Here is an 20layer layup  with lawnmower blade as the center section.  Was an experiment to see if I could shear off 15n20 to get initials to stick around while forging. 

It worked partially, will take a little more but think I have it figured out..  

Then a few I am working on over time.

Neat idea. I would really like to see how that progresses.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

the J did come out ok.. The M washed out completely..   If I were to do it again I would use a special stamp that had a wider action. But welding the 15n20 and punching it in it sheared and was pushed down the amount of the character height.  Not perfect but it can be seen from both sides.
