Puts sunglasses on for photo, can't see the holds.

Bench top capture from my workshop... These are some of the steel die blocks I keep around my shop for a variety of uses, such as makeshift anvils, weights for pressing/gluing, and, my favorite, finger smashing. Most have been acquired over the years at garage sales and estate sales....I have a hard time turning down a cheap piece of heavy metal that can be used to keep my bench from flying off into space. A must-have for all tinkerers. 😊

Looking through some old photos this morning and found this sneaky shot of some cast steel #Brooks #anvils straight out of the foundry @jessesavageblacksmith you can see exactly how they make these & after the machining it's all down to selective heat treating. It also explains why some large Brooks anvils are prone to the corners being too hard and breaking off #blacksmith #blacksmithing #tricksofthetrade

We will begin the Yater swage block give away tomorrow!! I will announce the details then...in the mean time here is a video of me drilling the frame of a 50 pound hammer in preparation of installing the electric motor brackets. #blacksmith #blacksmithing #blacksmithingtools #powerhammers #powerhammer #tools #tool #vintage #littlegiant #anvil #anvils #hammer #hammers #forge #forged #knifemaking #oldtools #vise #vises #timberframing #timber #lathe #machinist #machineshop #vintage #chisel #wiltonvise #woodworking #swageblock

I WILL BE GIVING ONE SWAGE BLOCK AWAY FOR FREE!!!! Stay tuned!! True story!! So I'm on my way back to the shop just now. It's 7:35 when I stop at a junk yard in Rockdale,Tx. They were not closed so I asked if I could look around. Look what I stumbled on...stacked on top of each other on the lower shelf of a rusty old BBQ pit..I found the guy and let him know that there were a couple items I'd like to buy...we walked back over to the rusty old BBQ pit and he instantly said "no not gonna sell this here pit, see dad and I use to cook all our yard meat on this pit, and I just can't let it go". Yard meat I thought to myself...I saw cats, dogs, a few chickens roaming around but I thought to myself surely not...anyway I said well I'm sure that pit still has a lot life left in it but that's not what I'm after. It's the blocks underneath it that I want. And he replied. "Hell those old junky counter weights you can have them for $50 bucks" needless to say I could not load them fast enough!!! Unbelievable!!! #blacksmith #blacksmithing #blacksmithingtools #powerhammers #powerhammer #tools #tool #vintage #littlegiant #anvil #anvils #hammer #hammers #forge #forged #knifemaking #oldtools #vise #vises #timberframing #timber #lathe #machinist #machineshop #vintage #chisel #wiltonvise #woodworking #swageblock

Today I found myself making anvils under a tent trying my best to avoid the rain that pelted North Carolina today. When there are orders to fill, I am working. #rainorshine
