  1. This weekend I made a dinner triangle bell. I'm learning how to make the railroad track more versatile to make curves. Check out the video here.
  2. So, finally breaking up with anthacite and going to bitumous. Wanted to try the new stuff, and make something that would be hard to mess up. After I finished messing that up, I made this. It's just an old triangle, it goes jingle jangle, all along the banks of the Royal Canal.......
  3. Well, it was. Finally gave in and stopped busting up cheap anthracite heating coal. Drove just left of the middle of nowhere, paid twice as much for bitumous, drove it home and fired it up. I think I'm in love. Very different animal. I hadn't played with it in yrs, and forgot how it clumps together. My normal fan setting was way, way too much air, and after I turned it down, I used less than half as much coal to get the same amount of work done. Much cooler fire, but it gave me way more control, and I could get it going strong just by moving the coke around, didn't really have to change the air speed. The only real down side was that my tuyere screen melted. I've been using a piece of stainless steel sawblade cut to shape and drilled with a bunch of 1/4" holes for over two years. I guess the lower air speeds allowed it to heat up more. Maybe I'll just put some rod through the pipe. Hmmmm. Anyway, I thought while I got used to the new stuff, I'd try to make something that would be hard to mess up. So, when I finished messing that up, I made this. Sorta Dubliners/Dropkick Murphys' St. Patricks Day theme. It's just an old triangle, goes jingle jangle, all along the banks of the Royal Canal. :) :) http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/36992-bitumous-triangle/
  4. Any musical triangle experts in here? Last night at my blacksmithing class I made one largely based on the design in Lorelei Sims book. It looks nice but the way she shows it hanging it doesn't ring at all and with it hung properly it rings but not beautifully. I did not have 1/2" round so I used 3/8" round instead which looks fine but may have been part of the problem. The class instructors had different ideas about the exact proportions that each side needed to be and there was even talk of "super quenching" to try and improve the sound but they didn't have a lot of specifics other than "we know there is a correct way to do this, we're just not sure what it is". I'm reasonably happy with what I made for a first attempt but if I make another I'd like to improve so does anyone have any words of wisdom or links to helpful advice on triangle making? I tried a search but shockingly "triangle" is far too broad a search term to bring up many results about what I am looking to make. Any help is appreciated. Best, -Ryan
