I Forge Iron

Whipping the new shop into shape.

Recommended Posts

I am having a good time now getting the new shop into shape. One idea I had seems to work well and is SO simple.

I have been forging big hooks to go on the wall. I punch holes through them to take a fixing bolt- what I would call a rawl bolt the expanding ones which the Chinese actually make very well. So I had the idea why use an anchor bolt when, for the same amount of effort I can use a hook? So I have my forged hook held in place by a hook. For example I have one of my hooks with my chain hoist hanging on it, the smaller hook which anchors that to the wall supports the endless chain.

Only took me 54 years to come up with that idea!
