  1. Who cares where the question was asked. The primary point is that the question WAS asked and WAS answered.
  2. My original response to this was deleted I just stated what I think is how the average smith goes about pricing their work. I guess the post police don't have a sense of humor That's what the smiley face was in response to.
  3. I used to make arrow head belt buckles rather frequently I used stainless steel and put the flaking texture in them cold with a cross peen.
  4. 500 lb Habermann on cast iron stand Used for striking anvil as it is mounted a little lower than usual This anvil was brought over and used by Habermann at the Kentucky conference for ABANA
  5. Really like the wrap around technique The welded ones not so much .
  6. The end is forged square A square hole is punched in the candle cup slightly smaller than the square on the stem ( I used the square tang on a rat tail file as the punch ) Then the candle cup is heated up and shrunk onto the stem
  7. Thanks Bigfootnampa The candle cup is a separate piece I am pretty far from being good More like approaching average I'd say
  8. A rather large candle holder About 24 inches tall with a 5 inch diameter round candle. Adjustable ( can be slid up or down to adjust the height )
  9. Here is a little Flux Spoon that I made to hang at the forge Approx. 10 inches long with a 3/4 X 1 inch shovel on the end with about 1/8 inch tall sides Thought it would be different than your everyday flux spoon
