    It is a product of your labor whether you sell it or not. I'm trying so hard to find a place to put my tools that I've gathered up over time. I haul them in the hatch of my car and find a place that's wheelchair friendly set up my tools but have to pack them back in car when done. I'd love to find a place of my own to do this full time.

    Working on my first forged leaf-spring chopper and I think I was not being as diligent with heat on the handle, meaning I think I whacked the handle when it was too cold a few too many times (I'm probably on my 30th heat ha! All that scale is helping my distal taper…)and now i have cracks in my handle… Was more diligent with the blade but we'll see what happens with heat-treat… Figured I'd run through my stock of free leaf-springs before I get some 80CRV2 which is still somehow 50% cheaper on the NJKB than buying from a local specialty steelyard?…

    As I said before. I'm really enjoying watching these videos of the course. If I was taking this course. I'd have so many questions for you.
    If I remember right. During normalization. You could hit the blade all you want and it wouldn't hurt it. Can you still take a chance of getting a crack?
    Thank you and can't wait for part 3. Take care and stay safe.

    "Yeah, We don't baton"
    That outstanding (abd wise) statement combined with the look on Jason's face was worth watching this video alone.
    That edge pscking thing was pushed Bill Moran I think. Applies more to wrought iron supposedly like in the old days.
