I've been providing them to fellow prospectors for some time now and have just forged some more. Two gone, six left.
Let me know if anyone wants one.
Here's some golden goodness that my crack scratchers are pulling up.

During my apprenticeship we had a blacksmith in the workshop and he forged us all various tools.
Even though arc welding had arrived his demos of welding two sections of steel together where you could not see the join amazed us all.
I put them on a page so it's easier for people to get them. I hope this is OK here. https://shop.buildsbybaz.com/
5 available in stock.
I set the timer on my phone camera while I was forging tonight. I really like this shot.

The coronavirus lockdowns have given me opportunity in many ways, to get things done, but in other ways have hampered me terribly. All in all, I have been hyper busy and got a lot done. To earn extra cash to get the Viper hangar/workshop finished, I have been forging these crack scratchers, something I'm glad I developed over the last couple of years of gold prospecting in the field. Each time I sell a tool, I can go to the local hardware store and buy more wood, steel and fasteners. Slowly getting there.
When I have no money, I roll up the sleeves and get the labour done where the extension on the other end of my house is to be built. After lifting the paver bricks, I discovered a concrete driveway underneath. At least now when I push the Viper around to the other side of the house, I have one less step to negotiate with the wheels. (https://www.buildsbybaz.com/category/viper-build/)
Today I built a stud wall down the side of the Viper hangar bay. Hopefully I can sell enough tools to go get some more wood and finish it.
