    Waste oil forge

    It is an idea that has been floating around in my head for a while....using wast oil to fire a forge up to welding temp. Anyone that does much forge welding knows fuel is expensive! I was looking to keep it as simple as possible so gravity fed fuel and low pressure air with no fancy nozzles to get clogged. This is the solution i came up with. Based around an old propane bottle. Filled with water and cut top and bottom off. P1090436 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090437 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090438 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr"> Brake disk welded on vent end and an old chimney pot for the inner skin. P1090440 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090442 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090443 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr"> Ceramic wool on the inside of the door, base and between the pot and the steel bottle. P1090444 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090445 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr"> Painted rigidizer on the ceramic wool on the door and around the pot, layed a piece op polythene on and closed tight and let it dry. The pot was left 20mm proud so it pushed into the wool and formed a checked seal. P1090446 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr"> Cored a hole through the lot for the burner. P1090447 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090448 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr"> Burner 50mm scaffold pipe with stainless milker nipple nozzle on the end. Something like a 8mm steel pipe down the middle for an oil feed. Initially i left the end of the air pie restricted thinking it would spray the oil better but it restricted the air flow too much so i cut it back to nearly full bore. P1090449 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090450 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090451 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090453 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090454 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr"> After first fire the chimney pot is cracked but still in tact. I put o piece of stainless steel 6mm plate in the chamber where the oil lands. This needs to be red hot for the oil to vaporize and ignite. The first burn i just threw some paper and sticks in and lit them up then started injecting oil and air. For the next burn i added a quick hitch point pr a propane line to pre-heat before starting the oil injection. P1090455 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090456 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr"> Pics of the assembled unit. Waste oil holder is just a plumbers gas bottle with the bottom cut off and a simple tap to control the oil flow. P1090457 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090458 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090459 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr"> Here she is on her maiden run at forging steel. Ever optimistic i went for forge welding straight off. About 12 strands of bed spring and 4 strips of file welded in a bundle then forge welded like a cable weld, twisting them together. These pics are all with the burner shut off, just the after glow!

After running at welding temps for a couple of hours it has actually started to melt the fire-clay chimney pot! May replace it with fire-bricks or refractory, but will wait till it disintegrates, P1090470 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr">P1090471 by Terry Griffiths, on Flickr"> In summary: The whole thing was built entirely from scrap.The fuel is even free. The only thing i paid for was the ceramic wool and welding rods. Best used outside. It burns surprisingly clean but i wouldn't chance running it in an enclosed space. The blower is an old variable speed hoover...again off the dump. It pumps out insane heat but is quite adjustable. It will light up again without pre-heat half an hour after the previous shut down....just turn on the oil and air. Finally here is the forge welded Damascus blank.

    Tanto

    Just finished this Tanto style knife. It is made for a KITH (Knife In a hat) on another forum. You make a knife to a chosen style, names all go in a " hat" and you all get someone else's knife. This one is made from a HSS Planer blade, black denim wrap Micarta and copper trims.

    Camping Hatchet

    My lad recently did a bit of wild back-packing/camping and wanted a light but useful hatchet to carry in his pack. He ground the shape out an old axe head and made the handle from ash. Very Vikingesk in appearance.

    Kitchen Slicer

    Another design completed by my son....I can't get near the grinder now-a days. One for the kitchen in 1095, very thin ground, will make a great slicer. Meranti scales. He also makes solid wood chopping boards one can be seen in the background of some of the pics.

    Seax

    Sgian Dubh

    Following a request from a work colleague to make a Sgian Dubh for his son in-law this is the very rustic end result. I had a free hand the only request was his initials in runic writing somewhere on the knife. He works in forestry so i thought chainsaw chain forge welded to series 2 Land Rover spring was appropriate. The Yew handle is local to where he grew up.

    Big Hudson Bay

    This design has a special reminiscence for me as it was the design of the first knife i was involved in making some 35 years ago. An old boy, an engineer to trade took an interest in me as a lad and forged up a similar blade with me i "helped". He gave it to me some time later and i still use it today. It is a good all rounder for butchering up a carcass, recently helping a mate who has a small holding and does his own butchering and he admired it. As he gave me half a carcass for the freezer i have made it as a gift for him. Series 2 Land-rover leaf spring deferentially heat treated blade, brass from an old door hinge and denim/resin wrap handle so again all re-cycled materials. First one with an attempt at a makers mark.....by no means perfect....but he can hardly complain as it is a gift.

  18. As the regulars will know i have done a few carved antler Opinels. This one is not my carving. I had 3 pendants made with the idea of marrying them with an opinel. This one is 98mm long and houses a no 6 Opinel very nicely. Self lubricating phosphor bronze contact plates and collar. Silver pendant ring for attaching to a chain or thong if desired.

  23. ok guys busy week here for me again . lst week mas production this week finnished knives of a slightly higher calibre ! first job of the week socks sent this knife for a refurb . bit of elbow grease and some leather work later . the pitting is permanant so they had to stay where they are as the metal is thin as is , i did a wet form sheath with antique look . then was on to this bushcrafter , its not full sized and would suit a smaller hand, lads/ ladies although it does fit in my hand and is safe , its very sharp and sports my own burl oak handles with brass pins and lanyard , with my take on a bushcraft sheath , articulated with brass hoop . all in all i love this knife that was once a file ! that done i moved on to some damascus i forge weeks ago . its a 20 to 30 layer billet that i worked in two difgferant ways to get differant effects , first is this one . iv not made a large knife for along time now and wanted something for seriouse hunting of larger game or camping bushcraft etc . handle is green and black dymond wood which is laminated wood that is stabilised wih impregnated resin , water and shock proof and can not warp or move . the sheath is my fav today it has a 3x welt at the top which holds the blade in with out and clips etc , again articulated with brass hoop . the pattern is "whales throat camo" i just made that up ! straight laminate that i randomised , as you grind through the billet you expose another layer . any way i really like this one to ! materials for the blade are 15n20 nickel steel and reclaimed steel from an antique two man wood saw blade i had . then the next one started from the same billet , but i put 3 twists in it each one in the opposite direction to the last , the third is in the handle are and has exposed a star , handle is butterscotch buffalo horn and you can see the etched pattern under the scales . setting is burl oak board and silver birch burl , i want this one to go on ebay as a leter opener as i want to try new markets . after that this was made for you guys . then there is reddawns miniature knife to keep him legal the poaching c**t ha ha only pullin your p***er mate . i forghed this lot up for next week . and handled this and i still jhave this beauty for sale thats about it for this week , i might get some more done tommorow afternoon . all the best matt.
