  1. I have recently started making Damascus billets and in some of my research ive heard "you have to have compatible metals". I don't really understand what makes two different steels compatible for forge welding. Mainly I'd like to know what I can use out of my scrap pile (since im a farmer with 4 generations worth of scrap). I have tried an old duck foot shovel, ( basically a hoe for plowing ground ) with a stainless saw blade. These haven't really been working and I'm not sure if it's my ability to forge weld or if it's the materials. Thanks.
  2. Early this summer my wife started a project of organizing all my scrap metal. This was accomplished for 2 reasons. First to clean up all the piles of metal around the property and second to minimize buying material that we already had. It also had a third unexpected accomplishment and that is for me to complete and finish more projects. Here are a few pictures and a video of the yard. You can see the video here.
  3. We have (had) an old drilling rig that was way beyond restoration. It had some good wheels and things which we removed with the crane. What was left was a tangle of old timbers and wrought iron bolts and rods. We dumped the lot on the burn heap. When it cools, I will gather up all the bolts and whatever else is salvageable from the ash. Lots of chain and forge welded eye-links and stuff. I have never had much success forging wrought but the woodgrain effect might make for an interesting coffee table or something. Anyway, here's a before and after pic.
  4. Ok, so this one is inspired from Frosty from the last elephant I made. Can't say it's exactly what he was talking about but with his story and ideas it inspired this. ( new attempt at pictures, still need a good diffused light source and a better/ bigger back drop. ) yes I have an ironing board and iron. No, I haven't used it yet. might turn it into art muahahaha. So quality of pictures aside.... Here is a circus elephant riding a unicycle while holding an umbrella with a mouse along for the ride.
  5. Assassin bug. Head is on a spring and moves have a little cleanup to do but I really wanted to post it.
  6. Here is the almost finished spider. I'm thinking of making a web behind it and there are a few small tweaks I want to do then it will get sealed and be done. I like trying to add forged elements to sculptures, this one is bolts as legs, spinnerets ( abdomen legs) pedipalp (mouth legs) , and chelicerae (fangs). Yes I looked that up lol. Hope it's creepy enough for the title. At the moment it's about 17#. I was initially concerned it would be back heavy but is balanced really well. 16" long by 13 1/2" wide.
  7. Atlanta here, I am in the process of building my forge and i am ordering steel for the piping for it online; and that same website is the same place im getting my starter steel, Seeing how expensive this can be, I want to know if there are any local welding shops in the North Atlanta/Alpharetta area where i can purchase scrap metals and such, Zip code is 30022. Some one has got to be around me
