your in the making mode gary
I'm always making stuff smitty. I post the crap stuff here but keep the really crap stuff to myself. .
i havent seen much crap out of ya yet
Gary, nice work but in my neighborhood, the cost of concave would make that a pricey stamp
Concave is not that expensive here, but I mainly used that because it was a 12 inch off cut of inch by half and since I could never see myself making a twelve inch shoe from that section, I thought I might as well make use of it as a stamp handle.
how does the handle feel gary?
would lighter have been better?
Back to the tool box conversation,
A good mate of mine is Paul, i think he uses one from Billy Crothers
The shoeing Irish farrier Paul Duddy does isn't all that much different than what American farriers do, but they don't get to work in 400-years-old castles.
i shoe in a castle that dates back to 1172
off topic again ,sorry
It appears to me that it may seem to you john, that i m picking on your off topicness, or that you hope that i will single you out...........
while i admire your mechanics in this trade,and many of your contributions to the forums, believe it or not, i m just trying to keep the forums orderly and i get an impression that you would like to see them,the forums ,fail, for whatever reason,
with that, may i suggest that if your not happy here, just don t post,or post somewhere else and be happy, if i have misread your intent, i apologize in advance.
to all here, please try to keep on topic, for the most part i think we do, but the topic of this thread is "things you ve made"
you have misread my intent Ray
its not John that has changed the topic
who in your opinion did?
if you have the same posts to view as me it is quite plain to see it is Gabino who brings the subject of castles up
It feels good to me Smitty. I had some 3/4 3/8 and 7/8 3/8 I could have used, but they both felt a little small in my hand. I usually use a Blurton stamp, which has a cast handle that is quite bulky and heavy, so I guess the inch by half is the closest to that.
To be honest, there's so little posting going on these days that I'm just happy to read peoples' posts - on topic or otherwise!
My wife asked me to make a Christmas present for some friends so I thought I'd have a go at a ram's head poker. ..
