I Forge Iron

Going to forge a valve wheel

Recommended Posts

The blacksmiths journal did a few pages on this forging. If I remember correctly he showed it as a bar with a square hole punched in the middle of it to receive the valve stem. The bar was fullered either side of the hole and drawn out to a rectangular section. These parts were split and spread apart. A ring was bent and forge welded from round stock. He shows the center cross as being either forge welded or brazed to the outside ring. He actually shows several way of doing it because I think he covered it more than once. I remember thinking why would you want to do that but it looked like a good way to expand ones skills.
