    I am making a mounting plate of sorts for this broke sander I fixed so I can put a bevel plate on it. That board goes in my vise.

    How do I make a sen?

    Yeah I was looking on there too. I think I'm just going to shoot for a higher hardness and start at 35° and feel it out. Thank you so much

    So this link seems to be consumed by adds. Is there any other sen making links or a picture?
  6. TY biggundoctor I'd be willing to trade if it was good carbon stock1075-95, 15n20, even but I am new to this and don't know anyone around town so any offers would have to come from you guys
  7. I don't have a lathe it is 12" × 5/8 I might just do what ranchmanben says it's probably the hardest steel in my shop BC of the tungsten
  8. I got my grandpa's tools when he passed away and I found a square stock of crucible Rex 49 what I gather from my research is that it's tool steel I was thinking of making either a hot cut chisel or a knife from it has anyone forged this steel before and know any heat treat info like air, oil, water quench and tempering and what temp for how long ECT Title edited to reflect common name of steel

    Making firebrick

    So I am going to have extra Mizzou castable refractory, does anyone know if I can just make a form and make a few firebricks? I'm switching to propane and am going for kinda coffee can forge but lined with 1'' kaowool covered with Mizzou! Can I use this homemade fire brick for the bottom and workbench protection?

    using normal wood

    So will cheap sunglasses work or do I gotta get the black safety glasses? and is this process gradual because there's never been a problem?
