I got a first commission from a friend of mine, he wants and Irish scian im doing lots of research but to little avail. One of the things i want to do on this is to use a little bit of brass. I was thinking about using a 3 pound brass hammer from a hardware store but ive never worked with it before so i have some questions. 1 being how will this behave when forged do i need my gas forge set to lower temps does it move easy or tough. 2 would that cheap brass hammer be any good or is it a poor quality alloy. And 3 would it be better to just buy brass stock or sheets. if it is ok to forge the brass hammer down what are some pointers and any points in any better easier directions that might save me some headache?
