First attempt at Tongs


Recommended Posts

thanks guys! yeah the 3/4 rebar was a bit of a bear to draw out but not too bad as long as it was HOT(using technicusjoe's technique for drawing out his rr spike tongs helped a lot also). as for the blisters, i dont have any surprisingly enough, must be from swinging a framing hammer all summer

nice you only get better from here. Then get some 1045 and make tongs out of that is what the tong companies use


already bought some :D just waiting till i get my technique down a bit better first. started a pair of bolt tongs the other day but ran out of time to finish them before work
