    Installing my new work shop

    Thanks! Yes, I've spend some money, but I try to spend it wisely, thinking about the most useful quality tools I can get for a reasonable price. I didn't want to skimp on the belt grinder, because I think it's the most important tool, and it is by far the most expensive tool I bought. I'm sure...

    Installing my new work shop

    Finished my anvil stand! I couldn't have done this without my drill press, as the holes in the blocks need to line up exactly. Bolts are recessed in the wood. The anvil is caulked to the wood stand and held in place with a piece of wood on each side. Two chains clamp the anvil down in the other...

    Netherlands / Belgium Restaurant Recommendations

    I think you mean De Kuiper, not in Antwerp but in Vilvoorde. Really oldschool, great people.

    Netherlands / Belgium Restaurant Recommendations

    I live in Bruges. Many good restaurants here, just avoid the typical tourist restaurants. In Brugge I would have a look at Locàle, Lieven and Zet Joe/Refter In Gent check Roots, Oak, Maste, Yalo.

    Also I picked up the wood for my anvil stand yesterday. I will glue the blocks together and then bolt the threaded rods through so everything is clamped together. Project for next weekend. The blocks are 63 cm high, the anvil is 22 cm, so total hight will be 85 cm, just above my knuckles.

    Installing my new work shop

    I asked a local metal construction company to make a muffler in stainless steel so I can have a better temperature control in my forge for the heat treatment. Inside is a thermocouple that can measure up to 1300°C. As you can see the isolating kao wool inside the forge is already coated with...

    Installing my new work shop

    Yay! The issue with my grinder is finally sorted out. It was me who made a stupid mistake in the wiring. It's running so smooth now. Well, a bit frightening also at top speed.

    Installing my new work shop

    I bought this used cute little anvil. Still have to make a stand for it. It's a 52 kg Peddinghaus. Bigger is better, but I still want to be able to move it, so this size is a good compromise.

    I also made a rack for my belts. A bit over-engineered maybe, but I consider it practice with my wood band saw.

    Installing my new work shop

    Last weekend I finished the work bench for my grinder and made all the connections Unfortunately I can't get it to work. The variable frequency controller keeps giving an error, too low voltage. According to the seller it has to do with my electrical installation at home. Anyone has an idea?

    Need a touch-up solution. Your advice? [ANSWERED]

    I have the same stone, I’m sure you will like it. Excellent and inexpensive (compared to jnats). As @Nemo suggests, I use a small coticule to raise some slurry.

    Installing my new work shop

    Blacksmith tools arrived: a 'beginner set' of tongs and a few different hammers ranging from 450 g to 1500 g (The tong on the left seems pretty useless but it's the one that came with the forge.)

    bikes bikes bikes

    OK well I might get flamed here for posting an e-bike in this thread for cycling enthusiasts... but I'm not a racer or a mountainbiker, I use my bike to go to town, short rides etc. I absolutely love my new bike, Ampler Axel, got it a couple of weeks ago. I love the simplicity of the design: no...

    ☕️ Coffee!

    I still work with my basic bread oven/heatgun combo, but I’ve been lusting after the Cormorant roaster: https://cormorantroasters.business.site Seems well made, a copy of the big industrial roasters just smaller. Otherwise Hottop, Gene café and Aillio bullet all seem solid choices (in different...

    Installing my new work shop

    My forge just arrived! Devil forge with two burners. I know one burner is enough to forge, but I'd like to use this forge for heat treating as well, and 40 cm depth and two burners will help to do that. I know a heat treat oven is better but that's out of budget right now. Also I mainly want to...
