I Forge Iron

First time playing with Silicon Bronze


Recommended Posts

The survey group at the company I'm now working for is moving.  As you do, they are trying to trim down on their stock before the move -and one of them remembered that I mentioned enjoying smithing.  They had about 10 of these bronze 3.5" domed survey markers that they thought were brass and were kind enough to donate them to the cause instead of tossing them.  Decided to try them out, so cut one up and putzed around with the pieces a bit.  Forged quite easily, punching and drifting were fine, and even the working range wasn't too bad.  Not particularly good product, I was still trying to find my way around the material.  Definitely want to do more of this.
