  • Project Description

    These small crosses are cut into 3 different lengths, welded together, ground down and polished to a high luster. Some are colored with a torch and cooled down in a special oil mixture. Then usually given away. Build Description These crosses are built from different varieties of Horseshoe Nails. Each cross has 3 different lengths, which are cut, then held together with clips on a copper bar. Welded with wire or TIG process. For the centers I use a cut off wheel to shape the design I want, then the entire cross is polished with different grits from 80 through 1500, then 3 different polishing compounds on felt wheels. Materials and Tools Miller 350P, Maxstar 200DX
