I suppose it is the nature of a journal, or a diary, or in this case a blog, to appear to be repeating itself. This seems like the umpteenth time I’ve shown this style of limb iron in manufacture. But, it is no good trying to dodge the nature of this beast, so here goes:

The Mk. IX limb irons have recieved their major bends. Next we will trim them for profile and then weld their two halves together.

As always in this project, even though we do use some modern methodologies like Tig welding and machining to supplement our forge work, there is nothing in the basic design that would be anything but easy for a full on blacksmith (ancient or not) to reproduce.
