I Forge Iron

BBQ Fork

Recommended Posts

I did some last minute forging for a Christmas present. I used 5 inches of 3/4 square stock, drew it out on the powerhammer, forged the handle out with a hook to hang it on. It ended up at around 22 inches in length. Wish I had more time to make a few more, hard to decide who to give it to.

Thanks, the drawing out was done on a 75 lb powerhammer with combo dies, I rough forge on the drawing dies them smooth it out on the flat die. I just poured new bearings on the hammer and still just getting them run in good. The hammer hits much harder now and it has amazing control. You have to keep the taper even as you go and square or it gets all out of whack in a hurry then it is hard to correct.

I also forged a couple of nails, 3 1/2 inches of 1 1/2 inch round stock gave me 16 3/4 inch nail. I plan on making a few more of these and take them to the spring conference for team striking like Tom Clark used to do
