I Forge Iron

Steel selection - punches,drifts,chisels

Recommended Posts

Heavy equipment and truck shops often have second shifts, as the customers don't whant to take the equipment out of service for PM's
As to H13, I learned to forge the stuff in shoeing school. Very nerrow forgin range, to hot and you ruin it (true of all high carbon steels) and to cool you ruin it (starts to get hard and cracks) it's funky to heat treat, as to aneal it you heat it to red (to cool to forge) and to heat treat you heat it to yellow (upper end of forging) and let it cool my pritchel has been reforged so many tines I need to start over, it's too short for heavy shoes, as the radiant heat burns my hand.
