Simple hold downs

6 posts in this topic

Should have made one of these a year ago. Super handy and very easy to make. The one in the Hardie is a little big and doesn't leave much room for work. Maybe a good excuse to buy a bigger anvil?

The big one is just a 3/4 piece of mild and the smaller one was an old 3' long bolt I found somewhere. The sparks coming off it were pretty complexed but I'm not totally sure what it was. Just forged them out and cold water quenched and they stayed plenty springy.

funny thing, I made a hold down tool similar-ish to the ones you made about 2 years ago. Only used them about 5 times! lol
