    Awesome product - honestly, I've never seen patent numbers engraved right on a product!

    I found this 28" long blow horn stake close to home! ( 8 minutes away)

    It cleaned up nicely.....

    I got this little railroad track anvil on Friday for $20.




    A half hour with the wire brush and grinding wheel made it much more respectable.

    Re: Blacksmithing tools

    Why Why WHY do craft brewers always put a chocolate flavoring in stouts??? Just because they're dark doesn't make them a Hershey bar .

    Bare RR rails here are always priced like gold - $100/ft is not uncommon.

    Maybe try the Goose Island Bourbon County Stout. I'm not a Stout drinker but this is pretty good. One is enough for me.

    I'm more of an IPA guy.

    I like an occasional Guiness as well... but I find any more than 2 of them is a meal.

    I made some home brew beer once. A friend told me it was more like a stout than a beer....maybe that's why I had to chew it when I drank some!

    Calling all blacksmiths!

    There is a Johnson 133 gas forge/furnace coming up for auction on June 26 in Snyder TX if anyone need a commercial grade forge. This one looks like it is in good shape - all the bricks are intact. As we get closer, I'll take a better look at it & post a link to the auction.
    This is a video of it's little brother - a 122.

    Just an FYI. It doesn't matter if it was originally used with propane or natural gas.

    An nozzle swap is all that is required.

    Thanks for posting cwby. I hope someone from here gets it at a good price.

    Re: Blacksmithing tools

    Vaughn wanted some tubes for drill bits.

    These might be a little bigger than he wanted, but serve a dual purpose. Praline cookie container to start with and tool holder later.

    The end caps come off just like other tubes.

    I know V was after containers for smaller bits but this is how I store my bigger ones.




    The entire set can be taken easily to the DP if necessary.

    Re: Blacksmithing tools

    Here's one for the hive mind....

    I don't have any gear racks to play around with, but I sure wish I did! Something this big would actually be useful for another project I have in mind.

    Anyhow, I can see that they're gear rack, and that the teeth mesh perfectly. That tells me there has to be a slot filed into it for the hot steel to set down into, but the slot can't be so deep or the top teeth won't make an impression. The bottom teeth are just there to keep the top aligned as you strike it.

    Sound about right?

    Any reason for the sloppy joint between the hardy and the spring? If you're using 3/8" round bar, would you want the groove you file into the bottom to be 3/18" deep at the big end so you have plenty of meat in the center of the spiral for strength? Thinner than half-thickness of the parent bar?

    I think it's great because you're not twisting the bar so much as you're swaging the threads in much like making a bolt in a factory today.

    Re: Blacksmithing tools

    Here is an idea for your swage tools.

    Put slices of pipe on them then add googly eyes inside the pipe.

    You gotta have fun while working.

    Nom, nom, nom

    I bought some of those googly eyes. I used them on quite a few art pieces.

    Just a reminder about this Johnson Forge auction. It is Saturday 6/26. There is also some nice welding equipment, a Clark bender, & a large lot of Hossfield bending tools.

    Well the forge sold locally for $150.00. Nice Miller Shopmaster & feeder sold for $575.

    I bough the Hossfield bender. Now I have to go through all the dies & see what I have.

    I have the catalog but I think you can download it also. Trust me, you will need it

    I quickly discovered finding out what you have is one thing. Finding out "what you are missing to make those parts useful " is another matter. LOL

    Hope you have better luck than me.
