Hey everyone :) I am new to blacksmithing, and new to this community. I will probably not post much at first as I will be spending much time reading through older posts. But I look forward to getting to know everyone, and learn from your expertise :)

Welcome ostavela!

Sounds like you're on the right track. Reading BEFORE you post will save YOUSELF time! ...It also keeps those pesky curmudgeons away.:ph34r:

Welcome aboard Ostavela glad to have you. 

Reading to get a handle on a subject before diving into the conversations is a good plan. Don't believe that tool steel guy, the Curmudgeons are charming helpful souls, just great big sweethearts one and all. :) 

Of course ticking anybody off isn't recommended procedure. Ask C-1, he has the experience. :P

Been at the forge some yesterday, and this morning. Got a bit of rebar squared off. Not the most exciting thing ever, unless it's the first time you've done it :D

nice and clean. better to learn little bits at a time than to take a project that is to much for you and get frustrated.

Yeah... as much as part of me wants to go fast, I am intending to go quite slow... I have a propensity to learn things a lot faster than average, but I want to stay slow so I can get muscle memory and fundamentals to become second nature.

Hahahaha! I've already tried to go farther than I am able... my wife said she needed a hook for her workshop. I decided to try to make one. Pretty sure she would go ahead and use it, despite being butt ugly, but I made it slightly too wide... lol. Don't worry, I haven't discouraged myself! Now I have incentive to keep learning, so I can do it proper :D
