  2. I'm a pretty industrious guy when I'm not in the smithy I,m working on my wife and I's car or the house or whatever.SO last week my hands got to the point where the were scabbed blistered and bruised, and I was whining about it to my wife so she made this solution for me and it was the best.warm water, hydrogen poroxide and olive oil. Olive oil you say? Yes it has anti bacterial properties.I've used it on all my tattoos with great results. I soaked for about 10 min while I watched Family guy. gigidy goo
  3. I was just at a safety meeting a week ago and I wish I had thw pic to show, but a man had slipped of a latter and caught his ring it peeled the skin back and wedged itself under the skin his skin looked like a loose sock.I've also had problems with chemicals reacting with the gold.I've been married 3 years and honestly cant tell you where my ring is.

  13. My first attempt at a real knife. The steel is an old pry bar. The handle is made from heart pine. The reason for the design is it's for my brother in law, who is a lobsterman. From what I hear, it's a common design for fishermen as a cut away. All the polishing and finishing was done by hand, due to lack of tools! Let me know what you think, guys! TIA

  18. I have some old brass pipe that I pulled from my house I've never really worked with brass so I heated a piece and let it sit for a day.The next day I split a piece and played around with it cold and with some slight heat,and it was just shattering.Is this stuff worthless,should I just scrap it?
