I Forge Iron

fire rake - first project

Alan DuBoff

You start off with a 24" piece of 5/8" round stock, hammer the entire length into a 1/2" square stock, hammer 6 inches of the end round again, and form the eye handle on the horn of the anvil, then flatten out another 6 inches on the end, and form the shepherd's hook...of course cleaning up (or in my case trying to clean up) some of the transitions between square/round/flat stock. The idea is to get as close to 24" for the completed project, and I shamefully admit I was 2 inches short...22".
