I Forge Iron

I saw a video on this a long time ago but i never had a welder to give it a try...until now. I finally got a good deal on a new mig welder and this was my very first thing i used the welder on. Awesome tool, dont know how i functioned without it for all this time. Anyways this was an attempt with 1/8" square stock i want to try again with some 1/4" round stock and use it to form the body of a candle stick. Just not sure how to make the candle cup yet but hey all in good time.

Use thin tin to make a circle. Leave a tab on the metal to fold over and make the bottom of the cup.

Use EMT (3/4 inch if I remember correctly) and remove the galvanized with vinegar. Then form the flare on the horn and form the bottom of the cup by fullering the metal down. Cut and heat and you can then drive the base into the cup to hide it.
