Reforming forged tools?

Recommended Posts

Metal can be moved in amazing ways, but it's best to keep the finished design close to what you started with.  For example, while you could hammer it into a piece of 1/2" round stock, the time and energy burned on the project would far outweigh the cost of buying a length of new round stock.


If the adjustment nut is rusted tight, try soaking it in vinegar for a few days.

Very cool Postleg. You've shown some of these to us before haven't you?


Pipe wrenches would make fine carnosaurs, say alosaurous, T Rex, raptors, etc. Big jaws, gnarley teeth, claws and it's . . . Oooh scary!


Frosty The Lucky.
