  1. Thanks Samcro, and Jayrocko. Ya thats pretty wild James! I lived in GF too. Are you AF? I will post some pictures up of what I make for you. Others can critique it as well, that would be much appreciated. I'm gonna try two ammo can forges. One will be a smaller mini forge.. small insolated tube inside a 5.56 can with some kind of mount for my bernzomatic TS4000 torch head.
