  3. well the biggest ones are for tanto's

  5. ugh iv heard that alot, plus this is my first metal work really, but ill just try my best
  6. I was kinda expecting something more, but im happy with what ever is availible, i did a quick spark test, results were very high in carbon but ya i had to cut some parts off. im going to use the biggest part for my actual blade, the next to biggest as a experiment blade to test everything before trying it on the good one, and the two smaller pieces are, just to test things if i need to.

    Wellllll, i was walking around the local flea market and i came across a small bar of brass, I checked the price and it was only 3 dollars, not knowing if brass is expensive but i liked it so i bought it. I dont know anything about brass really other than its copper and zinc and that it can be smelted down for casting, im posting a few pics. just to show you the size. Im really just posting this to read anything enteresting, if nothing happens and i give up, ill pound it out and make some seppa

    My layout

    THX =D iv been wondering, I have mine setup out on concrete(im going to risk dying from explosion) but i havnt really made progress because i couldnt figure the size of black pipe to get but now ill get 1.25". also how big did you drill your holes, how far apart, and does it matter if there EXACTLY perfectly strait down the pipe. and the other thing iv been delaying on is im am going to somehow incorporate the thing with the blocks in the front in back, so i can manage with the pipe, and the dirt under the firebrick, i thought about either making a pvc air control in front, or possibly something on the back but either way i just want to hurry up and get the forge finished so i can start on mounting my railroad piece for a anvil. THX for everything it means alot to me
  12. WOW those are amazing, you are quite the bladesmith there neil. thank you for posting images

  14. Erm, what exactly is hybrid polishing
