    Fireplace tool set

    This is a fireplace set I made - pictures and fabrication steps are at http://www.msbn.com/Art/shop.html.

    This is a real easy project. The secret is the fancy handles - a component I bought from King Architectural Metals.

    How They Make baskets

    Saw on one of the cable channels how they make the baskets.
    Take the rods weld them together at the both ends.
    Put them in a forge so the middle is red hot
    Chuck both ends in lathe chucks with manual turn crank on one and plunge leaver on the other.
    Give the rod assembly two or three turns from one chuck
    Plunge the other chuck end to expand the basket.
    I has seen these baskets on work before but had wondered how they had made them. Then the pieces were welded onto twisted rods and a fitting crimped over the joint.

    I checked out your website. You have some very unique items there and look to be of excellent workmanship. I wish I had an artistic talent to create stuff like that. Mine is in a different and much more expensive media.... cars & trucks.

    It was sunny and 80 today. Welding in shorts and flip flops. It doesn't get any better than that!
