Yet Another Video

Recommended Posts

In the early literature, this hot split method is shown, in Schwarzkopf for example. It requires precision and cleanup of the internal rags. Each strand must be equal in section, or else the thinner ones will move faster than the thicker ones, creating a messy basket.

I get a kick out of Schwarzkopf. He depicts and describes this same procedure in "Plain and Ornamental Forging," and finally says words to this effect. "...or you can weld it, which is easier."

Great video! Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and skills with us.

Traditional or modern doesn't matter to those of us that are just learning so long as we learn something. Later on in our travels we can pick and choose which we want to do.

I think it was great video and a great lesson.
