I Forge Iron

Chrome or Stainless?

Recommended Posts

speaking of brass, I saw a video of a guy on youtube and is a member here who casted a brass hammer head. I want to do this because i need a hammer that i can use for punches and chisels etc. My only concern is heating the brass. Is there a way I can prevent poisoning?

why cant you use a steel hammer with your punches

if your only concern is heating up the metal you are not ready to do any casting

Have you got $1000 to spend on PPE?

how much experience do you have of casting?

do you have the correct type of crucible?

All good points.  Actually I use a stone mason's hammer.  They are intended for striking Hardened steel tools.  They have a short handle and a heavy square head.
