hi Jason,
have you done much metal work before? one of my favorite ways to make stakes with out much cost to me is look for railroad spikes and polish off both ends to fit your needs, then put it in a vice to put it to use. huge bolt heads can be converted into stakes of your choosing by shaping it with a grinder (heavy grinding wheel 1st/then flapper wheel of grit size that will polish while grinding(something not too rough)/ thats usually smooth enough for me to start hammering on but you can go smoother if you want) if you have a Kalamazoo belt sander you don't need any of those steps and you'll only need one happy step using the belt sander.
and lastly the other fav. is taking hammer heads and welding them strait to bar stock and *wala!* ready to use.
a wooden dishing stump is usually always a good idea as well, doesnt have to be good wood as long as its not rotting too bad and is nice and big, just use your hammers to hammer in dishing areas of your choosing, enough guess work and you'll know what shapes you need for what pieces.

hope that helps
-douglas

hey thanks for the tips they are all great points for me to jump off from. as far as the stakes go, do you temper/harden them or just go for it? also do you anneal the metal before you do cold work?... as far as your question as to me doing much metal work, most of my work is cast iron, bronze or aluminum with fabricated steel components but i'm trying to learn how to work with steel in a more fluid way. thanks again for your help. cheers

you bet man. the hammers don't need tempering, and the railroad spikes will only polish more from the hammering abuse so my advice is jump in and wing it, cause the railroad steel is tough shit. it can take it

real amazing work my man! what thickness sheets do u use?
Reply
:icontimeturbine:
TimeTurbine Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
for my sculpture practice and experimentation its usually 18 ga. but for armour its always thicker so i dont get complaints from customers that they broke themselfs doing something they shouldn't hahaha. helms 14-12 ga. faces on helms can be as thick as 9ga. so when i stretch it it doesnt fail. legs and arms usually 16-18 ga. and any breastplates if not out of leather(never thinner than 8ounce hide but as think as 12 ounce) then its usually 16 gauge, anything thicker would just be too much over protection and heavy on the total scale when finished since the buyers usually have to run around the stuff. if and when i use stainless steel i always go a single gauge thinner because its so tough and resilient, no need to go thicker.

trial and error, a determination to overcome and mistakes, not being afraid to hit the steel like you mean it! make your own hammers and shaping stakes keeps the cost down. otherwise let your imagination go wild.
And thanks very much for saying so, very kind of you.
