Forge a knife blade from a car spring

Forge a knife blade from a car spring I helped my friend to change springs on his car, so I kept the broken spring as forging material. The carbon content of spring steel is aroundd 0.6 to 0.8% which works well for hardening - so lets forge a knife! I cut out a ~10cm long piece from the car spring. I use the induction heater to straight it out and flatten it a little. cover

Forge a hoof scratch

Forge a hoof scratch In this project I made a hoof scratch as a gift to a friend - made out of a horse shoe of course. I do have a few different forges depending on what to forge. The induction forge is great for thick and straight materials such like hammer heads and tongs. One of the greatest benefit is that there is only 30s startup time as it requires no preparations at all. cover
