Rich Hale Posted September 29, 2011 Share Posted September 29, 2011 One of the things that make this site such a great place to be is the constant flow of new folks that pass through or stay a while. And by the verly nature of beginning to learn about smithing in all areas, The very same questions come up frequently on the forums and in the chat room. Even though I am a wee bit further down the road from a beginner I enjoy reading answers from all of those willing to help. AS long as that continues lthe site will continue to grow. However very often I notice that some of the questions have been answered so plain and understandable in past answers or stickies that it is simply the best thing I can think of to refer to those tips. There always seeems to be and likely will continue to be folks that seems to me to not wish to do a little clicking and reading. They would rather one of us just off the top of our head type a readers digest kind of answer that will make them an instant success. This is likely just me but for instance someone asks about heat treating a blade or tool, The heat treat stickies are a great place to go. Much easier than me saying forge, heat, dip in a quenchant, temper and finish.. That is so shallow that it is almost worthless and even more so if ,,like a lot that we see,,The steel is not identified. And again for me. When in either the forums or chat room someone does not want to take a role in the learning process I punch the button and Say 'Done It even gets worse when they ask a question that we need more info to help with and then do not reply to our questions. Or they simplly leave the room while I am typing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
