    Re: Blacksmithing and forging

    I do a lot of blacksmithing with my iron art work. I was commissioned to make these shelf brackets.

    The main straps are 1 1/2 x 1/4 and the support curves are 1 x 1/4. The main straps are 14 inches long on each leg. I forge broke the edges and forged the curve for each. I drilled the holes, no points for punching the holes. I blind plug welded the rivets and then hot textured them.

    The whole works was hot waxed and then burnished with a rag.

    Re: Blacksmithing and forging

    Feel free anyone to post links to any other smithing related threads I may have missed. I don't have to be the only one to add links to this thread. I'm sure there are a ton of other ones, either smithing projects you or others have done, or anvil/blacksmithing tool related threads on here I haven't dug up yet. Every so often I stumble upon another one and try to add it. I'd like to make this as comprehensive as possible since the search function on this site sucks big time.

    How DO they put faces on anvils?

    Here's one example.

    Re: Blacksmithing and forging

    here's my first "for regular use" forging project. but in reality most was welded. only the "dogs" were forged. For having 0 real training I'd say it didn't turn out to bad. Just needs to be functional right?

    24" Deep x 36" wide. Final height is yet to be determined, as the fire place it is going into doesn't exactly have a level floor. Made with 3/8"x2" flat stock.

    There are no problems. There are only solutions. It's your duty to determine the right one.

    Interesting... my first approach would have been to reshape the grinding tip on the grinder. Apparently breathing any grinding dust from that process would not be a good thing.

    DIY Propane Forge, powered via a Hybrid JetBurner Torch. The tech literature on the T-Rex style Mach burners looks very hot.

    Re: Blacksmithing and forging

    Here's the Peter Wright anvil I acquired this summer. Finally got around to finding a block of oak to mount it. The stump is tapered on the bottom so that I can pick it up with my forks.

    The rivets in the band are just for decor.

    Lis2323, nice ! I like the taper to use that mechanical stuff to lift where you only need one finger to move it,

    Great hold down setup too !
