  1. Looking to start blacksmithing and metal working for fun. Im just now reading the wealth of knowledge y'all have shared! Thank you so much!!
  2. Hey man! I am just building my forge now. I am super interested in smithing as a hobby and an outlet for creativity, something that i find lacking in my life. Im guessing from what little info you passed on about yourself, you have stuck with it and excelled. I live in meddie, near Phoenix. Would you mind if i gave you a jangle?
  3. Oh. Ok. Thats interesting how that works. I had looked into this when designing a shops ventilation system. It was particulqrly interesting that the given flow of a ventilation system would be effected (upwards of 15% loss of airflow) based just on the design of the intake manifold. I was bringing this point up because i thought some problems folks are having problems might be related to the smoothness of transitions. Little bumps or restrictions that would be easy to brush off might be having a larger detriment on the shstem. So these eddies are generated leas in a jet induction system vs a forced air scenario? Thanks for all of your hard work! I am new to this hobby/proffesion (depends on the individual) and i am so thankful and impressed how all of you folks share your knowledge so freely!!
  4. Bah-da-ba-ba-baaaaah. I'm lovin it you guys! Thank you for spreading the knowledge. Im a total newbie. Been messin around with a bunch if different designs just for fin while i get a forge underway. Just a thought i'd like to throw out there, and it seems you are already touching on it heavily, is that these designs are an expression of fluid dynamics? A heavily studied field. One of the more interesting concepts i've come across is "vena contrata". This is a realized aperture area decrease in relation to the design of its opening due to localized belocity increases around the opening that can be rectified witha "flared" opening. In this meaning the flare is best as a parabola. Check it. i This issue was addressed as "eddies" in the current. I think the visuals help to show what mr. Mikey meant
