My first trys at making crucible steel

Recommended Posts

So I have been playing around with crucible steel lately. The first two ingots i made were most likely cast iron and would not forge without cracking. The third and fourth ingots were still very high carbon but were about to be forged. I over heated one half of ingot 4 while forging and it cracked all over but the other half forged out well with better heat control. over all I will say I really want a forging press.

Edit The videos I posted are not showing for me. Are they missing? If they are what is the correct way to post a youtube video?

Cool! I don't see the videos there, though. I had to copy the embed link, paste it here, then go to the full editor and click the top HTML button on the top right for a video I posted here.

I do see the videos, but only after I get a message asking if I want to display all content, not just secure content. Must be a browser thing since we upgraded the forum to SSL. Unfortunately I don't know a blanket fix. :huh:
