I Forge Iron

First twisted bar experiment


Recommended Posts

I got about 20 feet of half inch wrought round bar to play with the other day.  After forging it square it’s pretty thin maybe a fat quarter inch.  I twisted a piece, forged it back square, folding it on itself welded and then forge welded it to a piece of 1080 as a test. I don’t have any ferric so this is overnight in vinegar. I used stainless steel hose clamps to hold the steel together for forge welding. Works really well they do not weld to the bar and come right off.
