BC9 I SHOW MY BLACKSMITH TOOLS

TREADLE HAMMER

Here can you see photos from then I made my treadle hammer and soon also a video on how it works. 

I did use a 10 kilo hammer head and it turned out to be ideal. You want at least 7 kilos.

Carport spring from the local junk yard.

Old hammer modyfied to fit the same hardy tools I use in the anvil + a piece of plate from the local junk yard.

Used some angle iron to keep it in place.

10 kilo made by DSI (danish steel industri) - the company is now closed.

The spring is what makes the treadle hammer works.

First prototype of a treadle. One in steel is to heavy.

Ready to use.

BICYCLE GRINDER

Here can you see photos from then I made the grinder and some of my old ones + a video showing it and how I use it. 

Old stone made for grinding with water. But you don't need a stone made for grinding if you like me don't grind on the stone - in that case just make your own stone or use wood etc.

Old bikes.

First prototype - that gear was way to big and didn't work very well.

Part from one of my old grinders

A small gear next to the grind stone was what I find ideal. I did just glue it in place.

SWAGE BLOCKS, AXE DRIFTS AND BOLSTER PLATES

Here can you see a few photos from then I made them and a video showing the tools and how I use them. 

Mild steel

Leaf spring

CLAMP

Here can you see photos from then I made it and I video showing it and how it works. I use it all the time for making axes, hammers and top tools etc. 

THE FORGE

Here can you see photos from then I made it and soon a video showing it. 

Cast iron firepot made for blacksmithing - I did buy it cheap and restored it.
