Could I used mattress springs to forge a rapier battle-ready rapier?
>>
>>1241855
Mattress springs? No. Leaf spring? Yes.

>>1241857
Thanks.
What other common iten that i may have in my garage can be melted down to make one?
>>
>>1241859
If you melt the metal you've gotten it too hot and have probably ruined it.

>>1241862
What is the right temp range?

That's too overbroad a question. It's like asking "what's the best way to cook?" Cook what? Temperature range for *what?*

I'd recommend picking up "The Backyard Blacksmith: Traditional Techniques for the Modern Smith" by Lorelei Sims. Great book that will teach you the basics of metalsmithing, including heating, hammer work, treating, and the like.

Or, pirate it, whatever.

I think i found myself a great coat of arms:)

Just go to a junkyard, breh. Usually tons of shit you can salvage for working if you don't mind experimenting to test random steel (mower blades are never good, too soft). Leaf and coil springs, and old files (the metal things for sharpening and whatnot, not paperwork) make for solid knives. Oil for quenching, NOT water. Work small with shit like bowies/camp knives until you've got some experience under your belt. Homemade coal forge would be the easiest way to dip your toes in forging without a large cash injection.

You must mean arms. Coat of arms is actual coat with your arms on it.

You can forge weld the springs together to make a billet.
>>
>>1242411
Forge welding a shitload of mild steel. Yes, that will make a great pile of ass to swing around.
>>
>>1242450
Springs aren't made of mild steel they're typically made of spring steel.
