    Re: Blacksmithing tools

    That's a very slick idea!

    I'll have to keep an eye out for some thin angle. I think a rack like that would work well with a few magnets to hold it on the side of my big tool cabinet.

    Geez Terry... nice rack.... lol... can't believe I said that! I dunno Vaughn, that pail full of clamps looks like about 20 lbs worth so you're going to need more than magnets to hold it up when you start grabbing things in a hurry. Must have been father's day in the shop, I was thinking about the earlier post of devising better methods of holding things for hammering and in the press (since I don't have a nice big swage block like Terry's). Yukon says the cheap cast iron plates are a no-no...

    These are the pieces of JD drawbar that I have been using ... pretty much indestructible and the holes come in handy too...

    I'm eyeing up broken parts from the deep tiller again. This plate was replaced because of the crack by the bolt hole and the new shank didn't fit it. If I had 2 of them with shapes cut into the edge, I could hold them together in the press with threaded rod welded to the ends. It would be much sturdier and safer. The upright ends would need to be cut off.

    After complaining about how hard my big tool chest was to move around, I decided it needed a new handle. Small screw up, I should have welded on the bottom instead of the top... oh well... it works. Even found some plastic caps in the junk drawer to finish it up.

    Les you could prob make something work with that shank bracket. Tool box handle looks cool. I suppose you could have motorized it and made it self propelled....

    And thanks for the compliment..... I think.

    Nice, those chain vise grips are my favorite for rolling pipe welds. You never gave enough vise grips either. I lost track and still cannot pass up a pair at garage sales. I always buy ball pein hammers, chisels, and punches CHEAP ! Then I give them to the young kids I'm teaching.
    PVC socket caps fit perfect on black schedule 40 pipe by the way. I know they do on the real made in USA stuff . That import junk maybe a little tight.

    Re: Blacksmithing tools

    Since we are talking about vise grips and clamps I thought I would share this recent score.
    I bought these 18" bar style vise grip clamps for only $5 each from my local Tractor Supply Company store.
    They are pretty good quality. Much better or tighter than Harbor Freight but not as good as Bessey. For only $5 each they seem well worth it.
