Blacksmithing, Bladesmithing, forging
« on: Mar 01, 2017, 11:07:12 »
So, I know at least a couple guys on this forum dabble in the smithing. I decided to give it a go.

Built a small forge:



A new to me 1930 Forge blower with original rheostat:



Beat the shit out of a railroad spike the other day. It is really starting to take shape.



After lots and lots of filing.



I'll post up other projects as they come along.

Show me what y'all have been working on.
I'm going to eat your brains and gain your knowledge.

HF 1" belt sander is 40 bucks.
I use one 2-3 hrs a day every day and it hasn't let me down yet.

You are doing good! Normally smiths start making S hooks and nails. If you can beat something into a round shape you are on the right track. The HF belt sander's are hit and miss. Some of them don't have enough power to knock off loose rust. You can build your own belt sander and have something that will work all the time. Wayne Goddard a noted bladesmith wrote a book titled "$50 Knife Shop". It's a really good guide to building up your equipment on a budget. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/wayne-goddards-50-knife-shop-revised-wayne-goddard/1018008502
