  1. Forge-welding damascus tiles

    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?

  14. Shopping for a press

    Fellow Ferrophiles, I finally have money for a press and I've decided to buy a built one instead of building it myself. Any recommendations for a fast forging press? I'm in Maine if that makes any difference. Much thanks, Adriaan
