    Workshop picture tour.

    Well the workshop was unusually tidy for a monday morning, so I thought I would get some pictures My humble workshop is on an industrial estate in Hereford. I've not been in this workshop more than a year but have been on this site for about ten years. I moved not to long ago from a big breezy leaky tin tunnel not 200 yards away. It was still an effort to move This one is a bit smaller, but its waterproof, which is a real luxury I work on my own for the larger part, with the help of my machines. I regularly have work experience students come and help though, especially If I have a larger scale project on.

    Through the shutter door.


    My work table in the middle there, overbuilt of course, but you never know what you'll have to build on it.



    Couple of new additions, most of my tools are pretty old. But these work fine.


    My good old Donkey Saw, in need of the belts changing at the moment.


    Grinding bench



    This big boy saves me allot of heat on larger projects. 100 ton horizontal press, would have been used for cold curving railway track originally.



    Vertical forging press and various tooling


    My little trusty Anyang 40K


    Loads of tools, I could do with making a load more tongs, but I've been saying that for years. As i'm mostly on my own I use allot of spring tools on a tool holder.

    Coke Forge. Actually the same one I made at college, although its had a few new canopys and forge bottoms.



    Fly press, such a handy bit kit.



    Some assorted carbon steels and test laminate billets.


    My little welding furnace, actually a converted enameling kiln, with a home made burner.


    Bigger gas forge, rarely gets lit these days, too thirsty.


    New toy. A friend of mine built this. I have it for 6 months to test it for him, i'll be building one very similar in the mean time but will hopefully be getting some help with the electric box of tricks.

    This one is just about long enough for a 300mm Wa Suji. So far seems to work very well, he's a clever chap.

    Thanks Chaps, My girl friend calls my workshop "Metal land". My little Anvil is a Peter wright. A wrought one with a welded on top. It does a lot for its size.

    Thanks Mike, Its still a novelty not having water dripping on my head while i'm forge welding. The old place was a bit more Mad max style,
