This is a flatter made from scrap materials. A ball pain hammer was annealed and a hole drilled through the poll. This was truncated and the piece left over becomes a header for rivets.. I cut a 2” piece of 2 x 5/8” plate and drilled a hole ha
Lfvway through the centre and inserted a bit of rod into the hole. I also cut a 1/2” length of tube for a collar.
My welding is not the best and rotating it frequently gave me a lot of blobs to grind off, but I hope it will hold up.
Part of my reason for making this is that flatters are in short supply and if I can encourage people who can do better, there will be more to go round.
