    Thanks for all the prayers and get well wishes. The doctor mentioned the sterile maggots, but luckily he has a little whirl pool thingy that does the same thing. The doctor couldn't really give me much info about my finger when i went to his office on monday. Half looked black and half looked normal ish. But he said it probably was better then it looked. One good thing about getting my finger mangled is that all the rest for my right hand should get rid of the carpel tunnel. ~Hogan Baker

    Hey guys, so today i was splitting logs in a 20 ton log slitter and my finger got caught and it pinched half of my fore finger right off ! Boy it did and does hurt. Anyway, i got it reattached by one of the best hand surgeons in the area who thankfully was in the building at the time. He said that i have only about a 20% chance of keeping it. So, i would appreciate some payers. i get to find out in 10 days.... ~hogan baker sorry about the bad typing, i am only using one hand.
  5. Check out what Don Fogg has on it... here Good luck, Hogan Baker
  6. Hey Sam, I am sorry to hear that you lost your job, but I am happy that you are going to be doing some more smithing. Maybe I could stop by some time? ~Hogan Baker
  7. I went to Middleton Place about 3 years ago. It is a really interesting place! I remember meeting the resident blacksmith, really nice fellow, but I don't remember his name (It was before I got interested in forging). If you can go, you really should! ~Hogan Baker
  8. That is an awesome boat! I wish you best of luck! Its very nice blog too, I may have to try to figure out some of those knots in my spare time. ~Hogan Baker
  9. I just welded up some chain saw blades as my first damascus, and it was pretty hard, plus it was all full of flaws. I think that I, just like you, am going to do some regular old straight laminate. The MS that C Craft is refurring to is Ed Caffrey and you can read his wonderfully written out replies here Good Luck, Hogan Baker

    Thats like 20 minutes from me. Actually I share a forge with Geoff, but I am not at college. ~Hogan
  12. Wonderful work! How did you finish the flower? Hogan Baker
  13. Man! This sure is coming out fantastic! You guys rock. ~Hogan Baker
  14. "The Journeyman Smith may test with any forged homogenous carbon steel of his or her choice. No Damascus steel (pattern-welded) or other forge-welded material (welded cable, etc.) will be allowed for this test." Alright, so dumb question time, is that line on the blade a hardening line? Or is it the seam between wrought and 1095? ~Hogan Baker
