  1. No need for apologies. I appreciate the genuine concern and help. I haven't seen the new Conan movie, I have a feeling I would be quite disappointed as a fan of the original. I'm definitely working on connecting with nearby groups as much as I can. I am also intending to learn both blacksmithing and casting (of a variety of metals). Bronze and aluminium are my intended starting points, I'm intending to try to build robust things as I go that I can replicate when they fail or need reworking that can handle a variety of tasks. Since we're talking low quantities I feel that electrical is the

I have a strong interest in blacksmithing in general, and a strong desire to melt down metals and turn them into things.

I haven't found a nearby source of bricks, the lower temperature ones are pretty common, but it's not my main concern as they are at least something I
