The 1.25” hole in a 1” bar went smooth. I need to upset more material (make it fatter) on this next one as it got a little wasp waist on the profile. #blacksmith #handmade (at rorymay.com)

CNC Plasma Cut some scroll bending wrenches out of ½” plate for the new forging shop. Just got done rounding the sharp edges, and will be throwing them in the forge for a minute and quenching them to make em a lil more rigid.  #RDMIRONWORKS #TORCHMATE #CNCPLASMA #PLASMACUTS #CUSTOM #DECORATIVEIRONWORK #SCROLLWORK #HANDMADE #WRENCH #BLACKSMITH #MADEINTHEUSA

Acquiring some hammers for myself. Hard to hang on to things when I sell practically everything I make. The two closest are Brent Bailey and Brian Brazeal the rest are mine. I have more but they go on the less used hammer rack. #blacksmithing #forging #tools

It begins! The new Speedglas helmet is much nicer than my previous helmet. Nice and clear now but I’m going to put it through it’s paces with this job. We’ll see how it holds up.

Today was all about this massive carving gouge here.. 
The steel is stamped “JAMES CAM SHEFFIELD” on the inside, and “CAST STEEL” on the outside. 
James Cam was a tool steel manufacturer from 1781 - 1838. “Cast steel” from Sheffield was among the very best steels from that era, and it still holds true today.
I acquired the rusted gouge missing the handle and in pretty bad over-all shape. I cleaned it up, reground the bevel to 20°, and fitted a proper american hickory handle with leather washers. The bevel was then honed to a shaving sharp edge on diamond plates. 
I’ve never even seen a reference to a gouge this large, it is an exceedingly rare piece of woodworking history. 
With only 200+/- years behind this tool, it’s amazing to think of the projects that it has helped complete… and the hundreds of years of future life that still remain…
