    Forge vent inside? Any running in enclosed space? CO levels?

    If you buy decent CO monitors with a digital display they will display at 30ppm and above; but the alarm won't sound until the concentration is dangerous (around 400ppm). 50 ppm is the OSHA limit for an 8 hour shift so if you stay under that you should be plenty safe. I would suggest looking...

    Forge vent inside? Any running in enclosed space? CO levels?

    I started with a small hood hanging over the forge, it never worked well so I kept adding to it until it basicly enclosed the forge. Not only does it work very well at drafting out CO and borax fumes it really helps with the radiant heat coming off the forge. My new hood will be built in a...

    Surface grinding

    For higher material removal rates I've found the best method is to remove .010" on the Z axis while feeding your Y axis in at .020" per pass using a 36 grit wheel and flood coolant. After completing a full pass flip the bar and grind the opposite side. As you grind the leading edge of the wheel...
