chrisfrick Posted December 31, 2009 Share Posted December 31, 2009 Today I made my first forge weld!! It's nowhere near as hard as people make it out to be. I was making some scrolling tongs and needed to let them cool before I could forge the other end, so I decided to not waste fuel and try welding. Got the box of borax out, along with 2 12" sections of 1/4 and 5/16 1018,stuck them in the forge, waited a little bit to apply flux, let them heat until I saw a *small* amount of sparks, took it out and gently tapped them together. I figure it's about them same as soldering electronics-some preople get it, and some don't. -Chris Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
