I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Cool video, John! Thanks for sharing. Couple questions:

- Starting stock size: was it 1" x 1" square?

- About the stoppers you use under the PH: are those made of mild steel r something else?

Thank you for the answers! Best wishes:

Gergely

Thanks everyone, the starting stock was 1 1/8" x 1 3/8" of annealed H13.  The kiss blocks are mild steel I machined to the correct thickness.  They have held up really well so far, so long as you stop forging after hitting them.

nice calculating stock to be used. I see that you use a cutting torch to heat small bends and rivets on some of your videos. careful you can get over oxidation in the process I like to use a brazing tip or a rose bud a little more forgiving
