  2. It's been a while since I've posted here, and I've been busy. Some of you may or may not know I started a retail site www.metalsmithing-tools.com and I'm offering 20% off this weekend when you enter coupon code THANKFUL at checkout, as I'm thankful for all those who have supported me, other small businesses and local craftsman
  3. Patrick has some great points. Often in the winter or cold environments I keep a heatgun handy to warm the piece periodically. Obviously pitch reacts differently at different temperatures, and different recipes have different optimum working temps. Typically for fine detail you'll want a harder pitch, because you'll be using lighter blows, for heavier blows, you'll want a softer pitch Did you check out my videos? I have a few on setting metal in pitch http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=26875
