Gerald Boggs Posted January 25, 2012 Share Posted January 25, 2012 Mark Aspery Hammer Challenge OK, it's not Mark's challenge, it's mine. Over the years, I've heard/read no end of opinions on hammers and the techniques to use them. This is your chance to show the truth. This is a photo of a 1 1/4 inch piece of A36. The taper was done in one heat. Over the years, I've watched Mark do this many times. Can you? This particular one, was done on a 100 lb anvil using a Brent Bailey 2.75 lb hammer. No tricks, just good, solid hammering technique. I freely confess, I've not yet made it. The best I can do, is two heats, but I'm getting close.
