Round-jaw bolt tongs


Recommended Posts

Use the Cutting plate where it meets the anvil face as a V block if you haven't got a swage

Get the jaws hot, grip your bar sized for the bolt, place the clamped piece on the cutting plate abutting the face of the anvil with the opening of the jaws at 45 degrees so each side contacts a solid face and coax the edges of the jaws to grip the bar, keeping it in alignment, then finish off rolling them on the anvil face. .

Or you could use a block in the hardie hole to the same effect.
