Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Good thought there.
Might also consider using refractory material to surround that pipe.
You will lose less heat and it will maintain it's heat more efficiently.

I've made pot style and tube type forges, with forced air and gas.

Open top coal, coke, or even charcoal can be used.
It's a challenge, any way you go.
It is also addictive!

Default Nice work...

Nice work on your first knives. You really improved on the second blade, much nicer grind. Do you plan on making knives for anyone or are you just making personal use blades?

Nice Bowie, I like the sheath too. I like automobile leaf springs for stock. It gentles down real well after being red & comes back real well when tempered. Its also very forgiving if you get it wrong.

Yep, those leaf springs make for great material, properly re-tempered.
Some of them have a lot of metal that can be 'moved around' also.
