Railroad spike kit
Easy to build and a must to have especially new forgers like myself. Of course I tried without the bundle and I can say the ease of having this is a must easy to build spike handle and way easier to handle spike afterwards. A+ for the price and ease of product.
Extremely fun and informal learning experience
I greatly enjoy creating thing and this bundle multiples the enjoyment of the art and Experience of forging by forging the tools and I have started working the knifes . The videos are also extremely interesting and informational
They work great, just follow the instructions. That was my 2nd pair. But only cause I made them wrong the first time and the fork part snapped off as I was twisting them. But that was my fault. But it was all that was showin. And very speedy delivery.
So much fun!
I've made a few spike projects this year using this bundle. These tongs are wonderful and the twisting tool isn't bulky
Railroad spike knife kit
It is an awesome set of tongs for railroad spikes. It holds them very secure with very little wiggle. Kens instructions to forge them are easy to follow. I will definitely recommend if you want to make anything out of railroad spikes
This bundle set is priced well below what it should, but don't let the price fool you, It is has the best quality I have seen.
I bought this package for the twisting bar. Already having tongs and spikes. I am quite impressed with the quality. Of corse I made the tongs and have used the spikes. I will be buying from Aiken’s again
railroad spike tongs
Just as advertised. As in most things the more you have to do, the more you learn and appreciate the results. Looking forward to fashioning the tongs
Great set of tongs & twist wrench
Received these as a gift. I've used the twist wrench for lots of projects - probably more than the railroad spike tongs. The tongs are convenient for when I need them, but I don't do much with spikes.

Fun project, great tool!
The tongs go together pretty fast. Ken’s YouTube page has a good video for assembly instructions. These tongs offer a lot of material to work with when you’re shaping the reins. Once assembled, they grab tight to the head of a RR spike and give a good firm grip. You feel totally in control of what you’re handling with these tongs. These are a must for anyone who wants to consistently do railroad spike projects.
