Hello, I just picked up this old double bick anvil in an early 19th century farm/sawmill/flourmill. The anvil is stamped with "E.W" and 210 (252 pounds). It weights 246lbs on my scale. The hardy hole location reminds me of a french anvil. The steel face is about 1/2"-5/8" thick from what I can see. It has a sharp and loud ring.It does have a good saddle in the middle. Do you have any information regarding this brand of anvil or its origin? Thanks for your help!
I am still new to blacksmithing but recently I found an old double bit axe I was trying to save. I was nearly complete when I decided to harden the blade before sharpening and etching. I hardened the edge in water because I thought the steel wouldn't harden very well (I know terrible mistake) I ended up cracking the lower part of one of the sides of the axe. I'm still trying to save the axe (The other side is still fine) but I don't know what I can do with this double bit axe when the other side cannot be symmetrical. does anyone have ideas on what to do with the other edge? (Maybe a spike or a smaller head?) I'd really like some advice from people who know what their doing.
Hello everyone, I have an issue with a big door hinge that haven't done before before and i was wondering if someone has the know-how to solve this small issue for me. a couple of days ago i was invited to give an offer for a really big house being renovated in Larnaka, right in the center of town. i am very excited for this project and i hope i can get the job, but the only problem is that there is a hinge which is difficult to make, i was asked to make one of each piece needed at this job, in order to prove to the architect that i will be able to make everything he needs. he has his doughts because i am new in this line of work and a bit young. As seen in the image below this is double hinge where i am not sure how i can make the connection in the middle. can anyone explain how it is made? i just thought that i can make the same circle done for the pin at the first end, where the hinge is joined at the wall and then cut the slice needed in the middle so the secondary hinge can pass through there and insert the pin. is this the proper way to about it? or does anyone have any other ideas? thanks in advance! hope this helps and someone else in the future!
