  • BandAid's Anvil

    This is probably late, but I haven't been over at the picturetrail site to prowl for a long time. Capt. Bandaid, that Anvil and Hammer are REALLY neat!!!!

    Nice work, and quite innovative.

    Al, thanks. It was really pretty simple. I cut it out on the bandsaw, shaped it with the beltsander and drum sander. Finish sanded it, stained and lacquered it, glued it down. It is currently sitting on my desk at work with my business cards resting between the hammer and the anvil.

        That's a beauty, Cap'n. Is that a little reverse metallurgy? Of course, modern metallurgists arre material scientists, dabbling in all materials. You're going to get me hooked on knife making one of these days. We have everything I need at work, since we do our own tool and die work and heat treat our own tooling. Sounds like I'm missing a little gumption, huh? I can always claim that heat treating isn't summer work in Ohio; I'll have to wait until winter. Keep up the good work and keep posting those pictures.

                The anvil is black walnut as is the hammer head. The base and hammer handle are butternut. The anvil measures about 4' tall and 8' long.

                      Our feed belt keeps moving but Bruce did adjust it the other day when I was done and this is the first time I’ve used it. It kept getting louder so I bet that’s it or it just isn’t tight. Will check it in the morning. Thanks.

                      Betty is the feed belt centered? Do you hear it when the drum is spinning or when just the feed belt is on?
                      I have had the sanding belt stretch, they do that over time, and there was enough hanging out to just kiss the table.

                      I got mine the other day. Also noticed a dearth of Christmas themed projects. I don't recall seeing much Christmas stuff in the Fall issue either. I look forward to new ornament ideas, but those were lacking this year.

                      I do understand some of the constraints in publishing a magazine these...

                      Well, this topic can present a lot of opinions and options. First, if you are seriously considering helical cutting heads, would you take the next step and upgrade to a stationary, floor model planer? Perhaps even a used one. I don't know how much space you have and what your shop power options are,...

                      Our super max has been making a noise that sounds like paper caught but we can’t pinpoint anything. Cleaned what we could, Bruce used dry lubricant, which sounds like an oxymoron to me, and still makes the noise. Started quietly now is louder. Any suggestions before we call for warranty work? I’m...
