  1. I guess a timely question would be what type of pelt is he going to use it on ?
  2. I like it Says it all No translation needed
  3. I use various sizes to lightly make impressions around a hole when I am hot riveting . The rivet fills the impression that the star drill made and it prevents the rivet from spinning around
  4. Ted Are those dots on the two hooks brass inserts for decorative purposes or for some other function
  5. Have done those on the head of a railroad spike before. When finished forging just cut off to desired length and drill and tap for drawer pulls.
  6. You can also get acme threaded rod and sleeves from Mcmaster carr
  7. Who cares where the question was asked. The primary point is that the question WAS asked and WAS answered.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Really like the wrap around technique The welded ones not so much .
  12. 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
  13. Thanks Bigfootnampa The candle cup is a separate piece I am pretty far from being good More like approaching average I'd say
