Making a Useful Tool from Broken Car Spring

Car springs are made from steel that would be quite suitable for making tools, they are also cheap or you can get them for free from your local car mechanic.

As I’m very new to blacksmithing this is the perfect price to pay for a usable “practice” material. This time I want to make a knife that is most often used for woodcarving, Better known as a hook knife This tool is very handy when carving wooden dishes, spoons. Thank you very much for watching!

Big thanks to all my patrons especially Sithis Michaelis and Larry Radcliffe!

Forging Basic Blacksmiths Tongs | Beginner Blacksmithing Project

This is my First blacksmithing project so if I can do it you can make them too! In total, I used about 300mm of 25mm x 6 mm mild steel flat bar for the forged tongs and about 800mm of the same material for the “stupid” simple ones. Which can be reused for forging new tongs.
