This is a door knocker project I was asked to make. The block is tig welded to the back plate (a no frills deal I know), and there is a stand off (3/8" x 3/8" x 3/4") long welded to the back of the bottom part of the ring to keep from "pinching" your fingers.
Had a nice weekend and got some hours in on the forge. Amongst the projects: - fixed the parts for a messed up dragon doorknocker - forged some copper wings for it. (one part will take soldering) - toyed with forging aluminum for the first time - modified a hammer into a diagonal peen - just barely began a knife from a little chunk of file (got tired, didn't finish) - made an oogly nail header and a few nails - couple of new punches - did some hammer and hardy tool holders for my stump, - straightened and started grinding/filing a ballpeen tomahawk. (yeah, it's got some fuller marks to take out, but hey, it's a first.) - worked on my bulldog bottle openers, definitely better. They ain't perfect, but they're mine. Also spent some time with the umm, whatta ya call 'em....wife and kids? I'll can always sleep when I'm dead. How was your weekend?
