Hello, I'm about to start to dress my forklift tine anvil. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestion on where I should grind in my different radii. I am looking to make some knives, some tongs and whatever other things I might want to make. I seen a square post anvil where he had a radii on each side with the following radii, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and just broke the edge on one side of his square post anvil, however, mine is rectangle shaped. I don't know where to stand in relationship to the anvil to use my anvil in the most effective way. If this was your anvil, what sides would you put the above radii for best use of the surface? Looking at my anvil, what side would you put the 1/2 radii, the 1/4 radii?, etc... Thanks.
Hello, Just starting out in blacksmithing. Putting things together. Got a hold a a couple forklift tines, and a section of .5 wall steel pipe. Trying to figure out how to hold the tine in the upright position inside the pipe section. I am in the process of cutting the tine so I am left with a 2"x5"x25" section to use as a post anvils for knife making. The pipe section is 5.75id x 18" tall, no base yet. Any suggestion on how to go about mounting this anvil for use? Weld steel plate to bottom of pipe? attach to concrete floor? or use something in-between floor and anvil base, like wood? Not sure how high to make the top of the post anvil? I would like to insert the forklift tine into the steel pipe, fill pipe with something to hold the tine in the upright position. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks. Jeff Located in Florida.
It's been quite a while I know, G'day all who recognise this poster. I have an urgent need to own one of these mulch forks but do not have the means or the justification in buying one. I thought perhaps someone might have a clue on the process of forging the fork from a single piece as the sturdy ones seem to be.
