I am sure that if you have been doing any blacksmithing you have
figured out that Tongs
are a vital tool that you may use everyday.
When people start out they often struggle to make
their first pair of tongs. They are not sure of the steps or even some
times not sure how the finished product should look.
To make things even more difficult there is a whole
range of styles that are on the market.
Often people starting out ask:
Ebook I have covered all these questions and many more. Tongs are a
great project but can be challenging when you start out. Remember
part of the beauty with being a blacksmith is making your own tools.
Shape Should I Make My First Pair of Tongs?
am Left Handed. Does that make a difference?
shape jaws are best?
long should my handles be?
is the fastest way to make tongs since I need them right now?
There is always a joy when I can make an useful tool for very little
money and have it in really just a few minutes instead of waiting for
shipping, or paying duty or taxes on purchased items.
By building your own tongs you can get exactly the size, weight, and
shape that you are looking for.
You will also have no fear of re-working them for different tasks. I
will regularily modify the jaw shape or sizing on a pair tongs if that
fits the job.
What's Actually in the Ebook?
The actual ebook part is 33 pages long and covers:
There is also an Appendix that is an extra 69 pages long packed with close up

specific jaw types.
