Sure thing:Nice! Photo of your foging setup?
Yeah, I know that I'm going to be making several other pairs for various uses. These were mainly to get my feet wet and hopefully be able to hold some short 3/16 1095 I bought to make my first blade, but I've already been thinking of designs that would be better suited for certain types of stock.Images dont show up when i check the link. Cool tongs. Ive been debating making some. I want some grooved jaws to hold stock more effectively. I may just buy the closest looking one then modify them.
Thanks. A big part of the fun in it for me is making the tools. After all, this all started with me wanting to make some kitchen tools. Planning to make my own 2x72 belt grinder, ribbon burner forge, hydraulic press, and power hammer along with various little tools, hammers, etc.High marks for making you own tongs Noah. Really nice job.
I used to have some old books relating to railroad operations, and it seems as though every tool they needed was made by in-house smiths.
I was always very impressed by that.
