    Just what you need a extra knob for welding.

    Another batch of bells and railroad spike bookends are complete.

    There was another batch of 20 more bells made recently.

    I have been making these for several years. I guess I never posted a pic. They do well at the art shows.

    I presume you clean them up a bit prior to sales. Can’t immagine people wanting rusty old railroad spike book holders on their shelves.

    I do not clean them.
    I leave them rusty and as notavegetarian says, clear coat them.
    They have multiple coats of a gloss clear to protect the shelf and books.

    Here are some pics of those books ends and a cross, plus another style I made before.

    I sell about 8 sets a year.

    I think the bookends sticking out of the bases of the rails are neat!

    Cool stuff PSA.
    I make coat hooks from RR spikes but I blast and clear, granted I am not making the volume you are or I doubt I would blast.

    Thanks VW.

    People seem to like the rustic look where I am at so that makes it easy on me.

    Re: Scrap metal art or projects

    The questions on these bookends made me realize I had not made of this style in quite a while.

    The corner of one rail plate is really bent so I may not try to fix it.

    A gallery has an event where two or more artists are supposed to collaborate on a piece of work.

    I collaborated with a mixed media/fiber artist on this piece titled "Softening the Edges".

    Re: Scrap metal art or projects

    Seems unbalanced to me like the tallest curve should be 180 degrees wrapped to the left from the right vs how it is wrapped from the left to the right.

    I did not say that quite right. have the curve bend to the left starting from the left bend goes up into the right and swings back to the left. Hope that makes better sense.

    It does make sense, but I made a mistake on the spacing of the feet or base.

    Instead of a real triangle, it is kind of lopsided. So it was easy to tip over. Curving the way you mentioned would make it even easier to tip. I had to curve it this way to make it more stable.
