    aluminum mould for slingshot lead balls ammo

    I had been wanting to make a mould for lead balls ammo for a long time. I made a first attempt with a piece of aluminum for 6mm lead balls but it didn't work very well. however, I understood my mistake and with another (larger, flatter, more parallel) piece of aluminum I made a good mold for 8mm...

    anvil stump

    the original stump of my anvil was too big in diameter. uncomfortable to move and above all it did not allow me to be as near to the anvil as I like except by placing the anvil itself on the edge of it rather than in the center. so I decided to put it aside for now and use the old stump of my...

    push knife

    I'm not a fan of push knives as well, they are not so vesatile as a normal knife and are dangerous if you handle them improperly but I wanted to give it a try. I'm really glad you like it. Thank you jaxxas!

    the bearded axe project

    I found a 700gr hatchet in a market that had an elongated and teardrop "eye" for the handle with a beatiful shape. I took it with the idea of modifying it and obtaining a bearded one with the addition of a steel beard obtained from the leafspring of a truck thick enough to be forged. then I cut...

    Peddinghaus anvil - cleaning and testing

    well, fit... it is smaller than the pritchel hole so can be inserted there but it can turn and has some play all around. as suggested by Chris the best option could be to use it in the post vise or make ad adaptor for the hardie hole

    Peddinghaus anvil - cleaning and testing

    The cutter is a hardie and I know how to use it but the other one has a stem too small to keep it fixed in the hardie hole. and I don't know how to use it...

    Peddinghaus anvil - cleaning and testing

    yes, as I wrote it was a few years I was looking for something like that, and I would have been satisfied also with a lower quality one.

    Peddinghaus anvil - cleaning and testing

    after a very long search a few days ago, precisely on April 16, 2020, I found this anvil on an online ad and purchased it without seeing it in person. I think the photos are very clear. it is a North German anvil of one-piece forged steel weighing 52kg (115lbs). this style includes a round horn...
