  1. hofi hammer

  2. Hello dear friend. Have not heard anything from you in a long time, hope all is well with you. You can email me at [email protected]

  3. Dear Sir, I tred to buy ine of your hammers from pieh tools and as it was advertised as Hofi made and Hofi style, it would be one of yours. Imagine the surprise when it was a BLU hammer that arrived. I sent it back and lost 20% of the cost and postage each way. So much for makers marks and unclear advertising. But they told me thats what Blu told them to put on their website.

  7. BP1010 Forging a Point

    IForgeIron Blueprints Copyright 2002 - 2007 IFORGEIRON, All rights reserved. BP1010 Forging a Point by Uri Hofi I want to show my system of forging points, which is one of the elements that we often do. This one will be a short 2'' (square point on round steel) forged in one heat. The points. Put the steel (5/8'' round bar) on the far edge of the anvil hanging out 3/16-1/4'' in an angle that is half of the future angle of the point. If the point is 30 degrees the steel will be in 15 degrees . You forge with the hammer 90 degrees to the steel when the hammer is a 1/3 out (beyond the edge) of the edge of the anvil. You hammer 2-3 times on a side and rotate 90 degrees and hammer the other side again 2-3 times creating an off center neck. You pull the steel towards you until the end of the steel comes in one line with the edge of the anvil with the neck up you tilt the hammer out to almost 45 degrees and forge straight down while rotating the steel 90 degrees every 2-3 blows. The tilted hammer forging 90 degrees to the anvil with the edge of the hammer we will move the metal fast and then creating heat. Then you bring the hammer back to an angle that compliments the angle and planish. The finished point 2'' long on 5/8'' round steel. The technique is based and derived from the bp how to hold and guide the hammer''. The handle of the hammer must always be parallel to the anvil. Uri Hofi
  8. Coffee Table

    THE BASIC IDIA IS TO PUT THE TABLE APPART AND INSYOLE IN OTHER PLACE IF NEEDED. IN THE PHOTOS ONE DO NOT SEE THE FINISHED PRODUCE BUT THE QUESTION WAS ASKED AND HERE IS THE ANSWER. ON THE UPPER PART OF THE LEG A SMALL PLAT WITH A SLOT IS WELDED. ON THE WOODEN OLIVE PLAT TOP ON THE BOTTOM SIDE 3 GOOD WOOD SCREWS WITH A NICE HEAD ARE SCREWED IN TO A CERTAIN DEPTH ,THEN WHEN TUREN OVER THE WOODEN SCREWS HEAD IS GOING INTO THE SLOT AND THEN TURNING A BIT LIKE IN THE BAYONET SYSTEM ( like holding the lence in the camera ) THE TOP IS HOLDING THE WHOLE INSTLATION FRO FALLING APPART. NO NEED TO PUT A SCREW OR A PIN IN THE TENNON JOINT!!! HOPE THINGS ARE CLEAR FOR NOW HOFI
  9. Carving tools

    THE STEEL IS 1045. MOST OF MY CARVIUNG TOOLS ARE FORGED FROM. QUENCHED IN WATER AND DROWOUT TWICE TO YELLOW TO GET BINITE WHICH MAKES IT VERY HARD AND TOUGH AND A VERY GOOD AND LASTING CUTTING ADGE.BECAUSE THE GRAINE OF THE 1045 STEEL IS VERY SMALL .SOME TIMES IF SOME ONE WANTS A MORE PROFESIONAL TOOLS I FORGE THEM FROM W1-W2 OR O1 AND D2 WHICE ARE MORE COMPLICAT TO FORGE AND QUENCH. THE WOOD IN THIS CASE IS FROM ROOTS OF OAK TREE WHICH ARE VERY GOOD FOR MALET HITTING WHILE CARVING THE GOUGE AND ALLTHE TOOLS ARE FORGED WITH AIR AND HAND HAMMER , BELT AND MINI HAND GRINDER NO PROCESS PHOTOS YET ALL OF THE TOOLS THAT ARE IN THE THREAD ARE A BIT GOUGE WITH BIGGER RADUSE HOFI
