  1. I had issues with that when I started forging. I was welding re-bar handles on with a stick welder with 1/8" 6011 rod. I switched to 5/16" 7018 rod and a little more amperage and quit having problems.
  2. Over the last few months Shane Taylor has been teaching me to build a liner locker. I've been building one of his designs at his shop whenever he, his brother and I can all make time to spend a day in his shop. It's been going great, and I can't believe how much he has taught me. I'm almost done with it, just one more day I think. But we've only been able to get together one day every few weeks. In the mean time, I started my own in my shop. Well mostly in my shop. I had to take it to Shane's shop to thin down the blade and back bar on his surface grinder. My messed up maker's mark... I don't like the thumb hole, and I double stamped my maker's mark, as well as a couple other learning errors, but other than that I'm fairly happy with how it turned out. Blade: 1084 Back Bar: Heat Colored 1084 Liners: 15n20 Scales: Camel Bone Over All Length: 7 1/4"
