  1. I mean, I do not have any Latin schooling, but google makes that look funny vs. Carpe Frigus Finem. XD VS
  2. I am looking to cut my teeth on making some household tools, starting with a simple flathead screwdriver. I was considering getting some tool steel rods as the material (O1 or S7), but I was just wondering if it's strictly necessary and worth it to use fancy steels. Would mild (1018) work for a screwdriver head just as well? I have gone and searched for information on what material is used in professional (ie, craftsman, ect) and searched the forum to no avail. Just looking for opinions/advice. Thanks for looking! Carpe Frigus Finem!
  3. Hi all! I am just getting into the trade. Like, I have had a couple basic lessons and have made a bad leaf and helped make a bottle opener. Really new! I am working on setting up a little shop. I have an ASO (8 inch rail section that I need to mount) and a small forge (Whitlox Mini-Forge), a few hammers and one set of tongs. If there are any smiths that I can meet in the Beaverton/Forest Grove area, I would love to make some connections. I am in the mode of consuming as much media and watching blacksmithing as much as I can while I get a space setup to actually forge in. Looking forward to learning from and hopefully meeting some of you! **also, looking for an anvil.....**
