  1. Well if this happens i would enjoy watching it and id be willing to pay for the content. thanks
  2. Hello, im just asking if Arctic Fire is still going on? I absolutely loved watching the first year and i bought the dvd and the cool poster that come with it. And the second was really amazing watching everyone struggle to build that master piece. Also nice to see im not the only person who ends up doing antler fights with the drunk buddies. I noticed with the explosion of forged in fire the desire of bladesmithing has exploded as well but it felt like a lack of spirit of the content. I have watched the first year from time to time just to listen to it while working just for the
  3. Hello i bought a bowie and need help identifying the maker. Its a j with a series of stacks behind it. All help would be appreciated
  4. Oh I understand about those flasks. I actually use those ones and larger ones that I have built every day in my shop with delft and petrobond but the small one he is using here caught my attention because it has a nice appeal and I kind of collect flasks. That's why I was asking where he got it from
  5. I have to ask where did you get that small flask. I love it and would love to get one
  6. Hello, everyone it can be done with standard pla but there is an issue called "ashing". so after the burnout is done you need to blowout the ash left after the flask.
  7. hello, Im currently working on a "lost ABS" casting project and was wondering what how I should do my burnout. I plan on using my kiln but does anyone have any ideas on what temp I should do the burnout on and for how long? I just go my 3d printer and this is my first ABS burn out and if anyone has tips they would be well received. thanks
  8. hello, My wife is working with a Shugendo practitioner and both of them have had no luck finding a source of rice straw. They both came to me asking to find it since they know its used in traditional Japanese smithing. So does anyone know where I can get some. I am looking to just get two twists that are 12in length and wider than an inch. They are doing a ritual the beginning of next month and I have been given the job to locate it. So help will be greatly appreciated .
  9. Not to be rude, but this looks like an injury waiting to happen.
  10. How deep of an etch can the nitric acid provide on mild steel. Will it work with a vinyl pattern as the resist??
  11. hello, im looking to get a pattern cut out of some steel from a plasmacam, water jet or some other cutting service. I am using it for an embossing project and the aid would be really helpful. I am willing to pay for it. thanks Matt
  12. I agree, but an all steel hammer including the handle, god that would kill your wrist quick. But I wonder how that would work in forging knives. I guess if the hammer is held in a way one could forge a blade with a "hollow grind" edge with out grinding. but that's just me being foolish.
  13. well I know during the war, they would cut some swords tangs to make them to military code. And if it is one of those it generally has a price tag of $200USD to $400USD. But in my opinion id re-polish it and make a nice new shinny blade with it. But that's my opinion.
  14. what purpose are you looking to use this in bushcraft. most of my clients that are into bushcraft look for more of a skinner, or something with some heft. Generally my clients stay away from drop points and long straight edges due to the abuse. Other than that it is a very nice blade
  15. Hey take apart the old microwave and build a spot welder with it?? fairly easy due to these videos http://youtube/vrlvqib94xq
  16. I agree, this is getting kinda spammy. And having all the top tools will not make you a top smith. Ppend some time working on your blades with the minimal tools. Its how we all started out and it taught all of us more respect for the craftsmen of old.
  17. im looking for yellow brass and the alloy doesn't matter to me at this point in time , just so that I can melt it with my foundry.
  18. hello, im looking to buy some brass ingot or find a brass supplier. My usual supplier is being a major terd. So any help would be a major aid. thanks Matthew
  19. ive seen one of these before up in erie Pa. I live about an hour from erie. it was used way back in the day for harvesting Ice.

  21. hello, so as of today I have received 15 emails of people wanting me to build the wolverine class. I don't mean the kind that are fixed blades I mean pneumatic claws. I have clearly explained that they are illegal and considered as an AOW in the states, a primary assault weapon, and a concealed weapon. They are getting this idea from a new youtube video And I figured id warn the board of this annoyance . His design is interesting but in the state illegal. Take a peek
  22. hello, im having some trouble getting my pottery kiln which I picked up not to long ago to melt bronze for casting. Is my issue that im not giving it enough time or is the mech. just not strong enough to melt the bronze? thanks Matt
  23. no , this looks well. it gives me plenty of room for grinding modification, or forging modification . thanks what do I owe you
  24. wow that's perfect. to my understanding I need to give the company a 2d file. with the drawing outline and the thickness of the metal which is 3/16.
