    Ok Thanks! Yeah thats his name , thats a good video. Could a person do it with a Gulitone tool with a Treadle hammer? When I get the time I Plan on making the holder out of a spare chunck of plate.

    Andy, WHich dies did you use to make that rounding hammer that was fullered you showed me ? The "serve" side on combo dies or another set of dies? Also was watching a video with a fellow ( cant remeber his name) that was at big blu shop and he demoed making one of those coal forge metal holders out of a picece of plate and I was wondering about what measurements to start with.
