So I finally got around to making my first tool! I have a buddy at the shop who is going to weld up where I got a little over excited cleaning up the shoulder on that right side, but all in all I am proud of what I managed.

That said there has got to be something I am missing for pulling in the neck? I started with the tip of an old tree wedge but pulling that all in just under an inch on each side was exhausting and my shoulders were straight up fugly until I cut them down. There has got to be an easier way to pull that out than setting it on the edge of the anvil and hammering down? Do I use the peen instead? Another technique? I want to use another 1/3 of that wedge to make a fullering tool but I also would like to work smarter not harder!
