    "The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." -Teddy Roosevelt Adapt and overcome -the words Viggo Mortenson posted above his mirror when working on the Lord of the Rings
  4. you know its cold when...ok I live in Texas. So I've forgot the last time its been even remotely cold, today it was 72 for the high and it's JANUARY!!!
  5. This is a prolly very simple, but how do you put the quote that appears in blue below your name? I can't seem to find out how to do that. ???
  6. Very beautiful piece! I love the handle and the guard. Terrific work and keep it up. [applause] -Loren
  7. They're the hard firebricks. I checked out that website and will order some soft brick as soon as I get my paycheck. Hey thanks for the info. it helped alot! -Loren
  8. Ok here's my problem. I'm building a simple forge out of 7 firebricks, 2 on bottom, 1 on each side, 1 for the back, and 2 on the top. Then I plan to line the inside with ITC-100. Anyway, I'm cutting a hole in the back brick so I can forge larger blades and also to help with the ventilation of the fumes. My dad has used a skillsaw with a masonary diamond edged blade and we got very little progress. So I was wondering if anyone knew of a faster way to cut firebrick? Sorry if I confused anyone. -Loren
  9. I like it! I can't play the guitar or any other instrument, but I like it. [ylsuper]

    This one just made me laugh. Heaven is where : • the police are British, • the cooks are French, • the mechanics are German, • the lovers are Italian, • and all is organized by the Swiss. #### is where : • the police are German, • the cooks are British, • the mechanics are French, • the lovers are Swiss, • and all is organized by the Italians !
