    Hammer handle ?'s

    The simplest way would use one of the hammer handles I already have but thanks for the suggestions I appreciate it.

    Hammer handle ?'s

    Thank you! I will read through it. After digging through my box of hammer handles I found this. I think I can make this work with minimal time. I wonder what it was made for. Any ideas?

    Hammer handle ?'s

    I will dig through the handles I have and see what I can come up with. Thank you for the help and suggestions. I would like to see the thread you talk about. If anyone could find it I would greatly appreciate it.

    Hammer handle ?'s

    I have a box of hammer handles. I was thinking there was a handle out there that was already set up for a round eye.

    Hammer handle ?'s

    I was really hoping to just buy a handle. I work a lot and what spare time I have I wanna be hammering instead of making a handle. I do have access to some black locust but like I said I really wanna just buy one. If I was left to have to make a handle it would just sit around and I would never get to it

    I found this hammer in a box of garage stuff my friend gave me and I need to find a handle for it. Would anyone know where I could get a handle like this?

    First forge weld/Fire poker attempt

    If your NOT running a reducing atmosphere you are going to want to flux before a yellow heat because scale will have already formed between the pieces you are trying to weld.
  9. I'm in the same predicament....only my block of steel is 3000#.
  10. How much air supply do you have at you disposal? With an anvil that heavy you could easily go with a little bigger cylinder and tup. But a bigger cylinder means you need more air. Just a thought I figured I would throw out there.

    There is 2 forman's....they look like twins. Look at the guy swinging the little ball peen hammer at the giant bracket that was mentioned. Look between his head and the hammer.
