  1. Hello there everyone a question ive done my fair bit of looking on the web and literally calling every warehouse around where i live for high carbon and/or tool steel does anyone on here have a go to site where they stock up on metal im currently doing stock removal but my goal is to blacksmith so either answer will work great! Thanks guys this community rocks!
  2. I need to forge a root cutting tine for my backhoe. In researching tool steel I was a little overwhelmed, ok, a lot overwhelmed. What I found was V3 steel. Is there a better choice. I am not sure what will be the chief attribute needed for an implement like this. I have to remove hardwoods and pine trees roots. Thank you in advance. Regards
  3. Hey gang, I've been doing some reading about how well A2 performs as a steel for wood working tools. I found a good price on some A2 in the size I want for making wood chisels of various sizes. However, some places I'm reading for heat treat say you absolutely have to have heat treat foil and some say you do not for air hardening. Anyone here have any thoughts or experiences with it?
  4. I was given a 0.5x1x14" piece of O1 to play with. Up til now I have only used leaf spring steel (with good results). Any pointers before I start swinging? Thanks guys! Btw I'm using a 3lb cross peen hammer on a 195lb anvil.
  5. forged hardie from axle for 3/4" hardie hole
  6. Forged this knife from a concrete drill bit. It's quite the ugly blade. It was intended to be a work knife for my work bench, but then I ended up playing with the handle... and I like it! If you find yourself wondering why the blade is so crude looking, that's why. I do think I tempered it a bit soft, though. That was before the tempering knowledge that I have now. Handle is red oak with a Tru Oil Gun stock finish. I gave it the hair removal test... it passed. The sheathe was one of the knife kits from Tandy bit I did the tooling and the staining. I prefer to do my sheathes from scratch, but I
  7. Recently, my passion for woodworking has been rekindled. I spent a few years building and installing high-end custom cabinetry and shutters several years back, before pursuing my current career as a paramedic. Paramedicine is typically characterized by long, loooooooooong hours (often more than 100 hours/week) and pitifully low wages (most of the "life-savers" who respond to your emergencies make a lower hourly wage less than that of a teenager working at In-n-Out Burger....hence the 100+ hours/week) and so after 8 years I have found myself in dire need of a hobby. While much of my previous
  8. Hey Guys, just me showing one possibility to make a hammer eye punch. I used C60 tool steel in 20mm round stock: Here are the different steps: 1. forge the round bar to an octagonal shape 2. create a teardrop shape about 1 inch below the top 3. create a light taper that starts of at the end of the teardrop and gets thicker for about 2 - 3 inches 4. then cut off additional 4 inches and create a light taper that gets thinner to the tip 5. taper about 1 - 2 inches at the tip thinner than the rest 6. planish and make everything nice and straight 7. dress the striking face 8
  9. Hey Fellows! Me finishing and testing the first draw knife I forged yet. It is handforged from C60 (AKA 1060) tool steel, water hardened and gradually tempered from the spine. Yet it services me well :-). http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=qVj32un5BG0 Yours - Daniel
