 50-75 lb treadle or pneumatic hammer, with the front of the anvil open and shaped like a u. Make the anvil from three very heavy bars or plates welded together. I could then place a removable die
