Willeng Thany for your reply. Mine is a telma unit from a scania, the thing about it is I can not see any way to mount it.
I do not recommend brake drum forges to anyone. More convenient and effective is to throw the brake drum away and simply dig a hole in the ground with a 2 inch pipe angled into the side of the hole to supply air.
Anything would work better than a brake drum- a box filled with dirt or clay with a hollow depression for the fire, a flat surface made of stone or steel with a pile of cinders creating a depression for the fire.
Anything but a brake drum. Brake drums were meant for use on cars and trucks- not in a blacksmith's forge. Beginning to reformat and reduce redundant content, making it easier to read. Who recommends brake drum forges and why? Many blacksmith websites are run by and for hobby smiths posing as masters or experienced blacksmiths.
Most 'experienced' hobby smiths on the internet forums are unanimous in pushing the beginner to start with a brake drum forge. The brake drum people always claim to have years of experience using brake drum forges on a daily basis and making lots of money doing the best work using their brake drum forges.
Many of these hobby websites have a slick 'professional' web design appearance that causes the newbie to think he or she is getting the best advice. The brake drum masters don't have anywhere near as much experience as they claim using brake drum forges.
They get very little money for anything they produce with a brake drum forge and they produce very little ironwork anyway.
Take a look at photos of their work if they even provide any. The work done with a brake drum forge is always of the simplest design and lowest quality - usually 'S' hooks and railroad spike knives, lots and lots of knives.
So if the brake drum pusher actually has photos, look for photos of their favorite sander or grinder. The sanders and grinders take up a very prominent place in the knife grinder's shop.
Grinding and sanding equipment plays a huge role in the knife grinder's work, but not in the blacksmith's work. Also take a quick look at some of the date stamps on these peoples' posts, and it will be apparent that most of these people are on the internet day and night - not working in their shops as blacksmiths.
These wannabe experts are in fact, inexperienced and unskilled, and they are giving the newcomer advice on how to build the most important tool in the blacksmith's shop!
Do you see a problem here? Real working blacksmiths don't tell newcomers to build brake drum forges!
They tell the newbie to learn how the best forges work and to build something that functions much like the professional blacksmith's forge. The brake drum pushers refuse to use brake drums in their own forges. Despite their own advice urging beginners to use brake drum forges, the owners of those slick hobby smith websites, along with their forum participants, have chosen to use gas forges or coal forges with homemade or commercially made firepots.
Beginners should question this contradictory philosophy. Why do these 'experienced' smiths choose not to use brake drum forges themselves? No professional smith would ever use a brake drum forge - it is easier to build a high quality forge from wood, steel, brick, concrete, clay, dirt, stone, etc.
But now we discover that even the brake drum pushers refuse to use their own brake drum forges. If the brake drum forge is so great, then why do these alleged experts refuse to use them?Leveraging on our vast industrial experience, we offer an extensive gamut of Wire Rope Hoist.

If that's what a "dive bar" is, then I guess I am all for it, but "dive bar" gives a negative connotation to /5(39). Aug 28, · On small engines a large brake rotor with caliper works and I even thought of an oil cooled submerged rotor (like a wet clutch) but that seems to high maint. I have thought of using a large generator as a load device with a variable load panel but it seems that it .
Aug 20, · The max output on my little squirrel cage fan wont reach that volume with the fuels I've used, coal, coke, charcoal, hardwood. The only real difference I've seen is the consumption rate, hardwood burns up the fastest and coke gives me the longest burn time by volume.
Oct 17, · A squirrel-cage rotor is the rotating part used in the most common form of AC induction motor. It consists of a cylinder of steel with aluminum or copper conductors embedded in its surface. The new disc brake subvert traditional style: permits to remove original calipers and adds another two pads facing to inner surface of disc, which looks like a squirrel cage or a hollowed drum, the brake cylinder becomes two-way insides the disc and provides brake pressure for both inner pads to compress disc.
