Item #9
Forge Work by Wlliam Ilgen
copyright 1912

This is a 236 page ebook written in 1912 as a course of study for manual training in highschool. The book concentrates on forgeing practices, skills and tools. It is very much a how to book. The second half of the book is dedicated to the steel making industry at this time. Although dated there is much useful information in the book. A word of caution some of the descriptions can be misleading from a modern perspective (eg naming of the colors of steel). Please use the information with care. We have learned alot about the dangers in this craft that were not important in 1912.
The book has been scanned in page by page so you will find blank pages etc. It is in pdf format so you will need Adobe reader to view it. The file is 22 Mb. On dial up it takes close to 2 hours to download. On highspeed it takes perhaps 5 minutes. Click on either the Buy Now button or the Members Price to pay.

Item 13
Variable Speed Knife 2 x 72 Belt Grinder / Sander

This is a work horse for the serious knife maker. The variable speed allows you to work effectively on softer materials such as wood, bone, and plastics for handle material. Slow belts speeds prevent burning, or melting of the softer materials. Higher speeds for moving the metal the fastest. The 2 inch by 72 inch belt is the standard for Knife Making and allows the purchase of many off the shelf high quality belts. 220 volts.

Item 14
Kalamazoo 2 x 48 Knife Makers Belt Sander
This is the more economical belt sander for knife making if you are just getting started. It is 110 volt instead of the 220 volts in the above Belt Grinder. You can find a reasonable assortment of grit sizes. A compact sturdy tool. 1/2 hp single phase.

Item 15

A number of years back I built a 20 x 20 addition on the back of my previous workshop. I basically just went from a plan in my head. Sample Shed

Item 16 a,b,c,d
These Items are often purchased together

The stainless steel hose and regulator are 1/4 inch npt ports. You will have to buy two 1/4 inch by 2 inch long, npt black pipe nipples to attach to your forge at your local hardware store. Use good propane rated pipe dope or propane rated T-tape. I have been using this style of regulator on my forges for over 30 years. It is robust and designed for industrial use. You can control the pressure precisely giving you repeatable forge temperatures. Very important when forge welding or heat treating knives.

Just click on the images for details.

Item 17 a
US Solid 15 Kw Induction Forge

For Details just click on the above image.

This is the standard induction forge that blacksmiths have been using recently. If you are tired of lugging in propane tanks or bags of coal this may be an option for you. Running off 220 volts and 40 to 70 amps it is almost as simple as plugging in and adding a cooling system and you are ready to forge. A win for the environment as you are not using any fossil fuels, just electricity.

The big bonus is in the efficiency of use as the steel heats much faster than using conventional forges. More hammering time. You are limited by the size of the coil to what size and shape of steel you can heat. Great for production work. Also in the summer there is almost no radiant heat off the machine, just the hot bar you are working on. For blacksmiths like working in air conditioned comfort!

Derek Melton has a very good article on his induction forge and it is worth reading before you buy one. Click here for Derek Melton Forge Article He does discuss the US solid forge a bit.

Item 17 b
US Solid 25 L TIG Cooler

For details just click on the above image

The matched TIG water cooler for the above induction forge. The induction forge requires constant cool water circulating through the coils. There are several ways of doing this, but the most self contained is using a cooling system similar to the TIG cooler.

Tongs are a vital tool for the blacksmith shop. You can make your own with very little cost. This step by step manual covers 6 different styles of Tongs in detail. More shapes are covered in the Appendix.

Shade 3 Clip on IR and UV Filters Safety glasses

These are an economical Clip On Safety filter glasses that will fit most perscription and clear safety glasses. Suitable for high temperature  forge work such as forge welding. Although there is a color shift with the green tint I found it was pretty quick getting use to the new color range. I find them much cooler on the eyes than my usual rose didymium. I recommend using them for all  your forge work.

Just click on the image above for pricing information, or to purchase. These are a very economical solution for protection in the blacksmith shop.

Item 20
Dayton High Temperature Blower, 115 Volt, 130 CFM
This blower puts out adequate cfm for the gas forges described in my Gas Forge Construction Manual (item 1 above) It also has a separate cooling fan to help prolong the life of the motor. It has a mounting flange but you will have to construct a receiving flange and possibly a mounting bracket.

Item 21
Grizzly Knife Belt Sander / Buffer 
The Grizzly Belt Sander is one of the lowest cost 2 inch by 72 inch belt sanders on the market. I had opportunity to try one out when I was at New York State Designer Blacksmiths meeting. It ran almost silently and had a very smooth operation. It takes a bit to get the tracking just right but after, it is easy to use.

I built my belt sander years ago and looking back I would have been much further ahead to buy this tool if I had known about it. The only advantage with the one I built is that it has a 1.5 HP motor.

Item 23
Smith Soldering Brazing Gas Saver Cutting Torch WDW101 Acetylene
Gas Saver
 If  you do a lot of torch work this Gas Saver will pay for itself  in saved fuel and oxygen many times over. It is designed to shut off the flow of fuel and oxygen when you hang the torch up on the  hook. There is a pilot light  that allows quick ignition with keeping the same settings just by lifting the torch then moving the nozel to the pilot light. Then you are back into business. Very useful  in operations requiring a lot of moving and adjustments then repeated heating.

Item 24
Smith Flashback Arrestors Cutting Torch Mount Set H743
Flash Back Arrestor

An ounce of prevention is worth a lb of cure!. These flashback arrestors prevent a torch blowing up if there is a plugged tip and combustion starts inside an heads back to the hoses. I have had a torch that started inertanl combustion. Very scary and very hot in the hand. I have seen a torch that blew up  from the gasses being forced back. Fortunately I was not holding it. These two units mount on the torch body on the acetelyne line and the oxygen line.

 Item 25
Peddinghaus 77 lbs Anvil
Peddinghaus makes excellent quality tools. This 77 lb anvil is ideal for starting out in blacksmithing. If you are interested in Knife Making it may be all the anvil you ever need. Make sure you mount it well on a stump or stand as this can effectively add to the mass of the anvil if it is well secured.

Item 26
Peddinghaus 275 lbs Blacksmith Anvil
 This is a heavy duty anvil for the most demanding shop. If you are looking at architechtural work or sculptural work this would be an ideal anvil. Larger mass means you can effectively work larger bar sizes. Small items such as knives can be worked easily on a big anvil especially with the flat horn.

Item 27
Sweddish Pattern Cross Peen blacksmith hammer 2 lbs (990 g)
 This is an excellent hammer for blacksmithing or blade smithing. Wood handle for the flexibility of carving it to fit your own hand. This size of hammer I use in the shop for general detail work. Lots of reach on the cross peen.

Item 28
Sweddish Pattern Cross Peen blacksmith hammer 3.3 lbs (1500 g)
 Same pattern as above but with an extra 1.3 lb of weight for serious moving of hot metal.

Item 29

Just click on the image above for details.

This is a high temperature infrared thermometer. It will reach well above the quench temperature of most blade steels. It will also work in casting applications as well. I bought this for heat treating S35VN stainless steel and have been quite pleased with the operation. I do find the laser beam is a touch off targeting. I would practice with mild steel to make sure your targeting is accurate. Blades are pretty small and you want to make sure you are reading the right area.

2732 Deg F is well above the melting point of steel. You could use this for checking forge welding temps although I have not done this yet.
