JHCC Posted July 31, 2016 Share Posted July 31, 2016 After a couple of frustrating months of not being able to fit smithing time into my schedule, I was finally able to get into the forge and finish up a pair of tongs I'd started a while back. There's a LOT about these that I'm not happy with: some parts are too thin, they don't open and close smoothly, there are all lot of asymmetries and irregularities, and there's one significant possible weak spot right where they grip. All in all, though, this was a great learning experience, and at least I have some tongs that should last long enough for making the next pair! N.B.: The reins are different lengths because one of them burned and broke off. But I did get to try out my touchmark: (And learn that I need to hit it harder!)
