I Forge Iron

What can I do with three 8# sledge hammer heads?

Guess you could take a little weight off one of them making it a cross pein and a straight pein for drawing out bigger bits of steel.

Or you could make a really portable anvil out of it, maybe something specifically for arrow smithing. 

Or just have a few spares unless you just treat the heads like stock and make something totally different.

Just a few random ideas

You could forge one end down to fit into the hardy hole. Cut the thing in half so that the eye forms a semicircle and either grind or forge the eye into a swage. I have done something similar to this and it makes a dandy swage. This way you get 2 swages from one head.
