homemade hot cutoff tool!

Recommended Posts

One thing to think about: I suggest folks draw out the very bottom of a hardy tool until it's long enough to stick out the bottom of the hardy hole---in case it jams it makes it easier to pop out and the small size means you are not riveting in place if you have to hammer it out.

Now we all know that hardies are supposed to be easy fit and not jam; but after you have a number of old anvils you find that the varience in their hardy holes can be amazing and if you have students even colour coding tooling and anvil doesn't guarentee it won't happen...

What steel you use? Looks sort of like axle which would be a good choice.
