Everything related to the craft of making custom cowboy gear. And a few other gadgets.

Where can I find 18 gauge steel (5/8" strips) to build hangers? I've searched online for steel suppliers but to no avail? Does Muellers or Hirschfield carry this?

A new book, 2011, was just released by Schiffer Publications, "The Ring Bit: History, Form & Function" by Donald Minzenmayer. This is a big picture book with a good text. There is a tiny bit of notoriety in the book for yours truly, Frank Turley. I'm featured in a few color photos forge welding a ring to dimension. I did this demo at the Houston Area Blacksmiths Association meeting in Oldenburg, TX, in 2006.

We realize that the ring bit is not in favor anymore in the U.S. This book gives us a fresh look at it's function. The ring bit might not be quite the nutcracker we previously thought. The book shows old and new ring bits, some of the recent ones, truly works of art. A fine Mark Dahl bit is shown on the front and back covers (hard back).
