these things are fairly quick to make (when you get used to them), look cute, and sell fairly well as you can price them for a fairly low price, and still get money for your time and supplies.
Have fun with it !
Part 1 in the series was forging a J hook - http://www.instructables.com/id/Forging-a-J-hook/
Part 3 will be forging an S hook
Step 1: What you need.
-basic forging supplies (forge, anvil, hammer, tongs, chisels, punches, etc.
-lag bolt (I like 3/8"x3", but you can use what you want for different sized scorpions). If you use galvanized lag bolts, make sure you soak them in vinegar at least for a day. If you try to forge them without removing the galvanization with acid, the zinc fumes from the galvanization are POISONOUS!
-spray paint or beeswax (for finishing. On this one I'll use paint, but I typically use the beeswax finish. Namely, melting beeswax over the warm metal)
