I Forge Iron

Cool cut off hardy added to collection

Recommended Posts

A friend has a barn full of items he has acquired at auctions and barn sales over the last couple of decades. He is going through boxes and knows I am a blacksmith. Whenever he finds something blacksmith related he gives me a call. Well he called two nights ago and I was able to get to his barn today. He reached in an old box and pulled this out.








The shank is 1 1/4" square. It is 8" tall and weights 5lbs. It is definately hand made with no markings. I have never seen a hardy with decoration around the base like this.  Anyone else seen one like this? The pictures don't do it justice it is pretty impressive in person.

either axle spline or PTO shaft. also could be a "jack" shaft from a transmission. sure is neat seeing something  somebody made and have a slight clue as to what is was made from. gets the ideas and posibilities rolling in your head
