Default Doing a little forging...

I have been working on a new Damascus pattern and also had a chance to forge out a few blades from ball and roller bearings. The Damascus is 75 layers of 1095 and 15n20. It was a rewarding day...

How fast will that anvil run when you put her in gear? (had t ask never seen one with a sprocket on the side)
Nice blades, gotta love it when they pile up off the end of the anvil. Now the not so fun begins.

I had a bucket full of Timekin (sp) roller bearings about that size that turned out to be mush inside - case hardened prob. What brand is that one on the anvil?
