1" solid square is a bit much for the 75lb bull #powerhammer to bite. Using the fullering half on these combo dies, I forge behind the end to push the center out on the end of the bar. This helps avoid those "lips" that could turn into a cold shut from the outside of the material moving faster than the rest of the bar. Making up some lack of power with aggressive fullers helps as well. #dirtysmith #blacksmith #forge
