Is the quality of this video about on par with what you would expect?



There is a swiveling tool holder shelf mounted to the far side of the anvil stand.. It can swivel to any given position around the stand.. (pictures on the trailer build thread at the last update)

I just swivel it under the pritchel hole and there is a little coffee can with water in it.. This particular water had borax in it so every time I'd pull the drift out my hands were so slippery..

The coffee can was a 5lbs 2.25kilo size.. ideally it should be flatter so the drift just fall in the water and cools off on it's own.. I had to swish the can around to get it cooled off and it was to narrow for me to reach in with my hands..

So I watch your video and taking note of how much effort your expending to create and move metal. Then I watch the video Gerry posted of the Russian fella creating Damascus knife blades and I have to wonder. Is there special Russian nuclear wood and low temp working steel that allow you to forge weld Damascus in a field? I'm not saying it can't be done. It just seemed to be a little to easy to me

Maybe I just make it look harder just to keep you guys guessing..

Once you start forging on your own it will all make so much more sense.. Cold rolled vs hot rolled vs other carbon and alloy steels..

FYI in the video there are no short cuts or left out scene's so the only parts cut out are the reheat times..

I love the guys wood fired forge.. Excellent design with a preburn area to get to the charcoal needed..

Damascus really is not that hard to make.. If you can forge weld and understand the process and keep everything clean the welds should be good..

Anyhow, once you get your forge up and get a little experience under your belt all the videos and tutorials will make so much more sense..
