    Shop tip of the week, stay hydrated in the hot weather... but don't defrost the beer fridge with a hammer and screwdriver. Here's a shot of the new replacement...

    Re: Blacksmithing and forging

    Oh trust me, I don't need help. I'm still trying to work through the list of spring screw ups before harvest gets here. The list keeps getting longer (and more expensive) instead of shorter. 2 exhaust pipes for the 4 wd are coming in close to $3k, new screen for the grain vac is $1.5k, etc, etc, etc.

    92 and my fat *** is done for the day. Only got three hours in front of the forge, but that's more than enough with this kind of heat. Even my fan blowing a steady gale-force wind wasn't enough to keep me from sweating like a stuck pig!

    14 hooks made. Would have been more, but I screwed up the order of operation on 12 of them and had to stop what I was doing to fix the mess I made. Hate when that happens because it's the fastest way to take the wind out of my sails.

    Still, a bad day in the shop is better than a good day working for someone else. Tomorrow, I'll work on the new forge a bit, making sure to get started early in the morning before the heat hits!

    Sure would have been nice to have a fridgidaire full of cold drinks to keep me going, but I think I'd have spent more time in front of the open door than in front of the anvil!
