  1. Ah, ok. Lesson learned! Many thanks, Joe
  2. Hi, I was hoping someone could help me with a problem. I am making a knife out of an old metal file which I bought from a car boot sale. Because I’m going to work it by hand, I tried to remove the hardness of the file in my homemade charcoal forge. I got the file to a bright yellow in colour, but when I removed it, it seems to have broken into two pieces, and partially melted! There is also a mound of metallic stuff attached to the bottom of my forge. Is there a reason for this? Did I screw up somewhere? Do you think the steel is still salvageable? Thanks, Joe
