you know your hardcore when...

 

 

.... when you grind 3 knucles off and dont notice until your dad points out the fact that the water your dipping your work in has turned a light shade of red and so has the grinder.

 

 

 

.....while forging you cut yourself deep and first thing that comes into you head is "good thing this piece of steel is really hot" :lol:

I don't know, but I thought I'd add something over here too... I'm too hardcore to be contained by one thread, Alan ;)

...when you look at all the bleeding grinding marks on your hands and think "cool, those new 80grit ceramic belts sure take off a lot of meat real fast"

 

 

@ kyle: Good one, have you watched the new rendition of the "Treasure Island" lately?

 

I know what you mean about the ceramic oxide belts!! All my fingers have new skin on them now!! :lol: I shall have to watch the new Treasure Island...

You've forged in nothing but sandals and boxers because getting dressed would "cut into your forge time."

 

When you're forging, you use some charcoal ash as war paint :). (I know I'm not the only one who's done that)

This kind-of goes along with the shorts, and sandals:

i know what you mean. i drive my dad crazy, bear feet, bear back, only shorts. :)

 

but its funny the only time i get burnt is when he wont stop bugging me about "protective clothing" :huh:

 

and i get distracted and end up geting third degree burns(from the hot steel landing prefectly on top of my foot).

 

 

 

 

ps. ash is good for the skin and scaring little kids :lol:

When you and your wife are driving and you see some "goodies good for forging" on the side of the road and your wife says, "Don't even think about it."

Who; me?

Not realy related to forging, but when youre chopping limbs off bamboo and you nearly cut your finger off and say "Well, my knifes sharp."

you grind off half your fingernail on a finishing belt and only notice when your finger starts getting hot...

 

you can tell different types of steel by their taste...

 

you inlay one of your wisdom teeth into a handle....

Having watched government for some time, it has become obvious that our government is no longer for the people. If the current trend continues, it won't be long untill armed rebellion is required.

...when you see a lawn mower blade at the side of the road when you're waiting for the backup to move onto the exit ramp and you check the trafic flow to see if you have time enough to jump out and grab it.

Guilty. But in my defense, it was a giant bush hog blade that's eventually going to make lots of pretty knives when I get around to buying or building a hydraulic press or power hammer.

....when you hear on the news about the huge bushfire down the road, throw all the buckets you can find into the back of your car and go charcoal hunting.
