Ashokan Sword 2016

Recommended Posts

 

(I grew up in Albany and don't really want to go back anyway....)

 

That is a pretty good idea. I grew up just outside and really don't enjoy drifting back into the 518 area code.

I'm just getting back from JRTC. I don't think I'll have time to make something for show and tell...screw it. Maybe I'll just brew some beer. Hands up if you're interested.

Sam and I are thinking of making sword heat treat barrel furnaces for sale.
We are looking to see how many people are interested.
This is a standard 50 gallon drum sized furnace.
All you need is a burner and your eyes or a thermocouple.

I will also have Z style flat bar tongs in 1 and 1.5 inch sizes for sale and maybe a few sets of pickup tongs.

The furnaces will be ready for a burner. Highly recommend a Trex 3/4"

Hi guys. While I did register, circumstances have changed for me so I can't attend. Have a great time. Please take lots of photos and share!

 

I wonder if anyone can use my slot, since I paid for the full weekend? Does anyone know Tim? Perhaps they could ask him. I'd love to donate it to someone that needs it.

 

Anyway, enjoy gents!

Damn Dave! I was looking forward to seeing you again. I had a great time watching you and Pikula et al work to the German striking cadence.

Miss you there, bro. For sure. Justin always takes a boat load of pics, though.

I am, officially, out too now. We'd hoped my wife would stabilize, but that's not the case and I'm needed here. Please, someone take lots of pictures and video, and post them here, if you could.

I will make it my duty to take more photos than I ever have before at Ashokan, and more video too. Accuracy by volume, take enough shots, and I'll be bound to get something good.

I'm officially registered and plan to be there. Like everybody else I'm praying to the forge gods that I'll have something interesting to show when I get there...

 

I'm really bummed that Dave and Chris won't be able to make it. You will both definitely be missed. Many toasts to you will be shared by us all! I'm a crap photographer, but I'll try to remember to bring my good camera and snap as many photos as possible in the hopes that I'll capture something worthwhile for you guys.

Remember to bring your swim trunks, wood fired sauna will be fully operational I trust. European style is personal preference
