I thought F&B stood for Fire&Brisket. Seriously, Doug. This is not just a hammer-in, it is a culinary experience and you are the master chef so I will arrive with an open mind and hungry no m

I'll be at ashokan, I'll try and make that every 4/5 years for the sword gathering , its a good time.

Noooo! I was planning leaving with a pile of his steel.

Sent my registration and payment. I think I'll be in washington DC the week before, and will check into my motel thursday night, so I can help setup tents and whatnot on friday.

 

You're welcome to stop by if you want if you find yourself with some time on your hands. I know a couple good lunch spots in McLean and Tysons.

Just talked to Aldo, the NJ Steel baron.
It seems he has a schedule conflict and won't be at the hammer in this year.
Usually people forging will buy steel of the truck or pick stuff up for their home shop.
So anyone who wants to forge might want to bring their own material and if anyone is thinking of bringing forging stock for tailgating that would be a good idea.
I might be bringing some W1 round bar if anyone is interested let me know.

Uncool. Years of loyal customers, shared libations, and brisket, and he's got a new sugar-momma worth blowing us off for? Uncool.

I can get my hands on 1095 and 1075 and bring it if people are interested in buying some.
I need to know ASAP.

Thanks,

I should have 1' pieces of both 1075 and 1095
1075 in 8/32X1.5

1095 in 3/16X1.5
Just a heads up for everyone.
I will also have some guard slot punches in H-13 and chasing gravers for closing the gap between tang and slot.
I should have some bladesmithing tongs and a couple other odds and ends.

Dangit! Now I have to waste money on UPS! I was going to call Aldo tomorrow to put in an order for delivery at the hammer-in...

So I have a bunch of high temp firebrick (the soft stuff) in odd shapes I was thinking of bringing to F & B. I'd like to get rid of it quite cheaply if people have any interest (like $2 for a normal brick and lower for odd shapes). A lot of it is full sized bricks with the long sides slightly canted in. It comes from kits to reline old oil burners (don't worry, NOT asbestos). If there is interest I'll throw a couple cases in the car...

Perhaps the best part of the entire weekend. No offense to the metallurgical talent and gracious hosts, but damn... that looks good raw. I cannot wait to taste it.

I think I'm ready to move past my canola quench but don't want to buy five gallons of the good stuff (I'd have to dispose of any excess when the military moves me again and I don't want to have to do that). Does anyone who is going to the hammer in have a couple of gallons that's been sitting in their shop that they'd like to sell? I'm open to anything better than canola (Parks, McMaster, etc...) and is fast. Shoot me a message if you're interested.
