Just finished these off... shame I have no gas for my forge. Was keen to give these a try. They are bolted together right now but once I can light the forge I'll use the bolt as a rivet. 

 

Any feed back?

Chris, that's a nice concept.  Looks as if it'd handle most any width tang, unlike box jaw tongs that eventually have their limit.  I like the idea.

Definitely self adjusting.  That's a terrific design.

Very nice! I saw James Gibson make a set of tongs based on the same idea as yours but a little different shape. This was at bowie's hammer in. James said he saw a swedish guy make some on youtube like them. I looked for it on  youtube but never did find it.

Thanks all. The slot is welded, the top arm tong is super rough forged and generally just fabricobbled together 

 

The bottom tong will accept 6mm wide stock. 

 

Cheers all.

I'd like to see someone with actual skill make a set. Mine are just fabricobbled together. 

 

If you lads make a set be sure to post them so I can see?

Fabricobbled......... Interesting term.  I'm going to add that to my lexicon.  It should fall just in front of finitiob. :lol:

Fabricobbled together?  Hardly.  Those are a well thought out and fabricated (or cobbled) tool.
