I would say that it far from a failure; you learnt important lessons about raising metal, got a very recognisable result and most importantly, you did have fun doing it, I hope.

By the way, what is your raising stake's ball made from? I have only managed to find cast iron balls for mine.

It was lots of fun and I will be raisning all my elbows and knees in the future instead of doomning them like before :)

I think mine is cast from iron. my ball is from a big drum, you put tools in the drum and starts it like a waching machione and the iron balls hits all the tools removing every sharp edge. I got my balls form a smith that told me that the balls where from such a machine :)

but they are veryhard! and very VERY good! ^^
but everything is from cast metal those days... very little that is the real stuff if you dont make it your self or have a smiht making it to you. but then it cost some money.. :( BUT it's far worth it if you ask me as soon as i can start with forging things hot i will be making lots of hammers, speciall tools and so on that i "need" :)

Nice one this is but not a cap is a sallet in the first state of making if i dont miss. What tipe of steel are you using? Warm/cold rolled mild steel?

I have to reply myself, iam bit blind i got it it is a 1.25mm mild steel, but the we got a special one that other workshops use to raise cups an trophie cups, but that is not normal mild steel because the 1 mm raising capacity is 3-4x than normal mild steel. Altrough see my gallery for a skull visor that we raised cold from 3mm mild cold rolled steel about 4 hours!

It's correct it is the begining of a sallet! :)
and im quite pleased with it for beeing the first thing I ever raised!

What I can read on the skull visor it's "2mm mild steel" or that is what the picture says hehe ;P

But I prefer normal steel that don't have any special properties cuz then it's more close to the real thing. or that is what I think! :)

but all of your and SSSF stuff looks great :) but you just like me have lots more to learn! :)
