No more excuses about not having the right equipment lol. I'm going to make a hold fast like he was using. Reminded me of a shaving bench for wood working. 

Tanglediver, thanks for posting the video I love barbones smithing and the resourcefulness of his smithy. Goes to show it's not the tools that make the blacksmith.

I'm not sure if it's called a  sen but the tool he was using like a draw knife was also worth noting.

That’s the Japanese term, yes. Don’t know the Thai term.
