Excellent Ken, very nice read and well deserved praise. Wish we lived closer.
very nice. Congrats .... it's good to get a bit of recognition once in a while.
quite an informative piece, btw
Brilliant. Have to respect someone that comes up with ideas - and then actually DOES THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I believe it was Linus Pauling (two time Nobel Prize Winner) who said 'The way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas and then throw out the bad ones.' My addition to that is sometimes a bad idea in one situation is a good idea in another.
Selling blacksmithing-related items on eBay is something which is working for me at the moment. Does it have legs? Really can't say. Right now I don't have any competition to speak of. If a couple of sellers come on doing virtually the same thing I'm doing a price war would likely drive most of us out.
I somewhat have built-in advantages of my overhead is low, my equipment has largely paid for itself (and would still have a resale value) and it is supplemental income to me. Would be hard to drive me out of the market.
As mentioned in the article I have been making and/or selling blacksmithing-related items for a long time (say 20 years). However, my market was EXTREMELY limited until eBay came along.
I enjoyed it very much. Nice pictures too .....
Ken , my late father was a Chemistry professor turned farmer and he spoke of your Linus Pauling often, LOL.
So many of us have good ideas - so few IMPLEMENT them!!
Good stuff Ken, will pass on the info to a couple of amatuer blacksmiths nearby. As a kid we rigged a field expediant bellows to repair a tractor part. Got it cherry red and beat it back into position then hammered it a bit as it cooled. Worked for years.
