    Don’t worry guys. No matter how much stuff I sell I will still have lots of “stuff”.

    Maybe I should start a separate thread or post somewhere you guys don’t frequent. Sheesh!

    BTW. I listed my homemade welding bottle cage today...

    Re: Blacksmithing and forging

    When it rains, it pours!

    Supposed to take a picture for a customer last night, but forgot. The battery in the camera was charging and by the time I remembered....

    So, today I make sure the battery is good and that I take the camera into the shop with me. Get everything set up and ready to go.... and I forgot to put in the memory card!
    Unbelievable!!

    I pay attention to omens, and that was certainly an omen. So, I put the brackets into the forge to burn off the galvanizing (fans blowing out the window), finished up what little I had to do while that was going on.... and not I'm enjoying a cold beer.

    27 hooks forged and ready for the mail. Missed the USPS deadline by a few minutes, which is par for the course, so everything will go out in tomorrow's mail. Still behind on orders, but I'm slowly making a dent in the backlog.

    25 railroad spikes drilled with a pair of 7/32" holes and ready for forging.

    8 bracket blanks cut from 3x3x1/4 parallel-wall angle iron.

    Tomorrow, I've got a slew of work to do!!

    You’re just hurt because he hasn’t written.

    I actually talked the customer into a waxed finish for that traditional look..... and have been kicking myself ever since. That galvanizing would make a very nice primer for a black finish and I wouldn't be sitting here smelling the fumes from burning it off.

    Such is life, though.

    Only 7 more to go and I can get them out in the mail. Of course, I'll have to work them in as I can. While they are desperate to get them so they can finish their stair railing.... I'm just a wee bit behind and can't afford to put them at the front of the line.

    You know there was a movie with Michael Keaton a long time ago...... I'll bet the technology has improved a lot... then you'd have plenty of time to get other things done
