Spur Making – How to Make Handmade Spurs – Part 1

This is the first in a series of video clips on spur making that I uploaded to YouTube back a few years ago with the help of my son. The wireless microphone did not work because I had the wrong kind of jack plugged into the camera. Anyway I think you will be able to figure out what I am doing here in the video.

Video clip number one on how to make handmade one piece spurs. The metal used for this spur making tutorial is oilfield sucker rod that measures 3/4″ in diameter and what you see here is the metal being split 4 1/2″ to 5″ with a Victor cutting torch.

Next I have two spur making billets that need to be cleaned up on the 2″ X 72″ inch belt sander grinder in preparation for the next step which the propane forge where they will be heated so the can be hand forged to a flat thickness of approximately one half inch.

Thank You for taking the time to watch this spur making tutorial. You are welcome to subscribe to my YouTube Channel.
