  1. Having some time at hand i decided to continue whit the " less air" pointers which worked out almost perfect. But i have some concerns on the ricasso area where the weld dint stick even after centralizing the heat/flux and trying for a second time. OK so this is my project, spingsteel, mild, edge of twisted tool damascus This worries me, should a couple of days in some vinegar be the best approach ?
  2. I use propane the vast majority of the time because usually I'm only doing blades, but there have been some projects which I have wanted to do, making things for around the house like a new corner shelf for the upstairs bathroom and the like for which my propane forges are too restrictive in their size to do larger pieces of ironwork. I learned with coal and used to demonstrate with coal, but after I stopped demonstrating I sold my coal forge to another who was starting out. One of the problems with the old forge and most coal forges in general is they're big, heavy, and hard to move around
  3. I'm having a problem getting my forge to welding heat. It's made from a 5 gallon paint can, has a 2 inch think layer of durablanket, several coats of satanite and 3 coats of Plistix 900f. I have 2 burners, but running both kills my propane tank in an hour or two, so I have to stick with one. I get to welding heat at about 15 psi. With the setup that I have, is there anything else that I can do to lower the psi needed to get to welding heat?
  4. I've made a habit over the last two years to attempt a mild steel faggot weld every time I do some work. My literature gives an example of this as a way to building up material for a ball end of a doorlatch. (And yes, the example is with mild, not wrought) And if you could forge a ball from it, it should have to be a rather good weld. But I've never managed more than sticking it together so that when I put it in the vice and bend, it pops open showing the matte and clean surfaces I've tried a range of temperatures, all the way up to burning the corners. I've tried a range of mild steel origin
  5. I've been inspired by the current KITH and am wanting to join it. I just wanna make sure I can do something like a hawk before I join. Anyway, so here's my problem. I'm making a tomahawk in the same style as one posted a little while ago, (it was one of the firebeard guys I'm pretty sure) and I've done everything, including wrapping it around the rod, and placing the ends together. file://localhost/Users/neetjeapple/Pictures/Photo%20Booth%20Library/Pictures/Photo%20on%205-28-13%20at%208.34%20PM.jpg Then I tried welding. I got the steel (5160) yellow-hot, and tried pounding it toge
