I Forge Iron

What project are you working on????

Recommended Posts

As some know I am working on my blower and post drill ... Also fired up the forge to season some steak turners that my wife had made for her at the conference.... Took apart some weight lifting racks a guy was throwing away used 2x2 angle that he was throwing away so thats apart now..... I don't know what he had in mind when he built it but it was solid......

Anyone else working on any projects???

This is my 4" forging vice. I made that stand for it some time ago. It looks pretty solid but it actually flexes quite badly when bending or pulling metal in the vice.


I recently got a nice 6" vice on ebay, so thought now was the ideal time to upgrade the stand as well.

I have spent the day sorting through my scrap pile and think I have found everything I need to make a proper, solid stand.

Welding it all together will keep me busy for an hour or two.

Currently I've been doing these little roses.
need to make a die to do the veins in one shot, rather than with a chisel.
Wife and daughter love them, and want me to do a while screen door full.

one question: when you did the rose ( whith is wery nice ) did you do it frome one picepart?

I have been working on leaf keyfobs, kitchen utinsels, tongs and such for practice. In true "I been meaning to do that" fashion, since we got our first good snow I am sidelined making a snowblade for the dixie chopper.

A fella I work with just gave me 2 buckets of RR spikes. When I get the blade done it,s my intention to experiment with those.

When using "www.yourimg.com" as a place to store your photos on the internet:

Use the 4th set of coding down called "Your Image in BBCode" and just copy and paste it directly into the forum and the image will show up with no additional coding needed.

If you wish to use the "img" button on the forum to place your photo into the text, click on "img"- use the last line of code provided by "www.yourimg.com" - and click "img" a second time to close the code.

All this can be done manually using before and after the URL for the image.

No matter how it is done, using the preview button at the bottom of the input page where you make your post, will show your post exactly as it will be seen on the forum.

If you have problems, PM or an email to Glenn or the site admin will get their attention and they can usually fix things.
