I Forge Iron

1st fire project


Recommended Posts

So, I made a forge. Finally fired for the first time today to full heat. SO, now what? I need tongs. I had a pair of old fireplace tongs - scissor style with bad rivets - pretty chintzy. So, I separated the parts, flattened the ends out a bit, and rolled the noses over to get a bit of grab and bite. Voila!! 15 minutes later, a pair of serviceable tongs with a springy grip handle to them. Nothing pretty, nothing fancy, but perfectly useful.... kinda like me....
