  1. I'll be building a ribbon burner powered forge next. It'll be 24" deep so I can heat treat brush blades (I don't have a place to put an Evenheat or Paragon if I bought one). It must perform at forge welding temps and at heat treat temps. Preferably built so it can be disassembled and reassembled at a hammer-in. Better protection of the insulating wool than my current forge. Dual 20# propane tanks to humor my bad back and allow tank swaps during forging. I've been happy with the bottom of my current forge: an inch or two of kitty litter on an inch of Insboard. I want the burners below the work area like my current forge and I like having kiln shelving to rest my work on - but I'm thinking of replaceable kiln shelving ribs for better heat flow and flux drip (on the rare occasions when I use flux). Yadda yadda ... I'd planned on getting some better schematics drawn today but got delayed in getting the 5160 Club newsletter out - so all I have to share at the moment is some preliminary sketches. I'll add more details later. Some things I'm set on - but in general I'm open to suggestions.

  2. I've always referred to my blades as laminated rather than san mai, but I really wanna start calling them san mai now.
