I Forge Iron

Little blacksmith's double calipers


Recommended Posts

I haven't been in the forge much for the past several months (teaching taking all my time), but I just started a large project, a 15th century chamber clock.  More on that later when I get further into it.  Today I decided to make a set of double calipers for it.  It's going to involve a lot of forging down flat stock in relatively small sizes (the gears are made from 3/16"x5/8"), and rather than using a set of small calipers and a 6" ruler, as I had been, this would be much easier.  Nothing fancy, made from a couple pieces out of the scrap pile, but they are smaller than is usual.
