First time making our own tools from steel. Proper blacksmithing stuff.
We made a stone setting pusher from steel rod. One end was heated and forged into a square with rounded edges. The other was filed into a tapering square for setting into a wooden handle. The top was given a slight texture by taping with a file. This will give a bit of friction to reduce slipping under force.
When tapping the hot end of the pusher into the wooden handle, I obviously overdid it and cracked the handle. Hopefully it will still work ok.
We also made a tiny burnisher out of a broken shank drill. This conveniently fits into a standard chuck handle.
