Another newbie to this site and to blacksmithing and bladesmithing I'm from Albury New South Wales Australia Have been trolling over tons of good info on here and in the planning stages for a forge and burner. I really like the NARB but trying to find the equialent materail in Australia is xxxx hard.Even more living in a rural region nearly everything has a shipping cost which nearly cost more than the product . But nearly found all the products that should work hopefully hahaha.

All are Australian manufactured machines. I restore them by: Completely dismantling Stripping paint and grease from parts Regrinding damaged sliding surfaces zinc priming all parts to be painted. refinishing parts assembling and adjusting press I am looking at techniques of restoring well-worn presses by the addition of silicone bronze to replace metal that has been lost through wear
