So I took the 2 stacks of 9 quarters I Welded at the end of my last thread and welded them together and made this billet. I think this is probably the coolest thing i can do in my little micro forge, but bigger things are on the horizon.

looks nice! Patina is always the big issue to tackle once you can weld and get a good pattern. I hear there are some good commercial formulas, but they are way to expensive for me to try in Alaska.  I get pretty good results darkening copper with Ammonia fumes. Easy to go to long though, and it effects brass about the same as copper. Looks really good on nickel/ copper mixes.

(Wonder how long before he starts using fork lifts to put billets in his "walk in forges"...)

IIRC Manfred Sachse has a picture of a 1 ton pattern welded billet in his book. "Damaszener Stahl".
