divermike Posted December 4, 2009 Share Posted December 4, 2009 While cruising the net yesterday, I came across this project on one of the other state assoc, sites, I believe it gave credit to Tom Latane for this one, you can find it if you google "Miners Candle spike" I think. In any event this took about 2 hours, which is what Tom said his first one took, and that made me feel great, cause he is wayyyyy better than me, but none the less, I had a lot of fun. I recommend it for beginner smiths, it has several techniques that can give you experience. 1. 10 inches of 1/4" X 3/4" cut up the middle 4.5 inches on one end. 2. Shoulder at 2" from end and 1/2" from split. 3. Draw out in between shoulders to aprox 1/4". 4. Flatten candle cup portion, keep bottom flush, (I blew it here) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
