  1. I'm welding with a MIG. I'll definitely try with the method you listed. I didn't even think about forging in the weld. Or normalizing.
  2. Hi everyone, Lately I've been welding a bit of rebar to whatever I'm trying to forge. My problem is that usually by the third or fourth heat the weld snaps and I'm left with a partially hammered piece of steel, a separate piece of rebar and a strong feeling of contempt. I feel like I'm doing everything to create a strong weld. By metals are clean, hot to the touch and beveled to add surface to the weld. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
  3. Thanks for the tips and kind words Doug. I have to admit that I made a chefs knife in a class a few months ago but this was my first venture on my own with my own tools. Read a lot of the WIP s on this forum helped a lot.
  4. Thanks to you guys I saved a lot of time and effort but I realized sooo many things I'd do differently already.
  5. Forged this guy out of a piece of leaf spring. I used black walnut for the scales.
