I Forge Iron

Another Round at Swapmeet Today!

Recommended Posts

The rollers look like the ones for a Harbor Freight Hossfeld type bender.

The flat bars are plated, so if you want to forge them you will want to remove the plating first.

The bearings have multiple uses. I have buckets of them from places I have worked. Many times they were tossed because the machinery was being completely rebuilt, and it didn't matter if they were not that old. I just got a couple of high precision angular contact bearings that are 2 months old, and run $300-and they are only 1.340" in diameter. I am thinking for a wind vane. 

You are getting quite the pile of stuff, now you need to start making something.

Tomorrow Im off...I plan to make heads and tails of it all.....

If I'm not fighting with the "GF" over some issues..:)

Seems how it all started!

The rollers came from the same Machinist Guy that sells at the swap meet...HE HAS SO MUCH STUFF! So I make it a point to swing by and buy. He throws me a piece here and there...nice guy..

Wind Vane! Didn't even consider that! hmmm
