Tong obsession

Recommended Posts

Oh I know you can take, maybe even enjoy a little funnin but there are folks all round the world reading and may not get the jokes through a translation program. 

Canadian bacon is more a slice of ham than what I think of as bacon too. However I've yet to run into ham I don't like, well some not so much but even then it's better than none. I do love my bacon, egg and cheese muffins or better croissant and Canadian bacon or a sausage patty are made for the job. Regular bacon just doesn't fit so well so I have to just make breakfast. Bacon, Mmmmmmmmm.

Ranchman...,

They eat Canadian bacon in Canada.

There,  it is called back bacon.

The more common pork belly derived bacon tastes different and is even more commonly consumed in the great white north.

Incidentally, each variety has a different taste and texture, form the other

 

( and in the good old U.S.A. )

Oh we got it Arkie,  I'm sure there are rasher bacon jokes on the way. 

Back to Canadian bacon jokes we were loining towards? 

OOh ooh, is that a rasher of bacon jokes in one sentence?!?

Certainly a bellyful.

Oooh, smoked that one John.

Pizza with anything and everything BUT anchovies or just rub a little olive oil on the dough and baked on a hot rock next to the fire. Mmmmmm.

The threads title pretty much said it all right..  They are really cool..  Which was easier to make.. Large ones or this tiny ones.. 

If you didn't leave a clue on the other thread.. This little secret could have gone on for years.

I’d have to say that the tiny ones were tougher. After you’ve built a few dozen full sized sets of tong they don’t present much of a challenge. These tiny ones were mainly done on a belt grinder and one little slip pretty much ruins them.

GI Joe blacksmith action figure

The WHAT!? 

Google google google. Wow, what happened to GI Joe being Army guys? There also a whole bunch of different outfits making "action figures" The first image I saw was a blacksmith shop diorama by a company that makes dioramas for action figures. Then there was an English company that makes figures with a smith at the anvil and a young boy with a file at a work bench. 

Good thing Deb doesn't like ordering things online for me or I'd have shelves of toys like this. 

Your miniature tools would put these to shame Ben. Thinking of outfitting a miniature smithy? Keep us in the loop please.

Thanks Frosty. I think I’ll make a mini smithy but it’s kind of low on the priority list. If I start making progress on it I’ll start a new thread.

Farrier style 3/8” fire tongs made from titanium. Starting stock was for each side was 4” of 1.125” round stock. They weigh right at 17.5oz and hold better than any other tongs I own.

I cheated on that pair. Titanium scale is a weird orangish brown that looks really ugly so I used a pretty liberal dose of wire wheel.
