K. Bryan Morgan Posted June 8, 2010 Share Posted June 8, 2010 I haven't posted for a little bit. Been kinda busy. But I have been forging . I made a trammel and a J hook. I got an order for four J hooks. I've made them before, but not with an arrowhead finial before. So I started with some 3/8th mild got the arrow head portion upset somewhat to make it larger and then isolated what I wanted to make the arrowhead part with.. It didn't work out so good... I broke one off hammering it too cold. Knew better too.. but it will make a nice leaf someday. And the other one .. eh..just not thrilled with it...There are some parts of it I like.. the twist came out nice I think, and the hook and finial scroll for that looks nice too.. I did a flat taper then rolled it. On the trammel, I did what seemed an easy way to do it. did a flat taper on one side and made the hook out of that for the hanger with a scroll and punched the hole for the angle. Then the other holes. Made the hook that you hang the pot off of and figured out pretty quick I had the angle for the part that goes through the holes to long. Got that fixed and I'm quite happy with it. First one I made and I like it. Enjoy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
