Experimental run with some forged 464 brass cap rail for a #wip. Designed to have a recess for the subrail like commercial cap to help hide any minor gaps between cap and sub. Dies were also made with a flash gutter with the intention of trimming the flash in the vertical saw. Starting stock size is 2 round. Shown is the die set in the hammer, a steel test run showing top and bottom with flash and then the brass run cleaned up. Happy with the results. . . . #ironstudio #dieforging #shelteringinplace

Half a degree of taper over twenty for inches. I think this is something a machinist should do? #ironstudio #lightlyforged #blacksmithingisstupid
