    Actually the guide with the bearing plastic takes all of the side to side motion and converts it to vertical motion. It assures that there is only vertical motion imparted to the tup and the tup guide.

    Good stuff.

    One question: wouldn't it be easier / less messy to break the big piece using a blunt chisel or a peen hammer, with the big part resting on its ends? The way ou do it now, you have nuggets flying everywhere.

    Haha

    Yes I know the feeling. That is why I forged my last 2 knives under the carport, with the anvil on the ground and me on bended knee.
    I wanted to do something fun instead of waiting until the floor is ready in my smithy.

    Just caught up with the thread, thanks for taking the time to document, photograph and video it for us. Almost humming Sinatra's My Way as I read through.

    LOL-Yep kinda the story of my life.

    Last weekend the 2hp Chinese motor showed it didn't have the right stuff and ended it tortured life.

    A new 5hp Baldor showed up ready for the challenge. Building a smoke hood for the forge this weekend but hope to get the new motor installed this week. Will require some frame modifications to fit.
