I Forge Iron

Tool ID


Recommended Posts

Picked up at an estate sale this weekend, no other smithing tools save a couple of big coil springs. My first thought was 'creasing tool', the end seems abused, skates the file right off.

For forging a decorative groove on hot metal, maybe collars?

Thank you,

Yeah, barrel tool from driving hoops was my first thought, but I've not seen one of those handled like a set tool. Tool is too hard to file without annealing. Next time I fire up the forge I'll anneal it, file it back into shape and give it a shot. Double decorative lines, have to think about where on my work that would go.
