  • Wester von Burgermeister

    The measurement of a drill press is the distance from the center of the spindle to the edge of the column, then doubled. So if you measure 5 inches, you have a 10 inch drill press. This is referred to as the swing of the drill press which is the largest diameter piece the drill can handle.

    First video of yours I've seen, but admitting that you'r 100% wrong when someone explained a new way to look at the issue was enough for me to subscribe. Kudos. So many people refuse to ever admit that they are wrong. My father was one of them for the most part. He could argue and convince a calculator that 2+2=5.

    So not finding any more videos after this. First thing I thought of after the last video ( when you didn't have enough stock for the flipper tab) is to make it a front flipper. Just need a little tab on the front of blade going up taller instead of out fatter. Just a thought though.

    I enjoy your content ! Question-a couple of years back you posted a video of the installation of a wind turbine on your farm. What have been the benefits and what were the disappointments? I live on a family farm-500 acres with a perfect hilltop layout where barn is located for a wind turbine. The goal is to create off grid capability. We have a good well also. Have you considered installing an array of solar panels in conjunction with the wind power generated from turbine? Curious to know if the costs of the turbine have been repaid through energy created. Your thoughts? Thank you !!!

    • Simple Little Life
      Simple Little Life 3 days ago

      Thank you! That was a multi blade windmill we installed and technically they’re different than what is considered a wind turbine. The multi-blade is better for work that requires higher torque/heavier loads like a water pump. That’s what we used it for at my dads place. I wish I could help but other than research I have no experience with wind turbines 👍

    • Simple Little Life
      Simple Little Life 4 days ago

      Cool. I’ve never tried the Ken onion version but I have the original work sharp and I’m not a fan. Having said that, you could take 100 guys that can get razor sharp blades, give them all every single sharpening method out there, and they‘ll all gravitate to one being better than others. And it’s a sure thing they’ll all chose something different. 😆👍 Nice to have options for sure.

    • zero g templar
      zero g templar 5 days ago

      @Simple Little Life I've tried several tho not all sharpening systems, from Japanese wheat stones, to several different grinders and the previous version of the work-sharp, and out of all of those in my opinion the Ken onion Work-sharp has been the easiest sharpening system to obtain a razor sharp edge on my knifes.

    • Simple Little Life

      Thank you very much! That’s a really hard one. The PW do an amazing job for less money and they’re fast. Bummer is there’s a learning curve and it’s easy to overhear the blade. WE is a way “safer” way to go in terms of not wrecking a knife, but it’s also slower. If I could only have that I have a few years experience with them....I’d go PW. Saving sharp in very little time 👍

    The manufacturer recommends that the wheels go in the opposite direction where the wheels turn up and away from you. Opposite the way you normally would use it for safty reasons. When I bought my wheels it was stressed many times not to Use it in the conversational way. You might check your literature. Thanks I'm going to use mine for the first time today.

    Another inexpensive tool that you can add to your blacksmithing setup is to get a small section of railroad track and use it as a flatter for flattening out forged knives, etc. It works really well. I would like to say that I came up with this idea but I saw it somewhere and it's really a cheap, economical way to get the same result without spending over $100 for a cheap flatter from a blacksmithing supplier.
