I Forge Iron

S-7 Punches!

Recommended Posts

Being in attendance at yesterday's NCABANA meeting, I was able to purchase these punches and a few dies. These are from pill pressing machines for big Pharma (I think that's what I was told.). Boxes and boxes of these were up for sale, and by the looks of it, it was worth it! With an RC hardness of 60, I was told these were to be formed to fit different needs using a power hammer only! Either way, awesome nab!

Funny when I first got some of those several years ago I was told they were S-1 Mine forged easily and I already had a set of tongs that hold the neck perfectly. I forged a slitter from one that I've used my screwpress to drive through 1" high carbon sq stock in *1* heat! I also use one of the round ones with a flat end for punching bottle caps for rasptle snake tails. I just use a chunk of end grain to punch into.
