Two new center punches made of mystery tool steel. Water quenched did the trick as they are super tough.

This is another part of the Biltmore project (the big archway thing). We have to forge 128 complete shapes for 2 panels that will be mounted on the sides of that archway. That means 512 forged C shapes and 512 of the “spears”. That’s a lot of repetitive forging…. They are all silicone bronze too, which is a bit trickier to deal with than mild steel. Its been a lot of fun, and its going to look AMAZING when its done, but making the same shapes and doing the exact same motions for 2 weeks is not easy, it really makes my brain all weird.

Added some deadman sliding arms to the forge. I should have done this from the get go.

 Got tired of fishing dropped pieces out of the quench bucket so I made these tongs that can reach to the bottom of the barrel.
