I've been practicing making flat forgewelded rings out of 1"x1/4" stock, and the forgewelding part is easy. The hard part is actually making them round instead of oval or square. I've tried to round them out on my horn but it seems like I'm expending a lot of energy on a substandard result. Is there an easy way to make flat rings or do I just need to 'git gud'?
Can't claim this as my own, but I did hold it while the master welded it! Hands are forged out of a couple old wrenches, most of the body came from my old truck after I did lockers and a lift kit. All work was done by my 9 year is daughter. I did pull the wrenches out off the forge and hold them while she hammered, and prep the welds, everything else was all her. Now he stands in the flower bed keeping a watchful eye out for iron butterfly and such.
I saw a video on this a long time ago but i never had a welder to give it a try...until now. I finally got a good deal on a new mig welder and this was my very first thing i used the welder on. Awesome tool, dont know how i functioned without it for all this time. Anyways this was an attempt with 1/8" square stock i want to try again with some 1/4" round stock and use it to form the body of a candle stick. Just not sure how to make the candle cup yet but hey all in good time.
I will begin making my Power Hammer soon. I am designing everything right now. I am trying to avail using bolt on dies. This is what I came up with. Basically, a piece of (1.5''?) Hex Bar cut into quarters, and welded into a configuration which would make both male and female dovetails. The Male end will be two pieces of the hex, with a plate on top, to the plate the 4140 for the dies steel will be welded. 1) Hex Bar 2) Cut in Half 3)Cut in Quarters 4)Weld to plate 5) Gussets welded to strengthen the dovetails 6)Drawing of Female Half 7)Drawing of Male End Please let me know what you guys think, and concerns, if it will at all work, ect.
