Double thanks Jon for all you do/find.
There is a whole world of amazing stuff on iforge! I love that these folks share their work with everybody. The one I checked out in depth was the by monstermetal and his Insane-O-Flex. A HUGE table for bending and straightening massive structures. Where guys even find the scrap to make things like this blows my mind! And it doesn't make me feel so bad about how slow I am when he notes he's spent 40hrs so far on it. Compared to my several days fabricating a mod to my present project. I almost never see where people say how long it took them to make these amazing things.
It is inspiring and hopeful to see that people are still making things here and arts like forging, casting, etc are not completely lost. Because of the Internet we can all be virtual apprentices. I love it.
IForgeIron is a great one. It's interesting how certain sites have the best builds of certain tools, and they're very strong with homemade hammers, forges, and forging tools.
