I also like the tool you initially use to forge in the bolsters. What's that called exactly? I'd like to do some research and maybe build one


I think it's called a blacksmith helper. You could do the same thing with a spring fuller. That's how I used to forge them before.

Show me a man who is called an expert by his peers

I was away from the forum for a many years so I’m slowly going thru the backlog of what has piled up since….Really good video Niels ,I especially got a laugh out of your patience comments at the end ….I also like the flatter with the tapered back you used in the power hammer…. I’m going to make myself one of those…. Thanks…..
