A Little Night Smithing

Kent's postman wants him to make a 12" long, 3" wide wedge. Kent has no idea why.

Sawing off a chunk of 3" square stock.


It took a long time to heat up the steel.

Kent starts with the hammering.

More hammering.

The ends were starting to curl over on each other, which is bad. So he started correcting it.

You can't really make out the look of sheer terror I felt with Kent swinging a 20 lb sledge at me.

Kent had welded a pipe on the end of the wedge chunk.

I wouldn't want to do this all day.

Still a long way to go.
