I Forge Iron

my third set of tongs


Recommended Posts

Made from 1'x 3/8 flat stock.  Used my new chisel to split the halves per JLP recent video on tongs.  made the reins about 14 for the extra leverage and of course the jaws are different.  two tools to make this tool were my new chisel and my new monkey tool.  I will need to modify the jaws yet I think to allow easier entry into my forge opening.  I'll get there.

What I took away from this was that the technique where you split the tong halves from one piece of stock using a hot cut chisel, it takes much less time as the reins need only be refined as opposed to being fully drawn out.  If I had made a set of tongs with short jaws, they would have been done pretty quick.
