  1. Sure looks like a dandy business opportunity for some enterprising Australian smith!
  2. Please accept our apologies, but this detail has now changed due to insurance requirements.
  3. Please review and pass on: http://www.knifepurveyor.com/browse/stolen.aspx Thank you.
  4. I'd settle for folk using the proper term"diffusion" instead of the popular term"migration." But we can at least glean from context what meaning is intended, so I guess we'll just have to live with linguistic imperfection.
  5. If "one dimension of the cube is longer" then it is not a cube. You want references? Principles of Heat Treatment of Steel by Krauss. Principles of Heat Treatment by Gossman. Mechanical Metallurgy by Dieter.
  6. HORSE HOCKEY!! What part of "body centered tetroganal" do you not understand, Mr. Stells?
  7. Works for metal cutting lathes too. Must be a CL thing...
  8. Didn't Naz do a shrink fit w/ mixed media a while back?
  9. Rehearing five or six time to get the piece right-side-right on the anvil will result in backward-ness or upside-down-ism.
  10. A jack-stand? I wonder if my young friend could indeed hold up a corner of a vehicle... We'll have to try that.
  11. Respirators are all well and good, but protective gear should always be the last line of defense. It should be a suppliment to - never a replacement for - what are called "engineering controls." Examples include the exhaust systems described in this thread.
  12. Some of us still feel this forum should be about helping and supporting each other. Others will offer up different feelings. I just hope your pliers turn out to your liking.
  13. The bolster is indeed an official blacksmith tool. So is any other tool used by a smith. :)
