An A for effort. B- for spelling.
I'd give it a C, because the work is not shown, but it looks like a B
for final, because I was overruled.
Somewhat lacking in composition, but use of the shift key, duly noted!
I apologize for the drivel...my newsgroup server went kaput and I was trying
to remedy it.
. . . .As long as I'm here, I really need an easy recipe for a patina that
will keep the rust from eating up the small things I am making, to learn the
. . . .And I need to know how to temper a Hardy hot cut made of OCS.
. . . .And I need to know how to re-temper OCS (I'm making a flat strap
(7/8" by 1/8+") loop spring for a 'Vee' upper and lower swage device, (to
form the tong noses).
I took the advise and got a lighter hammer. Now after a few days of beating
I am getting the tong handles (my first attemt at making tongs) nearly
rounded and extended. And I made the rivet device as directed here.
I made some of those tripple leaf things...flur delees(sp). I had to cool
the unheated end in water so I could hold them with my hand. They just
jumped out of the plain flat nosed tongs I have, and were dangerous. It
really made for a lot of extra heats. So tongs are a big item right now. I
may make up half a dozen and take them to my instructor and used his 25#
Little Giant to do the SOR job.
. . . .Please have some patience with me. I'm 70, and after a lifetime of
cold iron hammering, I'm enjoying the propane forge. It's almost like
turning off and on a light switch.
. . .thanks to 1 & all for the help.
