    Well, he won't have to worry about it being too light. Amazing work for what he is dealing with. I think I would have run out of talent before the first video ended.

    Wow, proof that if you really want a mill you can have one.

    Two thing stood out here:

    The first question that comes to mind is who makes that tap holder? I've never seen anything like it. If it is a home made or DIY solution maybe somebody has the plans for it.

    The second thing that comes to mind is belt tension, I wonder what his solution there will be.


    In any event I hope Steelcraft continues to post as I'm always fascinated by these sorts of builds.

    Nice job. A lot of hours being invested there.

    And it's not even a half way..

    Main problem is lack of steel in Poland, even price is almost 4 time bigger. Supplyers don't want to sell smaller sheets than 2 x 6 [m], large companies have priority.
    The junkyard is my only source of steel.

    Next video probably in december

    The pain! I feel you. Here even the scrap yards are charging top dollar and where I live not a lot of heavy stuff come through as most goes direct to the mill.
