Messed up folds

Recommended Posts

Hello i am still new to this sight and making Damascus. I have been reading past posts and found them helpful. But have not found my specific problem.
What i am working with is a small billet of metal banding and saw blades. My first weld went well at least it seemed to and so did my second what i was trying to do when it went to pot was square up my billet when i laid it along the sides it started to split along the edges. I am working with a gas air dull arm vintuie burners and about 25 psi of a 200 lb tank working my billet at about a light Orange heat any help would be greately appreciated. also maybe it messed me up because i included 2 small thin pices of stanless in that billet
