    I know you're busy Marko, but just so I know, did my submission through the contact form go through? I send it a few days ago and haven't gotten anything - just wanted to make sure it wasn't a technical glitch or something. Thanks.

    actually named Mike

    Checking in!

    the move to the new shop turned out to be a nightmare. Everything took longer than expected - electrical, setting up the shop, moving equipment and hooking up. I am *almost* done after two months of work. Anxious to go back to making knives.

    On the positive note, my upstairs neighbors are skilled leather workers - one is actually a cobbler (a really good too, his work is amazing). They have an amazing shop filled with equipment. I think there will definitely be some collaboration.

    I thank all of you who been patient for the work I owe. I hope this new place will be a new chapter in my journey.

    Thanks,

    Marko

    Moving is a nightmare, take your time and get everything ready before starting to make knives.

    Before and After Pics.

    Fully rebuilt and ready. We de-greased, washed, stripped of the old paint, replaced any worn parts with newly machined, painted, replaced the dies, replaced the motor. This hammer should go trouble free for another decade or more, just basic maintenance like lubricating mechanical parts and cylinders.

    Should have it in my shop withing a couple of months. The weight of this 80kg hammer with the 1.75" metal plate is 4 tons!!! No iron was spared in making this big boy. It also sits on 2" of conveyor rubber. Perfect for my rented shop.

    Just one and I am already running out of space. 840 square feet (78 square meters) is not that much, actually, if you do all work in-house.

    Sweet work on the refurb! Now all we need are some nice action pic's or an avi/mpeg to metallica please!

    To bad you don't know anyone who might sell grinders, tables, plattens/jigs, etc. - that might help you get things set up nicely ...

    = ;-)
