I forge welded a chainsaw chain together....

I have no pics yet... but I've been trying to forge weld something since my last post here.... and im so excited right now that all i could think of was to tell you guys.

My hopes and dreams are to make it into a knife. I will probably fail at that part... but. ..............

Good on you!! Now you know that you can do it. That is what practice does. It instills self confidence. Glad to hear that it took. Like the other guys said, when you get the blade working, take pics. We like pics. :)

GREAT! Now go do it again---and again---and again! After a while it will seem easy and natural for you and you can start showing others how to do it---not to mention making *everything* out of it---knives, axes, door stops,...RR spikes, hammers, etc
