I Forge Iron

Flattening hammer (easy way)

Nice work! And if it does the job every thing is fine.

I made my flatter the "blacksmiths way", that means forging down a large piece of steel at one end, putting it into the swage plate and smacking the xxxx out of it with a sledge hammer. Works fine too and took me less than 1,5h, punching the handle hole included.
