Default Forge tools (rake also known as side poker)

Today while i was out cleaning up stuff I decided I would make something out of the 1/2" round stock I messed up on when I made a handle to move the trailer chock..

anyhow, here are the series of pictures.. Also made a few things for Shade but that's a surprise..

So the middle section was thinned down and then twisted, bent around and then the end was scarfed and made ready for the weld..

The new batch of flux works great..

Next the shaft was thinned out, the end flattened and bent 90D and then rounded out to form the tip..

Nice work Jennifer,
I would ask though ,how do you protect something like that from the atmosphere?
I tried a mix of bees wax lanoline grease and canubra wax on uncoated tools and all I can get is about 6weeks or so before it goes rusty.

Unprotected metalwork really suffers in my neck of the woods.

Mind you, my neck of the woods is adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef so its a mixture of salt laden air and coal terminal dust that attacks anything metal.

Very cool and just about a perfect tool for tending the fire in my little Jotul woodstove. I'll have to post a picture of the current stove tool.
