First Tong project...


Recommended Posts

Started making my first pair of tongs as my forge starts to come together. Took some 1/2" round stock from HD, and just winged it... Also forged a punch to go with them to make the holes for the pins...

Coming together pretty well, looking forward to finishing them up next week...

Hey, great work. Something very satisfying about making your own tools..almost as satisfying as making your own blades. Bet you don't stop at one.

Nice. Did you rivet them together? Can't quite see on the photos.
