highwayman Posted February 25, 2010 Share Posted February 25, 2010 Hey Everyone, I am trying to figure out the best way to forge some brass knuckles for a motorcycle accessory. Has anyone ever done this before? I have a few ideas, but not sure which way is best. As you may have guessed already, I am a newbie. Here are the different ideas I have: 1) Cut a rough cut out of 1/4 or 3/8 plate with the oxy/acetylene torch and forge down from there. 2) Forge 4 small hoops and weld them together with a palm rest. I am not sure if I could hide the welds and don't think I could manage a good forge weld on all of them. 3) Punch and drift the finger holes and then forge around them. My concern here is that I will end up with uneven holes and too much mass in the wrong places. My other concern is what order to forge different sections in so that I can actually get the hammer in certain places. Any ideas or suggestions?? Thanks in Advance!
