    Re: Blacksmithing tools

    Oh we could go... the question is whether or not we'd get back home. I need to make an adapter bar for my cheapy 20 ton press too. I've got a set of push punches that were made for another style.. I'll keep your adapters in mind when I do that. Probably get done before I build a larger brake. Maybe.... damn squirrels....

    For a power press build one
    Only If you live on farm you could use tractor Hydraulic's to power a Hydraulic cylinder found at the local farm supply company.

    FYI I done that one in past.

    The last one I built was for 8" wide 1" thick flat bar.

    Geez. What a dummy. It just occurred to me the reason for the poor rebound results was partially because I used the same ball bearing I keep around for big anvils.

    Using a proportionately smaller ball bearing yielded rebound results in the 60% range.

    I never knew you were supposed to use a relatively proportionally sized bearing for the bounce test!

    Good info if I ever get a *real* anvil.

    Re: Blacksmithing tools

    lol... pretty sure the 1" steel ball is the standard... you do bring up a good point though. Is that really the same measure when testing smaller anvils?
