Wolf's Den Armoury Posted November 26, 2009 Share Posted November 26, 2009 I was screwing around the other day and decided to give a try at forge welding a "folded onto itself" billet. Folded it in half four times, and I *think* I got it to forge welding heat, brought it out of the fire (coal forge), put in on the anvil, and (as advised a few times in several places) tapped the billet lightly with the hammer. Question is (and yes, this might be a *really* stupid question).... How do I *know* this piece is actually welded? there seems to be an area between the folds where there is a "filled section", but its recessed about 1/16" from the edge, leaving the individual folds obviously visible. So basically, I really don't know for certain if this is a successful forge weld or not. :confused: Thanks for the help, David Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
