After the first part learning how to swing a hammer on an anvil with some hot steel in between, I started with making my own blocking hammer.

Well assisting as I was not trusted with the air hammer.😏

after a few hours heating and forming, by hand on the anvil with the occasional assistance of the air hammer 🤫 I left it in the fire to fully come to rest. This is after glowing in the sand box during the cooling.

still a bit to bot to handle but no longer red hot.
today I am going to grind and polish before it can be hardened and tempered.

this is realy a fun excursion and you learn a lot in the process.

Getting serious in there, full on machine shop!
I didn't realize you had the space for all this equipment, nice work!
I have taken the 40 to pieces but have to finish the grinder and mill to create the space to build it up again.
press and polisher are upstairs now, looks like the blasting cabinet is going up too.
