Michael Cochran Posted June 25, 2016 Share Posted June 25, 2016 I started a new job yesterday working for a chain link fence manufacturer. My job requires me to use a tool to remove one piece of wire every so often to start a new roll. All the guys in the department have different tools they use and all are made from whatever scrap/junk they found laying around but I want something uniquely me, something from my forge. Basically the tools are all the same, some kind of handle and something on the end you can hook the wire in and rotates as you pull the wire from the roll. I want something that I can also clip or hook to my belt loop so that I don't drop it or it 'walk off' when my back is turned. The basic idea is something similar to the picture below and I have an idea how to do most of the forging I want to do but I'm not sure how to do the spinning part. I know how to make the ring and I can drill the hole to attach it to the handle portion but how would I forge the rivet head inside the ring?
