    I have a sneaking suspicion that there are a number of neophyte blade makers on the site that would like to see that forge in detail--

    I love swords and would definitely be interested in a viable home-made forge.

    Yah..he just wants me to take my whole life back to basics.. I like technology.. but being in tune with a stable point of existence, I'm finding, is ever more essential to sanity.

    Yep I like to keep you on your toes[winkthumb]

    Funny thing is a lot of folk I know think Im insane because I like to make things rather than buy them.[loco]

    They are like there he goes back into his workshop to make something that I can just order from ebay[dunno]
