    Thanks Jm, yes it gets used for all sorts. Punching, fullering, hot setting, stamping out funky shapes. There's a pile of tools i've made for it there on the shelves. Most stuff is a one off, which means new tooling depending on the design. Its fun making squishing tools. Would like to get some patterning tools for damascus made for it soon. I've not explored that area of damascus much yet.

    My pleasure, if anyone is ever in the area, drop in and visit Metal land.

    Plenty tools to keep you busy.
    I have said it many times - there is never too many tools.

    Really?? I will visit the Metal Land sometime next year to see the final process of etching for a Damascus... and handling if possible and bring it home with me.... NOt free of course.... but at a Hammered price! just kidding

    Alot of heavy duty epqt there. I suppose that when you calculate all the tools and equipment.. would have cost you some serious money

    Your right there Marko, more get , more want. I've been really jammy over the years with picking up the presses pretty cheap, right place, right time sort of thing. I nearly sprung for a BIG hammer several years ago, I think it was a 4cwt, until I realized it would cost 5 times as much to install as to buy it.

    David, you would be welcome to visit Metal land anytime. The equipment has mainly accumulated with larger architectural and sculptural projects. Though I started with a loan from the Prince of wales trust fund, which bought me my hammer and the vertical press, which was a great start.

    Cool toys, Will. I had forgotten that you are a bit of a ringer in that you have apparently been playing around with metal for a fair amount of time before you decided to make kitchen knives.

    Wow. Not to make a horrible bump, but I am in awe of that workshop.
