Just been plotting along in the shop and addressing things I’ve been neglecting for a bit. Getting the dies all tuned up, they work great, but on 16g steel the shrinking dies weren’t making a full tuck because the belt was slipping. So chain drive it is! @brodiefromalberta also said “go chain, it’s way more punk rock” that’s all I needed to hear!
Making some dies for the power hammer. 2 of them I’ll make into a set of thumbnail dies, 1 will be a flat top die and the other 10 will be going to @bennettechprecision to get various radius’ cut on his CNC.
@handbuiltshow was great! So good to see old friends, finally meet some more IG friends and new ones. Huge thanks to @logarrr and @bbytejas for giving me a place to crash and everyone for showing me a good ol’ time in Texas!! Bummed I had to come back home but looking forward to next year!!
Well that was a fantastic weekend. Met a bunch of great dudes, learned a ton, got to catch up with friends, and another exciting thing coming down the pipe! Thanks so much for everything @sosametalworks !!!
Put a ton of work into my power hammer over the last few days. She is solid and hits hard now. Have a couple little issues to work out, then makes a bunch of dies. I’ll have a video of it for you all tomorrow!
