Our second and final day at Fabtech in Atlanta 2018. We got to visit with a lot of Youtube and Instagram folks, as well as see all of the welding and fabrication vendors.
This was an excellent trip with so much to see and learn. I'm glad we went and look forward to the next show!

What happened to hobby Chinese lathe Metal Master MML 1830 V in two years?

I have long been asked to tell about my Chinese hobby lathe Metal Master MML 1830 V. It has been used intensively in my workshop for two years and it’s time to make a full review and revision. Also I'll make some upgrades

Very often, especially on the forums, I hear angry cries that all Chinese machines are a pile of scrap metal, incapable of anything. On my machine, I did a huge amount of work. I believe that it is a great tool for turning small parts, sure it has its drawbacks, but it works quite well in the "out of the box" status

1920s Power Hammer [Restoration] (Disassembly, Inspection, Cleaning)
Hand Tool Rescue


Published on Nov 29, 2018
This is a tool restoration I have been wanting to do for a while! It is a A. B. Jardine & Co. power / trip hammer from around the 1920s. These were called "Canadian Giant" hammers as they closely resemble the "Little Giant" hammers made by a different company.

Out of the two models they made, this specific hammer is the 25lb model vs the 50lb model. This hammer was $150 in 1915, so it puts the value at almost $4000 USD in 2018 dollars!

I picked this up locally about a year ago with plans to restore it once I had the space. In this video, I take everything apart and inspect all bearing surfaces. The babbitt bearings are in fantastic condition and must have been re-poured at some point recently in its life. The other moving parts of the hammer are not in good condition. Many parts have been poorly welded back together and every single hole is worn out. In the next video I will repair all these pieces and add bronze bushings to all the holes so this machine is safe to use again. Even the die blocks need replacing as I cannot trust the welds to hold.

You can actually still buy new parts for these hammers since they are so similar to "Littie Giant" hammers, but the parts are quite expensive.

I am definitely excited to see this thing running, but I do plan on selling this hammer, since I have found an even larger one!

I'd like to thank Evapo-Rust for sponsoring this video.

Blacksmith Tools Shop Tour Part 1
Abom79


Published on Dec 5, 2018
I was privileged to stop by Andrew Alexander's shop, also known as Blacksmith Tools while I was in Texas. Andrew has an absolutely amazing collection of anvils, vises, antique machinery, power hammers, and tools that date back to the 1800's. He also owns the famous Richard Postman "Avils in America" collection. He is a lover of old vintage iron and the way things were built back in the day. He was awesome to let me stop by for a couple hours and visit while I was in town and show me all of his neat collection.

This Yihua 936B is a $22 soldering station that looks very similar to name brand stations, including Hakko. Is the Yihua a bargain or a big piece of trash? I tore it apart to find out.

113 Year Old Machine Shop
Abom79


Published on Apr 3, 2019
While in Georgia we visited a very old machine shop and the owner let me take some video while I was there. I was converted from a blacksmith shop from 1903-1905 into a machine shop and some of the original beams from the line shaft are still in place. The Niles vertical turret lathe was installed new in 1905 and it even has the original documentation. This machine is for sale by the owner. I you are interested in it or one of the old lathes send me and email and put you in contact with the shop owner. It was interesting walking through this old shop, just thinking about all the work it has seen over the past 100 years.
If you have interest in one of the machines for sale send me an email and I’ll put you in contact with the shop owner. Abom1979@gmail.com
