    Large piece of Bubinga

    It came with about 50 sanding disks and also a few flap disks. I think there were a couple grinding wheels also. I haven't gone through everything in the tool box yet.

    Large piece of Bubinga

    I like it. I think it will be useful and hopefully prettier when it's cleaned up more. I also want to do a diagonal end cut and see what that gives me. If it doesn't look good for knife handles I can make cutting boards out of it. I also ended up with a Porter Cable 7" disc sander from the same...

    Large piece of Bubinga

    I have located a large piece of Bubinga. Roughly 6 feet in length 11 inches wide and 1 3/4 inches thick. I don't believe Bubinga needs to be stabilized. Since it's far more than I could ever use, is there any interest from others here in cuts from it? I'm thinking $15 per piece. Each piece would...

    Looking for input on possible anvil stand and anvil

    That's exactly the type of base I had in mind. Expanding it in size for a real anvil in the future is a good idea. Thanks for the input!

    I don't know of anyone near by with a press. At least not one that big. I'll give this some thought though. Thanks!

    Looking for input on possible anvil stand and anvil

    I really like their anvils. And it would be my preference. But money is really tight right now and I'd like to get going. The 52100 round just seems small. But it would probably work by itself in a pinch.

    Looking for input on possible anvil stand and anvil

    Nice setup. I measured the height I need at about 29" or so, and that's the length I've cut the 4x4's to. For now at least. I didn't think about using a piece of RR track on end. That's an interesting idea. I'll have to give it some thought.

    Looking for input on possible anvil stand and anvil

    I've been tinkering today with cutting some 4x4's for an anvil stand. And I've been thinking how all of this is going to come together. I have one piece of heavy unknown steel as shown here. It has almost no rebound. And I also have a 52100 round that has reasonable rebound. To my...

    Thanks for the well wishes for my wife. As you say the steroids are two-edged And my lung issues are almost normal. The pulmonologist says I'm at 90% of normal. He doesn't expect any further improvement. But I'm able (so far) to do what I want, so I'm happy with that. Best wishes.

    Wow...my wife is on prednisone and she has the same issues of bumping into unknown things and suddenly there's another bruise. Good for you for keeping going. I've had some health issues lately myself, but minor in comparison. It's good to see others not letting things stop them. You're an...

    Growing up my brother was like this. One time he almost took off his thumb with my wood carving set. Then another he ended with about 7 stitches on the top of his head from trying to run under a barbed wire fence. He didn't make it. I waited until I was in my thirties to start crunching my body...
