  1. Thank you, Alan, never in a million years would I have thought to NOT hit harder
  2. I have a guillotine type fullering tool but I struggle to make the fullers evenly, even though I alternate edges, often one side is deeper. Why would this happen and how can I fix it? Thank you
  3. It was spur of the moment thing, I wanted a double-edged, single bevel pattern-welded dagger. Big mouthful I did end up hammering out the mild and it straightened a bit but because of the bevels, most of the mild was gone. So not enough to straighten it.
  4. So I did something kinda dumb. I welded a small billet with mild steel one side, high carbon the other. I knew quenching in water would bend it towards the mild and that it is possible?? to straighten by hammering the mild thus stretching it. Comical moment when the blade bent dramatically inside the forge! Of course, its a bi-metal. I tried several things to get it straight after quenching but no. My question is, what could I have done? Is it possible to do this with blades? I know kiridashi and chisels are different, but I wanted the same idea just along the whole blade length. Thanks guys, Adriaan
  5. Once you have tiles cut off the end of a bar of damascus, how do you weld them together? I have tried welding them to a sacrificial plate before forge welding but the joints have never been very good. Any body that can give a few pointers?
  6. Cold water on a hot surface trim.61C8DD5E-8790-4C58-9996-C4B969B96C9C.MOV
  7. I would say its the executioner's felling axe
  8. One of my latest ones, big boy blade
  9. The axe on the right has been sold. Thank you
  10. Thanks guys, it really means a lot to me
  11. Thanks Alan, I'm making a comeback
  12. Mild steel bodies with bearing races edges forge-welded in. Done without powertools, my poor arm
