Whats going on fellas? I am from Shelbyville, KY and honestly have not really smithed any thing yet. I have helped some friends do some castings, but I think I got the "bug", My grandfather gave he an old Miller stick welder from the early 70s which means it will last forever and I started my first welding project, a smoker. I do enjoy working with metal, some of the best days at work is on the manual Mill or lathe making "Custom" or "Just get that <blanking> job done parts." Any ways, I been planing ahead to make handles for my smoker door because I am getting pretty close to that point, so I got some 1/4" round bar, used my acetylene torch and did a simple handle braid. Now I am hooked already, bought more metal and have several ideas on the ways to make this simple braid even more cool. (at least in my mind) So i am sure in the next coming months and weeks I will be going to flea market and see if I can pick up any old black smithing tools and reading this forum for the tons of information that is available. See you around.
