    Folding sword

    I have a viability question for use. With the locking pin pulling towards your hand to release, how do you stop it from going all spastic if someone tags it with a parry? Yes, I checked the date. Still interested. Great concept.

    What's your day job

    Nice! I'm heading that way the last week of October. My brother still lives there and they're expecting kid number 4.

    What's your day job

    I'm a forklift (I pick things up, I put them down) at the local mechanic shop. I don't actually get paid but they give me scrap steel, knowledge and occasionally lunch. College dropout, Walmart janitor. I moved to work in the gas field near cleburne tx doing water transfer for fracture operations at about 20. Then became a bouncer and repo guy and ended up collecting a baseball bat to the head at 23. Results: TBI and a stroke after the fact. Currently on SSD in my 30s and trying to get back to real work. I've always wanted to be a blacksmith and tried to make a go of it for a while as a stock removal guy and some armor stuff, but finally got up to really forging things and it's awesome.

    Anatomy and a brief history of simple side blast forges

    When I was a kid we had an old pop-up camper in a fenced in area with a swingset.... I still have the "O.K. Corraled" sign dad made. (Ornery kids, according to my mother)

    Ideas for Christmas 2017

    Yeah, but I don't like many people so I don't have to make very many Love the suggestions, so they may get made. How would you curl the angle iron twists without getting a gap at top? I'm having that issue with plain twists when I try to make rings. The Nickel way It's practice for patterned knife billets too.

    What did you do in the shop today?

    Honestly, I can identify all the wildlife here, but I see a horse track and I'm just like... Horse. No further interest. Doesn't register in my brain because horses are someone else's problem!

    Ideas for Christmas 2017

    Yeah, but the shipping is considerably more than a 2 minute drive, last I checked. Haha

    No, but I will now. I think I may have also not quenched it at all, though if it is 1018 I'm not sure that makes much difference. Sounds like you're pretty busy! I'd love to see the pictures of your peppers and rasptlesnakes!
