I’m a beginning blacksmith, and I’m starting to accrue a set of tools I have forged myself. Could I get some pointers on keeping these tools looking and (more importantly) functioning well?
A specific point of concern is rust. My anvil gets a small amount when I haven’t been able to forge for a while, as does one of the hammers I made. Should I be oiling these things regularly? How often and with what oil?
This is my first post on this forum. Looks like a great community.
