I'm thinking about converting my Central Machinery (harbor freight) 6X48 belt sander into a 2X72 grinder. I think the motor is on its last leg because it's bogging down much faster than I remember, and I know there's a lot of work involved, but I don't have much money for the darn thing because I fund my shop through part time shop sales. I don't exactly know where to start on this project, but I figure y'all are the best group of people to ask. Seems like a bunch of you have done home-built 2X72 jobs, and I really think the conversion would increase my productivity and allow me to work to
Okay so I'm going to start assembling parts to build my starter forge. Just something simple to get me going. The basic design is similar to this one http://www.stormthecastle.com/blacksmithing/how-to-make-an-easy-cheap-blacksmith-forge.htm but with a few modifications. For starters the frame is going to be hotrolled steel struts, like so http://www.lowes.com/pd_69795-37672-11705_4294684420__?productId=3059249&Ntt=metal&pl=1¤tURL=%3FNtt%3Dmetal&facetInfo= 4 angled struts for the corners, and 7 flat struts for the supports. Welded in a shape simila

Then there is the part about making you an immediate blacksmith just by building his style forge. Short version: "Modern Blacksmith" suggests using a propane weed burner and a roll of Kaowool in a coffee can to build a small gas forge. Have any of you ever tried this and/or have insights into
As the title above says, I'm thinking about making a power hammer, for my AG Mech welding class. I don't really know anything about bulding one, but its what I want to do. I really don't know all the technical stuff about it, but would an air hammer be better over a mechanical one? Or vice versa? Whos got good plans to gather info from? It cannot be built off of purchased plans, but the designs can be based off of designs I'll probably have to make CAD diagram of it for my teacher.. Which would be easier to build, helve, mechanical, or air? I'd like to make an air hammer, to use in the sh
