    security

    You might want to look at a security alarm company such as ADT. My 'shop' is half a garage attached to our house. So while the garage itself isn't covered by our alarm the doors are. If local code will let you, consider putting bars across all your doors accept the one you will exit by...

    Couple questions on forge build

    Thanks Ed. I thought there was a cheaper alternative to the ITC-100 but couldn't remember what it was.

    Couple questions on forge build

    Thanks Doug. I'm not certain either. I'm planning on putting a fire brick inn the bottom as a floor and then I can coat the brick with something like ITC-100. I think that will work fine. In reviews on Amazon, where I bought this stuff, several people mentioned using it for a forge. However I...

    Couple questions on forge build

    I appreciate your help Ed. So what about using ceramic fiber blanket and a refractory together? I believe I've seen several forges made that way. Or am I mistaken on what kind of refractory is needed to accomplish that? Here is a photo of what I'm proposing to coat the ceramic blanket with. This...

    What's going on in your shop?

    After Abbott so kindly provided me with a table for my Milwaukee band saw I neglected to post pics. So here's a couple photos. The vise is an old Harbor Freight adjustable vise that really isn't all that good but suffices for this setup. I could remove it from the vise but after spending time...

    Couple questions on forge build

    It will most likely be used mostly for heat treating at first. Though I do want to get more into forging and that's why I thought an all purpose forge that would last a long time would be for the best.

    Couple questions on forge build

    Thanks for the input Tracy. I forget that you can close off one burner, or at least I think I can. I have a split hose from Atlas Forge made for their two burners. But I could probably put a shut off valve in front of one without to much trouble? I'll investigate that.

    Couple questions on forge build

    Thanks for the reply Ed. I'm going to give your suggestions some serious thought. I get the part about that angle being somewhat abstract. That makes sense. I'm going to take a step back from this whole project for a bit and think things over. I do have my little coffee can forge for now which...

    Hang in there Cliff... ICU is both a blessing and a hell. They always have the best nurses in the hospital, but it's always hell to sit and wait. It's good that's she stable. Prayers continued

    Prayers for my wife as she battles cancer

    Cliff I wanted to add that last year my wife was in the ICU twice. The first time I thought we had lost her, but she pulled through. That was the most difficult night of my life. No sleep and making decisions that could be life changing. So just know that I understand what it is like and fully...
