  2. So i decided to help this one kid make a machete, i took some old circular saw blade steel (dont know what steel it is). I've done the rough grinding, still needs to be heat treated.
  3. I am really considering making a gas forge, and i thought if i could use the stoves upper open part as in the photos, i can make a pretty decent forge. Luc
