Pappy's would smoke mine.  This is more of a slow and steady speed.

Monday evening I acquired a quad, pull behind mower, a new smoker, and some other stuff for free.  My brother in laws parents moved into town and left a lot of stuff behind.  We made a trip to salvage some items before a contractor was hired to clean the property up.  I think both of these will need a little work to get them running but they don't look like they have been used much.  They have been sitting in a barn for several years.

I was helping my brother in law clean up a piece of river property that he owns.  It belonged to his grandfather who passed away years ago.  He recently had the old house and sheds torn down.  He needed some help throwing away a few large items left behind.  I saw something in the construction dumpster that caught my eye.  It was a large leaf spring.  I've been looking for one of these for a while.  I want to use it for knife forging.  It's 4' long, 3" wide, and each piece is nearly 1/2" thick at center.  Finding this old chunk of steel made my night.  There's a lot of knives in there.

Great find Clint! You should have enough steel there for quite a bit of forging time.

There's at least one ready made froe there, just cut it to size and put an edge on it!  The price is right!
