    Honestly i watched your video without sound and my opinion is, that this is the coolest most easiest and understandable video ive watched yet.. Simple but great work and disign u made man. And very clean work! Great outcome. Better then most videos ive watched. And im just starting a keg forge.. Ive made a few regular forges but i wanted to switch to a keg for awhile and your video was the 1st thar came up.

    Once questi0on though - the anvil part was set at 45 degree. Is that because it needs to fold a little more than 90 to get 90?

    The isoangle measured drawings in the corner are awesome! I like the way you do the measuring as well. 1 mark, 1 cut for 2 parts that have to match. If you have explanations why you need 4 hinge loops instead of 1 besides it being stronger I would like to hear that.

    Nice work, but, you really made the simple job of sanding into hard work. Just glue some sandpaper to a large flat board and do the whole surface in one go. Or, get a belt sander or milling machine ideally. Holly : )

    Picked one up at Harbour Freight have never used, but it will make a great starting point for your fancy Idea. Every stage you performed looked spot on pro. as far as execution. Love that little table along with the hanger for the grinder. Must copy your hinge and clamp design. Really nice work.
