Hey Gary while watching this video you were filing I saw a small hammer hanging on the wall it has a straight pein and a cross pein what is the proper name and what is it used for I have one like it but have no idea what it is for thanks have a good day I love your videos
Great stuff, thanks
Like the demonstration. Nice tongs
Gary, I realize this is an old video, but I like going back and reviewing old videos...sometimes I catch things I miss first time around.Question...what is the purpose of the dimple on farrier's tongs?
Hi Gary since you asked for a link in the video. Here is the link to my own video on how to make the tongs you mentioned. They are not the neatest but functional.
Hi I'm just a beginner and I am about to make a set of these. Why do most guys use square stock as opposed to round stock?
Thanks for the video. I enjoy them.
Hi Gary, I'm going to make.. more likely try to make... my first set of tongs tomorrow. I have a question about the filing you do. I've seen other videos where the smith holds the stock at a 45 degree angle to the edge when they do the second turn. Given that I know nothing, would that eliminate, or reduce, the need for the filing?
This should be the way to build the two pieces together and then split the reins.. I think this is what you were thinking about..'s actually making a set of bolt tongs, but, same thing..Cheers.
Thank you very much
The irony ant 15:31 burning your self putting metal in tongs, but I do it to all the time
Were are u from
Gary, why don't you run a power hammer in your shop?
What happens if u hit a hard face on a hard face
Lots of great information in this video, thank you Sir.
Hi Gary...very nice demonstration...however I notice that the handles of your tongs (reins) are rather heavy as are ALL videos that I have watched on Blacksmithing!I ..myself have been a Blacksmith for over thirty years working primarily in the Steel making and Forging industries.I had the distinct pleasure of apprenticing in a shop with five very experienced of whom apprenticed in Italy almost thirty years before I arrived at the shop. In that shop it was a part of a primary steel making plant and we made a great variety of tools used in the different dept. in the steel and iron making facilities...including all the overhead crane hooks ranging from 15 to 100 ton capacity! We worked on large power hammers operated by hammer 1,000 1,500 lb and one 3,000 lb hammers run with 250 lbs Steam pressure.Needless to say any tongs we used on the power hammers were all heavier in construction! However..the "personal tongs we used doing smaller work by hand on the anvils were all VERY light in construction! MOST of our personal tongs had handles no more than 1/4 to 5/8 diameter and were round right up to the eye in most cases!Later I moved to another shop that was involved in drop forgings..and became good friends with the German Blacksmith who I was replacing on his retirement. There was only one Blacksmith..myself...and the main part of my job was to make tongs for the Hammer men who worked on the drop Hammers...about 75 of them..operating three shifts 5 days a week and sometimes weekends as well on overtime.I made several types and sizes of tongs ranging in length form 36 inches up to five feet in length! The longest tongs were for the heaters who loaded the bars in the Heating furnace for the Hammer Men...and the shortest ones...about 30 inches for Trim press operators. I also made very small light tongs for Hot Inspectors to pick up hot forgings for quality control inspections.The jaws on the tongs ranged from about 3/4 inch round up to 2 1/2 inches round to fit the steel being forged.The 3/4 inch round bars were cut up to 27 inches in length...and the 2 1/2 inch round as long as 14 inches long.In BOTH cases the Hammer Man could only grip a MAXIMUM of 3/4 of an inch at the END of the bar to forge it! I had to make tongs that would support the weight of the bar by a grip of only 3/4 of an inch..AND tightly Enough to control the bar as they moved it from impression to impression within the forging die!Even having to meet these demands I STILL made the handles of the forging tongs between 3/8 to 1/2 inch in Dia. in order to try and reduce the strain on the Hammer Men when taking into account hanging on to only 3/4 of an inch of steel!MOST of the tongs were made..with the exception of Heater tong...from stock that was a little under 3/4 inch in dia...cut a max of 13 inches long...this was for the Jaws..about 2 to 2 1/2 inches...the eye..about 3/4 of an inch...and the balance drawn out to at least 32 to 40 inches long..depending on the job!Even at that I still had some Hammer Men request even LIGHTER tongs to work with! I had a Few techniques to fit the Jaws,shape the handles and even certain grinding in the eye to Facilitate tight strong fits with a solid involved to discuss here!I would be happy to send you a couple of pics along with an explanation of why I did to make and shape the tongs so. It was a technique which served really well for 22 years and a couple of thousand pairs of tongs!You can Email me you would like to see and discuss this.I have really enjoyed watching you work and have given ME some ideas as well!!
the reason why you make a pair at the same time, is so that both parts of your tongs match in their length, width of their rivet plates etc. if you make the 2 parts of the tong at separate times it is unlikely that they would match well enough to make a good set (student at the national school of blacksmithing)
I think you should wear gloves at least on the hand that hold the warm steel, or at least advice people do to so, when you heat your steel to 1000+ C it can get very dangerous to handle, especially on small sections...
I have a suggestion for a video, how about a drift or punch rack? Just a thought Keep up the great workGrant
I am really amazed by your discipline. It looks as if it has honed your skills. I am envious of your craftsmanship.
words cant explain the skill you have enjoy very much
Super good job Dave, I know you have to be proud of yourself and the quality work you preform!! Its so exciting to see great videos and work being recorded for future generations to view how it is really made!!. Fred.
Every one be warned the Engels Coach shop on You Tube has been Stolen from Mr. Engels Some one using the name Microsoft News has commandeered Mr Engels You Tube Page and stolen the site. He has been locked out of his own site and its not getting any credit for it.
(3-26-2020) Did you know your channel got changed to Microsoft News as the name of the channel?
I can watch this for days...very interesting!
True craftsmanship. An observation: using a table saw as a work station requires vigilance. I was putting a rabbet cut on an oak plaque to accommodate tile to do away with a grout line. The blade was up about a 1/4 inch and after making my 4 cuts I turned it over to clean off the dust but brushed my finger on the blade and got a nasty cut. Just for a fraction of a second my concentration lapsed. I personally think I became to think of it as a work bench. In using our hands we hit them with hammers and other things or cut them with sharp pointy things. Constant attention is required but being human we sometimes fail. Its such a handy height. Also, if I may, I wore carpenter pants without fail. I always carried a 1 stiff putty knife, a small knife with break away points and a pencil. I found using a pocket knife or a multi-type tool not satisfactory and my side pocket easily accommodated pliers or side cutters. I find the level of knowledge and craftsmanship un paralleled. I look forward to each video. By the way Im 74 and have bent a few nails and cut a few boards. Keep up the fine work. Jim
You sir. are a credit too your craft, ive never witnessed such skill in woodworking and blacksmithing by the same person, my hat is tipped for you...
9:00 Wouldn't an angle grinder with a cutoff wheel be much quicker and easier and leave a much better edge?
I am impressed beyond my ability to put it all into a comment. First off your attention to detail and skill at both woodworking and metal work is impressive. Then to realize that in the 1800's this work was done with no power tools as we know them today and I realize just how skilled the 19th century workers were. But then to see you do this work, even with modern tools, tells a story, such as making the rings instead of buying rings manufactured by some machine that no human hand touched. WOW!! Nothing would thrill me more than to step into your shop and just look around...
Amazing how much iron work there is in a wooden wagon ,and you make it look so easy , I never get tired of watching you work ,its fascinating..!..!
What grade of steel are you using for all of the ironwork on these parts?
Just when I think I've seen everything, Mr. Engels uses a pipe jig on his lathe to shape some 5/16 or 3/8" round stock into rings.....THEN.....spends an untold amount of time welding and shaping them into "d" rings. It's simply amazing that one man has so much talent....and this is by far my favorite channel on youtube! Keep 'em coming Mr. Engels....we'll keep watching!
This and the other videos have taught me how to drill bolt holes that line up to both sides of a fixture. Cant thank you enough. You put the Fab in Fabrication!
Very very good. Thank you for video
I really enjoy watching your videos and learn new things with each video. I am curious why you paint all of the metal and do not put any coating (preservative) on the wood?
The precision of your work is breath taking. Do you ever make a mistake?At 7:49, that's how I make 18K gold jumprings, albeit a little bit smaller. And I don't need my lathe to do it, as the ID is often 1mm and the OD is 2.6mm. I use a 1 mm drill bit as a core. the principle is the same.
So many techniques, I will have to watch this series over and over again.Great stuff!!
All I can say is great!
Of the books on blacksmithing I own, I think I only have one book (in print) that you haven't listed. I do have several other books in PDF or e-book formats. There are several books you listed that have been on my wish list for some time, and you have given me a few more to add to that list. Thank you.
I have several of the books you mentioned and thank the commenters for pointing me to a couple I didn't. I prefer a real book in my hand as opposed to a PDF. But, at least I can have a look at the book before I decide to spend a bunch getting it. A lot of those older ones would be pretty hard to find, I would imagine. I just put Edge of the Anvil in my shopping cart on Amazon. With Christmas coming soon, maybe my wife will take the hint and put it under the forge for me... LOL
I've got most of these on my shelf. I remember the first time I read through Bealer's book. As I got farther in, every so often I'd read something odd, and by the end, I pretty much had Bealer figured as 'this guy believes anything he's told, and people pull his leg'. It was a toss up between the smith who claimed he learned from a guy who could reach a welding heat with cubed green wood, and the instructions for forging a rose that said 'start with ten feet of 1/4 round and upset one end till you have a stem and a three inch diameter lump'. Some good pieces, butI had to treat it more like the 'Foxfire' books, oral history written down by an outsider.
Thanks for the reviews. I added a few of these to my wishlist.
A lot of those books and some others are available here too a lot Denis for all the info, always great to have a bibliography already researched by someone and share it ! Thanks a lot.
For those who have troubles finding the Cosira books affordable here they are in PDF format Dennis,Wonderful video. Thank you.Inspired by your work and wonderful intrudction videos I've built a small layer anvil.Next up I'm planning to build a forge...Again, thanks for sharing.Saar
Nice video. Thanks! Good information. I have about 6 of these. Now I have to make a list.
The first book on blacksmithing I bought was Foxfire 5 back in 79.
FYI, the Edge of the Anvil is now the New Edge of the Anvil. to read. Thanks for sharing
the 4 blacksmith videos i've watched in a row they all have this accent
Oh wow That is fantastic
In Denmark, the Devil Take's every cold 7. Blacksmith. So all'ways keep your Forge warm.
um bom lugar de trabalho parabens
Dude thats badass
Super interessant
there is nothing traditional or award winning about this. his technique is far from ergonomic or eficient. if it fits him allright so be it, but it is not the way how its supposed to be tought.
Thanks Walter
All s beautifull
i like this work i want with you work +923084498624
Took me 12:41 to watch it the first time, and almost an hour the second time because I kept pausing it and taking notes. Haven't made one this large before, hadn't thought of it, but thanks to this video this will be my next project. Thanks!
Nice Clean Blacksmith shop?
I am also relate with tongs business.
Much appriciate your work
Very nice work and a lovely shop
Doing what he does, where he does and how he does would be better than winning the lottery.
Always enjoy watching and talking to Walter
Great job
