  1. Thank you all.

    Frosty and arkie, imports are kinda blocked in my country, I have to pay a lot of taxes (50% of the product prize). Plus, amazon doesn't make shippings to my country. But I'll look for them, maybe I can get a good deal. 

    I'll think about what you say, Frosty. You are right about what you say of saving time. To provide some context, minimum wage in my country is 280 dollars...I really need to think if I spend that much on my first brush, maybe I can learn a bit first (I'm a total begginer, I'm building my first forge right now) and "squeeze the juice" from it when I get some experience. I'll definitely think about it, though.

    You'll be blown away how well it works. The smaller brushes are still good for smaller work. 

    Sorry the intromission. I'm from Argentina, and where I live (and in my whole country, it seems) block brushes are impossible to find. Smaller brushes work well for removing scales? Is there any alternative to a block brush?


  3. Hi. Sorry for reviving this thread, but I'm looking for information, and don't know where to find it. 

    I'm from Argentina, and it seems that no one knows "block brushes" where I live. Is there any alternative for one? A normal wire brush is good, or is useless?

    I'm starting at blacksmithing, so I don't have any experience about this subject. 

    Thank you all!


  4. Thanks to all. It's a lot easier than I expected. Our soil is mostly sand, because Mendoza is kinda like a desert. Maybe I can found some good clayey soil near a river. 

    Bentonite is easy to find in hardware stores, I didn't know that is a good material. I'll try to get some. We use it here for wine clarification (I have used it, winemaking is one of my hobbies). 

    As you can see, I'm a newbie in blacksmithing (not only in the forum). It seems that blacksmithing community is really kind! Another reason to dive into this new world.
