Neat stuff jasnt.  It seems like a fun hobby.  I am slowly gathering parts and pieces to get into the game.  First off I have to teach myself to weld.  Just picked up a little Lincoln 140C and am wiring up my garage for some 220 and a couple dedicated 110 circuits. 

Has anyone used one of these portaband tables?:

I like the idea of just mounting my portaband to it rather than taking up more space with a dedicated band saw at this time.
Dreams are forever on the mind, realization in the hands.

For the last few years our immediate family has exchanged homemade gifts for Christmas. I made my daughter a purse hanger. (to hang purse off of bar or table)

 Eight layer Damascus billet was made using 1095 and 15N20 steel.

I drilled about 1/3 of the way into billet to give it a rain drop or circular effect.  I used a butane torch to give it some color.
She loves turtles, I hope she likes it.

I got bored and decided to lite my forge and heat my shop last week.  Figured I would save some money on Christmas presents an make my own. 

I started with a coil off a 69' chevy nova, cut off a chunk threw it in the forge and started pounding.I did a heat treat in oil, and tempered them in the oven,  A trip to home Depot for $5.00 worth of walnut and some epoxy.  Three knives for just under $12.00.

Got some work done today. Finished drifting my soft hammer. Fits the handles ok after a quick touch up with the rasp. 

 

I finially finished the hot cut I made at class.

Started straighting some coil and decided to make some hot punches and a small fuller punch. Then figured I may as well make some punch tongs.   Radiused the edges on the bottom swage and made my first rivet with it. Also made the rivet for the tongs
