    I want to personally call attention to and thank you for using the pole to prop up the flags to help assure no flags touched the floor when you were taking them down. That puts you on a whole different level in my book and that, earned you a new subscriber. Thank you, Alec for taking care of our US flag and your UK flag. You're a good man in my book.

    I envy the long time fans of your channel. They get the emotion of watching the end of a place they've come to know.
    I only started watching recently (a few days before cavalry Sabre episode 1 actually) when ZNA productions mentioned you in a video, and complimented the hair. I've decided to watch this journey in order as I wait for the next episode of the Sabre just so I know how the new workshop came to be

    Hey Alec, is there a reason why you took down the Danish flag later than the other flags? Are there Danes in your family or was it just because of aesthetics reasons?

    Off the wall question for anyone. The framing lumber used in the wall that was knocked down and used as bracing in the crate looks very close to the US standard 2×4. What are the main standard lumber measurements in the UK?

    After U finish moving U should make a pig sticking knife. It's around 9inches pretty thin has a big thing that stops your hand from slipping of the handle when it's all bloody(don't know what it's called) and has a little Grove down the centre to help blood flow. I think it would be a cool challenge that would be great for U.

When I was stationed with the U.S. Air Force in Montana, my first day it was -90 Degrees Farenheight including the chill factor. Montana is a beautiful state however, you have two seasons, Winter and July. Bring your fur lined jock strap!

    You remember the titanium and steel video? You should melt the titanium and steel until it's molten, and while it's molten pour the molten titanium and steel together and pour it into a mold and see if it works.

    Alec for your new shop (assuming there will be one, of course), might I suggest doing a curved cut down the middle of the concrete blocks you use to close the forge while it's fired up? Then, with a small gap between them to allow space for the rod, your signature "S" logo will be visible with the fire of the forge!
