Trying out the new tools!

Finally got "Orange Crush", and the rolling mill all setup, and the shop back in order. Now the fin part....testing out the new tools!

I started out with a few billets of damascus, some large chunks of 4140, and some 1" square stock of 416 and 5160.


The chunk of 4140 started out at 8 1/2" long X 4" X 4", and was able to get it down to 1 1/2" forging hammer stock in just a couple of heats!




Finishing it out was sooo nice using the rolling mill:




I only did the initial welds on the damascus billets, but will try to get pics of working those down into "W" pattern.

I'm really diggin these tools! Now if I can just keep up with what the tools are capable of doing, I should easily double my damascus production!
