Leaf Tap Handle


Recommended Posts

I was meaning to someday make a tap handle and the one that was on there finally broke so it was time. This was a chunk of 1.25" diameter low carbon steel ~3.5" long. At one time tried to make something from this piece by hand and discovered I couldn't do much to 1.25" bar with my hammer and anvil. The power hammer I constructed made it possible to turn this ugly chunk into this nice looking leaf. Yes, it is covered with hammer marks and my wife loves it. The leaf at the base actually looks like a hammer. Hit the tap too much and one could get bit hammered!! Spears.
