That is pretty awesome idea to be honest. I don't have room or really a need to have a power hammer at this time, but if I ever do decide to get one I think I will use a log splitter to build one.

How are you likely that English Wheel?  I too have always wanted one.  My new shop is underway and I need to get a brake and a bead tool as well  :bigsmile:

Well, to be honest I have not really used it yet too much but I can see its value. This machine seems to be well built and well thought out. I believe this is a gen 2 model. Down side is that it doesn't come with any anvils but I did find some anvils from Northern Tool which I ordered. Time will tell how useful it will be.

My son and I are toying with a couple project ideas, rat rod or rock crawler.  Good platforms to practice metal work.

Oh yeah, I love building rat rods. Not super ratty, but basically an old vehicle built whatever way I think is appropriate.

What car? He asked me about EFI, so I don't know anything about buying a car.

Cool shop you are building there.
I have been a plastic injection mold maker for 35+ years.
Tools are awsome still. Have a mill and lathe in my "shop".
Made my own brake that will bend 23" wide. Also reeeeealy want an English wheel also. Mostly to test what could be done. Might make one of those also.

Thats very cool. I bought that E wheel and have used it a few times already, pretty cool but you need all of the dies to really explore its capabilities. I am still sorting out my mill to a degree but am getting it done. Specifically I am waiting on the motor for my power feed to come back from being repaired.

Lol yes a bit far.
There was more in my head than I posted...
I meant instructions on "how to" if you need to figure something out.

Not much to report as I have not worked on the car for some time, life/work/family/weather has all conspired to keep me from it. I did however spend some money on parts, I ordered and received a flywheel and some new FW bolts. I plan to order the head gaskets soon, then I need a cam and push rods. My intention is to build a run stand and get it running that way before installing it. I need to get back to the body and get that sorted out so I can begin to move forward actually building the car.

I have been having a little fun playing/learning my mill and lathe, not sure what I will be milling or turning for the car but so far I have been doing a fair amount of gun work so it has been good.

Every winter I ***** and wish I had installed heat in my shop and every summer I forget about it... As you can imagine I am in the complaining stage as the temps in western WA have fallen, I do have a space heater which works, just have to keep putting diesel into it and it is loud. Stay warm out there.
