I don't think the ball/cross pien thing was mentioned as suggestion so much as examples of why you don't need a fancy hammer. I would reccomend you get a proper farriers rounding hammer as it does have a purpose to it's design. You just don't need to buy a high dollar hammer.

I have a friend that built an entire shoe board for the FWCF exam with a 2.5# Diamond rounding hammer. Made some darn nice shoes with that thing until he made a crater in the round face from hitting his punches and etc.

As far as nippers, thats gonna be personal preference and what your hands like to hold. Most guys I know use race track nippers on everything but drafts and crosses. Me, I prefer a pair of standard 14", but I also have some good size mitts.

As far as tongs all I've ever used were handmade then I found religion. Now I use Jim Keiths.

Questions: will longer nippers help me? - in that I have small hands and struggle with larger/draft hooves. They gave us 12 in our set and that's what we started out with with the school's.

Tongs - I was also given two pairs of tongs, both by bloom forge, they're different sizes, but forgot exactly what. & a W-brand hot fitting tong. Are these okay?

Cleaning - Some people has told me to use gasoline to clean my tools - granted I haven't done it yet as gas is the price of gold right now - but would it work or would it ruin them?

Ball pein, cross pein rounding hammer -- Joey is correct at least for me, It was just a comment that you may like a cheaper hammer as well as an expensive one. If I'm pulling clips on a rectangular section as in a plain, I like a rounding hammer, but on rims and eventers I like a cross pein.

Tongs are also preference. I have Jim Keith (love 'em), homemade (proud of 'em) and Diamond (OK for shoe mods, too light for shoe building).

St Croix work well for me, but eventers or extra EZ for thicker walls and rims or plains for thinner. There is quite a difference in how they're punched.

Just stay away from gasoline for personal safety. It also evaporates and leaves metal subject to rust. Kerosine (#1 diesel) or regular diesel.

Longer reins can give a mechanical advantage if your hands are big enough to go to the end and the jaw dimensions haven't changed. Since the jaws usually are bigger with longer reins they probably don't give an advantage and with small hands may be a disadvantage. Try to borrow some longer ones and see. My hands aren't particularly large, but I do span 9" from the tip of my thumb to the tip of my little finger and I like a 15" nipper.

The best things about the good old days -- I wasn't good and I wasn't old.

The older I get, the more horses I shoe, the fewer things that I can absolutely, positively fix.

I worked for years with

a stall jack
home made tool box
NC driving hammer
2 rasps
diamond clench block
rounding hammer
Home made stand
GE nippers, I now use nordics
The Knife, hoof knife
loop knife
knife sharpener
Nordic Clinchers, still prefer them
I started with StCroix shoes, but wish I had discovered Kirks sooner.

I'm sure I left something out.

I am rebuilding now, and wont live long without replacing my forging tools.

The Nordic Viking Racetrack semi-polished nippers are $72 at Pretty darn nice for the price. These won't last quite as long as the GE's, but they are a lot less money.

The standard 14" Viking nippers now look like a GE Easy head with round handles that are easy on the hands. $76 at well-shod.

Good luck with your adventure.:D
