    I don't think I can get plain iron. Do you mean steel? And I'm assuming you mean a shoe, or are you thinking actually anything we want? Thanks

    I went to the forge this morning and got a piece of 3/8 x 1 x 13 and a couple of other odd short pieces to us as shims to lay the new floor in my daughter's room. As I am under a bit of pressure to get the room done, I'm not sure I'll have time for this go around, but I'll try.

    I was able to buy some of that dimension today, so I'll throw something together. It will be a shoe, or at least a facsimile there of.
