I Forge Iron

Twisted Handles for demo I will be doing


Recommended Posts

Here's a few varieties of some handles I will be demonstrating in a couple weeks. They're fun to make. And I do forge weld the shafts to them(the spiral one is not forge welding to a shaft). The variations of these handles are numerous.. Up to one's imagination what you can come up with...

Hans.. The  middle one you're talking about, it's pretty easy to do, it's twisted angle iron and I believe this is three-quarter inch angle. When you twist angle iron the middle is hollow in this particular size of angle iron, 3/8" round stock fits fairly snug. Peen over the end of the 3/8 so it can slide off.. You could upset in front of the twist so it doesn't move forward..

now that you have pointed out that its angle iron i can totally see how it all fits together. it makes sense now that thee is a reason why there so few gaps between the wraps. thanks for the bit of knowledge in my ever expanding understanding of the second oldest profession.
