I Forge Iron


Recommended Posts

Thanks guys! 


I used bar stock for the arms, probably like 5/16 or something, and I used 16g sheet for the head. Originally, I tried to raise it in one piece, but I was working really fast, and I guess I probably had a rich flame (or is it lean? Whichever one has too much air) and I lost a lot to scale, so once I got it to shape, it was too thin to behave. So I just welded up a little can, ground off the welds and knocked in the corners. 


I ended up making a punch for the eyes. Not sure if I'll ever find another occasion to use my octopus eye punch.

Steel at forging heat will scale in open air regardless of the forge. Unless it was scaling IN the forge you just ran into normalness. Sheet seems to scale a lot faster but it cools so much faster it's in and out of the forge a lot more often.
