    I like it. My only negative comment is that it looks like you could push it over from the side. Is it just plain heavy enough that it is not the case?

    Well yes, it would bounce around from rebound energy, and is laterally sensitive, but i have it anchored to my slab floor with 5/8 diameter anchor bolts, so all is good.
    Here also is the forge i made from an old propane tank. Someone offered free scrap metal online in our community so i went and came away with old dimensional steel some propane tanks and steel bed frames and some small “A” frames that looked to be a steel saw horse that was torch cut. From those i cobbled a stand for the forge and used the bed frame casters to allow me to roll it around.

      The pins are recycled broken mill ends. The rest is scraps I had sitting in the shop.

      Very nice machine. Much like a mechanical claw used in robotics.

        Now that is a nice bit of engineering.
        Yeah, I have a few broken cutter shanks too 😳

            • Well, I really like it. I’ll refrain posting any photos of my home built hammers, I think!

                  I don't remember giving you my mailing address Tim, do I need to send it to you? 😎

                    A yew is also a tree in English, which is of course a Germanic language. "Pensioner" in translation used both "yews" and referred to the "jaw", so there was confusion. "Translations by machine" can be surprising sometimes.

                    Finding all places that "yews" was used, I finally decided it was the "ways", and then the "pine type tree" shape is what we call the tail of a dove, which is the same shape (dovetail ways).

                                Drilled and tapped the brass head for a brass threaded rod then drilled and tapped the Ipe and it screws on.
