Decided to forge the top half that the bell hangs from. Started with 20" of 1.5"x5/8 flat bar. Slit and drifted a 3/4" hole on center. Forged out each arm down to 1×5/8". Then measured off where the arms are to start, fullered and forged it down to 5/8" round bar. Did an upset corner on the transition and bent both arms 90 deg. Took an 8" jig and bent the center material to the radius. 1hr 45 min. No welding and will clean up with a file. Fun detail. Good night! #blacksmith #blacksmithing #dirtysmith #dragonforgeltd #forge #progressShots #Flipogram
