Very helpful.   I need more tools. I appreciate you forging this vs stock removal.

Thank you for the well done video I enjoyed it. I like the first dies you use for the back side of the bolster looks like they get you off to a good start.

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.
