Are you ready to finish Lesson 6 of the blacksmithing guide? Well this is the last video in the this lesson. Here, you’ll see as Armondo uses a vice to bend the corner brace into a 90º angle. It’s fascinating to learn how to make a corner brace. See him heat what was a single plank of steel, and then bend effortlessly into a hard angle. Our expert Armondo will also show you how he uses a tool to hammer each side of the steel to create a mounting hole for the bracket. This bracket would be great to support an island counter or any type of solid wood block of some sorts, like say… an anvil mount? Make sure you continue onto the next lesson, Lesson 7: How to Make a Twisted Metal Handle. In that lesson, Armondo will teach you how to use the vice to literally twist steel.
