I was looking for my own porn thread and found this.

In to see pics of "tools". Phone Post 3.0

That's the center punch I forged out a little while back. Just a scrap piece of 80CrV2. Forged a full taper, chamfered the corners, added a decorative twist and polished the point a bit. Then I brought up to critical, took it two shades above and held it for about 5 minutes before quenching in a warm oil blend. Forge tempered it to just barely a light straw color and repolished the point. Done and done.

This ugly bastard has already paid for itself and it'll do so for hundreds of years. From useless scrap to a tool that'll service my great grandkids. I love that type of stuff.

I'd be happy to. Let me have a look around the shop and see what I've got lying around in the steel pile. I'm pretty sure I've got some more 80CrV2 sized just about the same but I'll have to double check. That stuff is tougher than nails. For comparison, 5160 spring steel is widely considered one of the most durable steels out there... hence it being used for leaf springs on damn near every big rig you've ever seen. 80CrV2 is basically 5160 on steroids.



Price wise, I'm thinking around 30USD.

And here's a campfire poker I made yesterday while the forge was still hot from knives. Very simple, but very useful. A couple of decorative twists and dual pokers at the end.

I like it, but I ain't quttin my day job!

Not so much a tool as a decorative item, but here's a leaf-shaped hook I made a couple of weeks back for my dad to use with his garden hose. This was fresh out the forge. I'll see if I can get a pic of it all cleaned up.

you make me wish for more time at the fire my friend Phone Post 3.0
