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! :)

Yeah i mis tiped it becaus i mean a specail armour what we are making from 3mm sorry about. Yes we need a lot of thing learn, but we know quite lot of thing, but our workshop is really poor. But i have to be honest you re quite good, but its the saddest thing whit your profession ghere in Hungary will be in the top of armormakers. The hungaryan "top" armour makare named Bánsághi Máté" [link] but he made quite shit stuff IMO becasue he dont know what he made like black sallet in hes opinion can be wear like normal sallets, and also on the top of the head, but this isnt true. The top of the helmets are from 2 or 4 parts and welded together. The curass are terible... The long of the placart is too down about at bellybottn or mare down... I see a "mid value" armour that the owner almost was unable to move freelin in it, and they sad it "it was the old time same so ...." An the saddest thing hungarian peapol buy these expensive sh@ts. I know it is sh@t throwing but if you do it good or dont do it.

:O I think the stuff on his webside looks quite good.. but then i havent seen them IRL there can be a realy big diffrence, and i know what you mean with that people buy expensive shit.. there is quite some stores in sweden that buys cheap shit from other countries and sells it for insane amount of money, and they sell it.. people actually buy that stuff...

I think im ok, but nothing more then ok, but then there is an insane amount of good armourers in sweden. the "best" and only full time working armour in sweden is Albert Collins [link]
in sweden the armourers often tries to create as historical correct stuff as possible not as awesome as possible like in USA. and almost always when you see armour it's mirror polished, but that was an extremly expensive thing to do so many dident have it! thats why no armour i make is polished so you see reflections in it^^

If you and SSSF can so should you buy the book "Techniques of medieval armour reproduction" thats the book that have helpt me the most :)
everything about armouring is what i have learnd by reading on internet and in books, never been shown how to do stuff!
it's quite expensive but it's far worth it!

wow, that's a lot of raising from a cold metal o.o... have you tried doing that hot?¿

Skane-Smeden Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
hehe nop, this was my first time ever raising anything :)

And I can tell now why to do i hot! cuz when working cold it's so much harder and you have to hold the hammer and the pize harder, and when you stop it hurt your fingers xD and i still dose (24h later) hehe but i think my fingers will be like normal tomorrow :)
