I Forge Iron

Big Slick

Recommended Posts

Beat out a Slick for Dad today. makes a pretty good trade for a conveyor for moving dirt out of the basement to be. ***** of a lot of beating to get the socket spread enough to roll it up. Can't wait til the ceramic blanket comes in and I can get another forge set up and the old one relined. One for small stuff and another for larger bits.

And an interesting piece of scrap from the casualty at work. Stub shaft that holds the the track frame on the 527 Skid Cat broke. Was thinking maybe a base for my post vise, but not quite heavy enough. Might make a nice blade anvil if the face has two parrallel sides. Weighs 108lb when complete by the shipping slip for the new one.

Nice slick. Is it for log construction or other?

The shaft would make a decent anvil, mounting it level is just a matter of doing it so it comes out level. Do you have welding skills? A bucket or wash tub of concrete makes a fine expedient anvil stand.

Frosty the Lucky.

Think Dad wanted it for post and beam type stuff. Was thinking the the larger piece of the stub shaft could sit on a block with a few spikes throught the bolt holes to hold it down. then its portable. The shorter piece if used just take the chainsaw and plunge cut a square hole into the end of a block, of sized right should fit plenty snug, and if not a few wedges might just work to lock it in place. Though it could be welded to the crank pulley I haven't pulled out of the scrap bin yet. It's off a Cat engine from a logging truck that burnt up (lot's of excitement that day!)
