    The bowl looks great and the oil can is a good score.

    I also watched Jason's video and researched the spray patinas he used. They look promising but I wonder ho well they work when applied with a cloth. It seems a spray bottle can lead to a lot of waster.

    I was wondering the same thing. He had a lot of streaking, too.

    I've applied Cold Blue with a brush and q-tip, and not had any problems with streaking or the like, so I think that patina stuff should be relatively okay to apply similarly. Of course, I've never done any large pieces like he did and wonder if there might be an issue with lines appearing wherever you overlap. Gonna have to give it a try, I guess.

    I like that little pumper.



    “Precision” in my shop isn’t critical. It tends to be of the farmer/blacksmith variety. Lol. (Oops. No offense intended, Vaughn)

    They are very thorough (apparently). They will even clean your wallet.

    Re: Blacksmithing and forging

    My latest attempt at blacksmithing. This is just a mock up and chance to heat and beat some metal.

    A friend wants a "manly" bracelet.
    Unfortunately, he only gave me a total circumference and requested 1" gap.

    I used a piece of 3/8" mild steel round bar and my wrist as an example. I will try the final piece out of some stainless round bar so it does not rust.

    He is short and muscular so the radius of his wrist is probably greater than mine.

    Re: Blacksmithing and forging

    Looks great! I tried getting into the bracelet business awhile ago, but not having the person "on hand" to try it on was always problematic.

    If you ever run across any old cars, the drive shafts make very nice bracelet material. It's just hollow pipe, but it's pretty thin-walled and easy to bend cold so your customer can tweak it a bit on their own.

    Re: Blacksmithing and forging

    Well it turns out his wrist is about the same size as mine. He likes to wear it right at the wrist joint and not above the joint.
    I used an old 316 series stainless U bolt and straightened it out. Then on to shaping and engraving the word "TRUTH" inside it.
    I am waiting to see if he wants it polished or left a bit rougher.

    I love it and never even thought of that.

    I will make sure I let him know that's what he is doing.

    That saying “The truth will set you free” is a fairy tale and I have real life experiences to back it up.

    It is snug and a bit of a pain to get on and off. That is what he wants though. His wrist is a bit smaller than mine so it should be fine.
    He also wanted it pretty tight so it does not rub or bounce around when he goes on a run.
