    Propane ribbon burner forge build

    Our ribbon burners are practically identical with the exception that my perforated diffuser is bent and looks like a tent with the peak towards the gas inlet. Also, your burner appears to be slightly deeper, perhaps 1/2" or so. I will post the blower data plate for you tonight. The blower is...

    Propane ribbon burner forge build

    Nice looking forge! I just got mine up and running the other day. Still playing around with the pressure and blower speed settings.

    Shop Moving across BC with a lot of equipment

    How about contacting a commercial transport company? Manitoulin moved both my knee mill and lathe from Ontario for reasonable rates. The down side is that you will have to put your equipment on pallets or crate it.

    Myford Super 7

    Obviously priced for the "discerning" collector of vintage machinery. I wouldn't pay that even if it were in showroom condition.

    Milling Vises

    You are right, shipping could be quite expensive. If I were to purchase a heavy item like a vise, then I would have it shipped to the border and go pick it up.

    Rebuilt 25# Canadian Little Giant

    Thanks! It's not a museum quality restoration, but it works well. How is the brake treating you? Make anything with it?

    Rebuilt 25# Canadian Little Giant

    After more money and time than I care to think about this 25# Little Giant power hammer is back to work. The addition of the brake on the flywheel is a real perk as it gives the smith a lot more control of the ram and eliminates the infamous double tap these machines are known for.

    DUMORE tool post grinder $200 Milton

    Correct, It's a 14-011 model; which is affectionately the Tom Thumb. Hopefully it will be rigid enough to true up some 3 jaw chucks and a couple of other small projects I have.

    Are wives (or husbands...) that bad?

    My wife is very supportive of my hobby and doesn't mind me spending time in the shop as long as I don't ignore family or household duties. I have been trying to get my kids into the shop more and more. They have helped me do some small blacksmithing projects and I am trying to give them a basic...

    I'm a mill beginner

    Greetings from Calgary and welcome to the forum. One thing that I would suggest is that if you are going to buy a drill chuck for your mill then get one that has an integral R8 shank. You can buy drill chucks and R8 shanks w/ Jacob tapers separately, but I believe that they are slightly longer...
