    Default Forge fun, 9/16 wrench from head bolt

    Hi all, had a set of head bolts left over from major repair on Ford 351 boat engine that I wanted to try and forge into something interesting.

    One of the left over bolts, a punch I made from 5/8 inch O1

    Was a good learning experience and the wrench works.

    Thanks, sure the wrench is crude but I like the post apocalyptic rough look. Really pleased how the punch turned out. Needed it to make the large punch hole in the head of the bolt so to speed things up I used a draw temper on it and had it ready for use less then a half hour after forging. The punch should be good for many other projects.
