What does everyone use for a stove poker? I made this out of 1/2" round bar. Got a 3-4" hook on the end and is 42" long. Seems to work good. Show me what you made or use.

"Repor...oh.... Nevermind." Hah, we have one very similar to your's, FC. Only it has the spring-type handle.

I use a piece of flat bar used for concrete ties, about 1/4 x 1 inch I forge a handle and poker on them.
I get them cherry red in the fire pit and beat on them on a stump to form the ends.
Made quite a few for friends and neighbors, so no pics as its at my cabin.

I use a small shovel that came out of a cabin on a place we owned when I was a kid.
We used the cabin as a place to sleep when we would go hunting. Many good memories of the fires we'd make in that fireplace to warm us up and that lil shovel was what was always on the hearth from the time I first went there.

teetering on the edge
most of the time when I do it, I cut a piece of pipe, that the square will just fit into, to the length that I want the twisted section.
then I have old sockets welded to a plate with a hole through the center, that holds one end of the square, then slide the pipe over the square, then a big tap handle for twisting it...if you keep the pipe tight to the socket, and the tap handle tight to the pipe, it stays pretty straight...as you twist it the square stock becomes shorter pulling the tap handle/pipe/socket together, and as long as the pipe is cut square it keeps everything straight...
long twists do bend a lot more than something like the short twist on the poker...

I made this when I bought my OWB.
The flat steel on top I use when cleaning out the ashes.

The wood fork (foreground) is nice - I place a piece halfway in the door, then grab the fork, which is hanging where my right hand can find it behind me. Slide the fork under the split, and place it where I want.

Nothing special here, an old poker and scraper, a cheap ash shovel from Fleet Farm, and a pair of welding gloves all stoveside.
