I Forge Iron

First ever made Tongs


Recommended Posts

Made your own tools!  Feels great, doesn't it!  Just even out those reins and you're golden.


I'm going to try dragon/pickup tongs next.  The bolt tongs seem  tricky by comparison.

Me too; I can't light my forge and forge a set for nearly as cheap as I find them. Of course it helps that I have a bunch and so can pass the expensive ones without a twitch.  My favorite knifemaking tongs was a set of small snub nosed shoeing tongs I bought for US$1.50 at a fleamarket in Columbus Ohio.
