John, did you get permission to present these projects?
Hot, dry, windy, red-flag warning for fires, fire restrictions in effect. Lots of haze in the air, fires here and there, need rain! Hope you guys get through this without difficulty. Ordered the book. Thanks and the best to you!
It's also on Amazon.
Pretty hot on the front range but not as hot as Kuwait! Get up in the hills do some fishing instead
John, thanks for the tip on the book. Maine is hot, rainy and buggy, we share your pain.. rgds Peter
Looking forward to the projects
Thanks again for your great videos. My biggest obstacle isn't material, money, or even skill development right now, it's simply getting time for the shop. My work just up is to alternating 7 and 6 days a week. But I imagine we'll see down in fall or winter. We make juice drinks. So I'll have more shop time then. It'll probably be in that time I'll get that package out to you I've been putting together. Nothin fancy, just the kinds of materials I get occasionally work let's me get from the metal dumpster. Some stuff I know what it is and will give all that info, some is a mystery and I'll ask suggestions on what you think it's best for. And I'll also be able to make some more of my own videos you might like. Have a great day and keep cool.
When it gets this hot...I just ignore the forge and come inside and watch John's videos with the A/C going!!!
Thanks for that John. Very inspired already.
Awesome sounding book, John. Stay cool, brother.
you sook! just leave the metal in the sun and think of the money you will save on gas
Nice this might be a book I end up buying.
Good call on writing them. Would be great if they said yes. Well I guess it would work in their favor too.
hope your figureing out what your going to do for 20k subs its not going to be long
I love new ideas ! I never make it exactly like it’s ever shown I always see it a different way artistically ... or I like the idea but could make it differently. I just love making stuff !
This weekend is supposed to be near 100 here and humid. Right now it's cool and raining. Great day for forge work, Saturday, maybe read a book on blacksmithing... Great tip John, thanks again. Stay cool!
The heat slaughters my energy. I think the temp got to around 95 today with near 100% humidity. Lighting the forge just isn't worth a heat stroke.
Very cool. I’ll check it out. Why wouldn’t they want to? I’ll likely buy it just because I want to learn more. Didn’t know about it until now.
7th1st That looks like another idea book for the library
Thank you sir you know I love my books. I was thumbing through my blacksmiths manual illustrated book yesterday
Great video Roy
Thank you Roy. Going to see if I can get some of these books.
Thanks Roy, the book recommendations are great. I am reading the modern blacksmith at the moment. Will look into these soon
I usually buy any blacksmithing books I see just to have them. Lol
Pena que não sei inglês, mas valeua ideia.
Lol... "No I'm not a librarian, but I play one on youtube"!
Looks like some good material.. I'll have to keep my eyes open.
Thanks for the video..
great help roy
Books? You mean those old things with pages that used to sit on library shelves in the days before the internet and YouTube? Didn't realize they were still around. Lolz. Seriously though, great video, Iron Menagerie looks awesome.
I got the art of blacksmithing and some others great books.
'NEW Edge of the Anvil' by Jack Andrews is a good read, as well as 'Blacksmith Shop and Iron Forging' by Robert Heath. My current "Number 1 be-on-the-lookout-for" book on blacksmithing would have to be 'Practical Blacksmithing' by M.T. Richardson (Editor). It was originally four books, but there are versions available with all books in one volume.
Thanks, always looking for more blacksmithing books to read.
New Edge of the Anvil by Jack Andrews and the Blacksmiths Cookbook by Francis Whitaker (out of print but worth keeping an eye out for) and of Course Mark Aspery's three book series.
Thanks Roy. You can use copyrighted material in a limited amount for purposes of review and comment. I will try to pick up these books.
