So having previously struggled making dice with my old, tired, tongs that were too big for the task at hand I decided I needed to make some more of varying shapes and sizes for the tasks at hand and seeing as the inspiration/need for this came from the dice and its something I intend on making more of I figured I'd try these first.  As you can see above I started with an old coil spring, roughly straitened it and then cut to length and finished up the straitening before creating a taper and… Dice, Metal Working, Door Handles, It Is Finished, Shapes, Photo And Video, Create, Spring, How To Make

 Finally got to the point where I can move these in and start moving some metal. Time in the shop is still more illusive than I'd like but right now I'm smiling more than I care to admit.

FINALLY managed to get into the #workshop today, the day-job has unfortunately kept me away hence the lack of updates but a little free time has meant I've been able get some materials in there and start sorting things out.
