I Forge Iron

Fancy W1 Center Punch

Recommended Posts

I just finished this center punch for a guy in Cali. Forged from 3/4" W1 round stock. The forging was done on the power hammer that I finished building a few weeks ago. This punch was inspired by Seth Gould's work, who was in town last week at the "Center for Metal Arts". I got to see his work but did not have the time to speak with him.

Very nice!  How did you do the finer fullering work?

​I was wondering the same thing.That was the 1st thing that caught my eye as soon as I looked at it.

I'm thinking maybe custom dies in that profile for the power hammer, but it seems like a lot of work if it's only a one off item.

Read that guys? File the technique away for future use. ;)

It's a beautiful punch, I'd use it. Are you making a set? I'm thinking what I use is a center punch, alignment punch, pin punch, chisels and scribe. It'd look VERY good in a little custom index on my steel table at Demos.
