How to make a brace...
Iím mostley working with wood and are a totally novice at metalworking.
Iím posting this to get some ideas about how to do stuff in general, and to solve a spesific issue.
I would have liked to make a brace like the one shown in the picture.
It will have the same usage as in the picture, to reinforce my wooden vice screw.
How would you go about to make a ring lile that?
- what metal, may scrap do? If not, where do you non pro source metal from?
- I assume you start out with a strip of metal, heat it and form it? But how do you close the ring?
- How do you get the black color? Is it special type of metal or treatment, or do you just paint it?
sorry for the novice question, but it would be nice to be pushed in the right direction.
