  11. I used corn again yesterday at a festival. It sure draws a crowd..... I finally figured out a bit, but still a ways to go. I did get a piece of 3/16"mild to melt, and forged some things.....more experience needed.... Life is good Dave
  12. In my limited experience with corn is getting it to "coke" as fast as it burns......and in my rivet forge, I could not get enough heat to melt mild steel. I could forge with corn, but welding not in the cards for me at this time....any suggestions more than welcome. Thanks Dave
