I Forge Iron

Knot making.

I love tying knots in steel, it takes a bit of practice and a lot of swearing but its not that hard really. This was the first thing I ever made at home after a 1 day beginners course. My forge was a propane and air torch and some fire bricks, my anvil was a sledge held in a vice and the knot doorknob came out pretty well.

and this is the sissy bar i've just made for my chopper its three lengths of 5mm round bar twisted up and then the knot tied in the end. I cocked up a bit with this though I should have either twisted the bars or tied the knot the opposite way because as I started to tighten the knot the bar started to untwist, you can see it in picture no4.
