junker Posted March 27, 2010 Share Posted March 27, 2010 so im trying to forge some ball bearings flat so that i can weld them together for knives. my problem is holding them to heat for forgewelding. i figured out to hold them in they fire, for flattening with a sacraficial pair of tongs and just dealing with heating up both the tongs and the bearing. the problem is holding them to heat for welding, the bearing sticks to the tong and i have to weld the bearings together/ to the tongs and then i have to breakthem off the tongs and the weld doesn't come out right because i can't hit it hard enough or completely ruin the tongs. anybody have any ideas? im had to just stop forging i was getting so mad at it Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
