Antique Ox-Tongue Iron - Restoration

פורסם בתאריך 19 פבר 2020
In this video i'm restoring an antique ox-tongue iron.

The ox-tongue iron is named for the particular shape of the insert. It was used in the late 19th century.
I bought this one on eBay for $25. The condition of this item was not too bad in terms of rust. Unfortunately the ox-tongue insert was missing. The handle had play because one nut of the two bolts was missing. During the dissasembling I realized that it had asbestos as termal isolation, I replaced it with parts made out of duroplastic. Duroplastic does not melt, it's heat resistant up to around 300°C. As the holes of the handle were not centered, I decided to drill them up and close them with glued in pins. One of the two bolts of the handle was bent, one nut and washer was missing and the used washer was too big. That's why I decided to make it all new. The door didn't fit at all, so I welded up the holes, and made new ones until the door sit flush with the top of the iron. After that I was able to make the outer contur fit. I choose to turn a few parts black. After the first sandblasting I removed all the scratches and pitting with sanding and then I sandblasted them again to achieve a very nice and even surface finish. The bluing then makes a very nice matte shiny look. I decided to polish the body, but I used bluing on the inside for rust protection.
Overall I really like the look from this iron, how the colors of the wood, the black steel and the polished steel play with eachother.

I hope you like my work and the video.

  • Lets take a time to appreciate the quality this guy has achieved on his content creation: - He shares the background of each restoration in a brief and charismatic, yet technical way. -TIMESTAMPS, -We have a precise idea of cost and time spent on each work. -Hands down the most complete workshop on youtube. -Clearly a lot of research, skills and creativity behind every piece restoration. -Perfectly timed fastfowards/timeskips/regular rec -Great video and audio quality. -Originality in all his channel. Thanks for making all of that, man!

    • @hello If you browse in, say, Windows10/uBlock Origin/Brave environment, you get an ads-free experience. Android makes this difficult, but Google owns Android/ILaward, and gets rich through advertising. Yes, they kindly give us ILaward, GMail, Drive, Docs, etc. 'free'. But we pay in _mobile_ (Android cellphone) data bandwidth sacrificed to their ads.

    • You forgot "shows the final product and test". I've been on reddit far too long, and I get anxiety every time this guy's videos draw to an end because I'm expecting it to cut off before the restored thing is tested. I haven't been disappointed yet

    • I don’t know if it’s quite original cause I’ve seen a few other yter that make restoration videos but mk

    • ٠0ج ٠0جان

    • @Valerie Quievy ?

  • That probably looks better than when it was sold new. Beautiful work

  • Very excellent...... 👌🏽

  • "I make a new one" is basically this channel's crown jewel of lines

  • What kind of oil is he (are you) using for blueing?

  • 🔥🔥🔥 nice work

  • güzel işcilik harika sonuç tebrikler

  • Watching from Brazil

  • 👌🏼

  • Outstanding

  • I suggest you take the metal shavings to a metal scrapyard and exchange them for money. ;-)

  • Alatnya punya semua 😲😭

  • I made a shoeshine box in 7th grade and made a C.

  • Nice job bro 👍👍

  • Bay wd-40 . No goot teknik

  • Nobody, and I mean Nobody should ever restore anything without you being there!

    • Вы - Великий Мастер. На Ваши работы можно смотреть вечно. Спасибо за красоту, которую Вы творите!

  • HEY SOMETHING I ACTUALLY KNOW EPOXY AYEEEEE

    • “Test fitting the door” me: ohhhh it looks nice! “Doesn’t fit at all” me: yeah it doesn’t fit.

  • This was really interesting! One random question: is it possible to reuse all those metal shavings in any way?

  • Love all your videos, what brand are your right angle screwdrivers? I need to buy a set of them. Keep up the good work.

  • Well, you have absolutely no idea about how to work with wood 😂, BUT the rest of your craft is pure sorcery! Respect!

  • Very well done!!!

  • 숯 넣어 쓰는 옛날 다리미

    • The handy work is amazing! The craftsmanship is beyond impressive! However what impresses me as much, if not more, is what we don’t see. The measurements and calculations that happen on the side are amazing. It’s one thing to make the items, it is a whole different thing to make them so they fit perfectly! That does not happen by accident. Math is useful and this proves it!

  • The best Chanel for restoration

  • Wow what an awesome transformation! Love the channel and you exquisite craftsmanship. Thanks for sharing!

  • The thing that "bugs" me> are there any bugs left in the wooden handle? Here's the tip: before restoring small wooden objects like this handle - put in in a microwave oven for a few minutes. Nothing alive will stay inside wood :))

  • Next you should restore your sandblaster's power switch.

    • Вы - Великий Мастер. На Ваши работы можно смотреть вечно. Спасибо за красоту, которую Вы творите!

  • Your work at attention to detail is beyond complementary. I would love with each project that you include your project hours.

    • Вы - Великий Мастер. На Ваши работы можно смотреть вечно. Спасибо за красоту, которую Вы творите!

  • I woke up today thinking I was going to make some custom bolts, washers, and nuts. Then I realized two things: 1. I have no idea how to do that 2. Even if I knew I am missing multiple critical tools.

    • Mesmerizing. You’ve got the best tools! I never get tired of watching your transformations. You make it look too easy, the sign of a true artist!

    • Catching a glimpse of the man who has stolen my heart with his talent, skills & hands that can be rough when needed or soft when doing delicate work is why I'm here! Thank you for sharing your amazing gift! ♥️👍🇨🇦🔥

  • Thank you for the sand blaster button

  • Absolutely brilliant. You have skills and knowledge that are extraordinarily AMAZING to watch. So very precise and deliberate.

  • Stunning as always!!

  • 3:57 POV: You eat chipotle

  • We the human beings have been always looking to create better things throughout the World's history to make our lives much easy and the same time to earn money for a better wealthy and comfortable style of living..

  • Do you think the holes on the handle were off centre for ergonomics? Was it designed for a right handed persons to use for long periods of time?

  • Это не железо! Это называется утюг! Им гладят вещи. В некоторых деревнях до сих пор такими пользуются.

  • Now that is a beautiful restoration. Working example.

  • Imagine all the time you’ve spent digging through a spare hardware bucket just to find something and “make” it work. This dude over here creating washers from scratch and sh*t.

    • my grandmother still has one of these at home 😂

    • Many thanks for watching :-)

  • My grandma's old iron was very similar to this one but she told me she used to put embers inside, indeed I didn't understand why you made that tongue... And talking about it, I'm NOT an expert at all but wouldn't you waste less metal if you cut the cylinder in half before making it plain with the machine (16:07)?

  • Красота!!!

  • "the slot is deformed. I can't use a screwdriver" **proceeds to use a screwdriver**

  • U can turn soil into gold God bless ur hands very impressive work.

  • i think turkish translator use google translate some words is wrong

  • Superrr 👏👏👏

  • J ai le mm à la maison

  • 1:07, be careful

  • I’m so in love with vintage stuff he restores. It makes my heart happy to see it. Even though I’m born in 2005, I have the heart for beautiful vintage things 💛.

  • Когда наступит БП ,то такие утюги будут на вес золота наверное ) А вообще была понятна только разборка утюга.А потом началась какая-то магия и алхимия ! Я сидел и хлопал глазенками в полном недоумении временами .А в конце всё встало на свои места.

  • Absolutely love all the little tools and gadgets this guy has 😂 like that little rotating blade thing he used for that hole in the scene before he waxed the wood

  • Gotta love those curved flatheads they've saved the day in many cases! Just got a set not too long ago. Different ones that are shorter but pretty much the same. Love em.

  • Making your own nuts and bolts with a metal lathe has to be the most boss move in craftsmen existence. Also, that little countersink tool you used on the wooden handle is COOL!

  • Have you ever had a fire from quenching oil?

  • Vraiment top top 😎👍💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪👏👏👏

  • Почему автор не использует что-то типо wd40 чтоб раскрутить ржавые болты?

  • The most beautiful and detailed restoration ever, great work, great video and subtitles

  • Looks like you could have made two ox-tongue inserts if you'd cut that giant bullet in half. It's always good to have a second one heating up when there's a lot of laundry to iron.

  • Okay I have to ask. Why the hell do you make a new nut instead of just buying one.

  • casually removes asbestos

  • Good job

  • I am so glad I can use a steam iron at work, all day

  • Is the steel part hot?

  • الله يسعد قلبك

  • You must be the Ironman!! Wow 👏😮

  • Türkçe video başlıkları, Türkçe açıklamalar... Türkçeyi nerden biliyorsun? Güzel....

  • I like video 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  • Allthough the end result looks awesome, I do think you should leave imperfections, it adds to the authenticity.

  • Do u reuse the shredded up material

  • 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Make A New Ones

  • Şuan ütülecek elbiseleri çıkarıp ütüleme işine geçiyorum. Ütü yapamaya heveslendim☺️

  • 🤘🤘🤘

    • Two thing - first...OMG did we see his face in the reflection??? And second... I think it would be amazing and hilarious if a pregnant woman bought that " I make a new one " T-shirt and wore it during her pregnancy. That is all.

  • Не зат???

  • Maşallah eline sağlık.

  • Mi bisabuela tenia una pero en el orificio le metia carbón caliente.

  • Fasinating skills. Fasinating workshop. Fasinating results. Fasinating❕

  • 진짜 장인이시네요...

  • It makes me want to iron something. My mother used to make me iron shirts and pants. I washed my own clothes too. I'm almost a hausmann. Oddly I like those small tools you used. I need those.

  • Is it worth the time? Why can't we buy a new ?

  • Nice 😊👍👏👏👏👏👏👏

  • я одного не пойму, зачем гайки, болты и шайбы на токарнике вытачивать? что нельзя подобрать похожие из хламыдника? ведь у каждого есть целые ёмкости разного плана с болтами, гайками, шайбами и прочим.

  • 7:32 sounds like getting a message from Twitter or something

    • MyMechanics: "This piece is missing a washer. I make a new one." Every other normal person: "a washer? Aren't they like five cents at the hardware sto..." MyMechanics: "I MAKE. A NEW ONE."

  • Did I just see a Panasonic handy cam?

  • Excellent restoration and a fantastic result. Thanks for showing how it works too, I didn’t have a clue, I had never seen one of those before. 🙏🏻

  • I love watching these restoration videos! Keep these awesome videos coming.
