    A, was this an editing demo done by a prospect? The content was very "representative" of the channel and the cutting was snappier than in most other recent episodes. (Just asking!)

  • Earthenfist

    Why not punch and drift the holes for the hooks, instead of drilling? It's more fun SMITHING!

  • Hipolito silva silveira

    I want a bottle opener like that too !

  • Alan Dallas
    Alan Dallas 8 months ago

    You're the 3rd TheXvidr I've noticed that uses a Coffee press rather than a Drip maker(Drip coffee is for newbs). There's hope for the future of you young people yet.

  • EMSslim

    Forging seems terrible for your posture. You guys should try making the height of your anvil adjustable so you fan stand up straight instead of hunching over it

  • Kevin Toppenberg
    Kevin Toppenberg 8 months ago

    From an ergonomic standpoint, that anvil looks way too low. The working surface is down below the waistline. I see back pain in the future.... :-( But I'm not a blacksmith, so I don't know the proper height. It just doesn't look right.

  • Scott Burnett

    Alec, I’m just starting out and I’m curious as to what you do for a protective finish on something like that bottle opener? I have been playing with beeswax and boiled linseed oil. Oh, and get a Toyota Tacoma or Tundra if you want a Truck that will last! Lol. Thanks for doing what you do!

  • William Livingstone

    Would you need to heat treat those punch tools? Or would that make them too brittle?

  • Daniel Rawlings
    Daniel Rawlings 8 months ago

    I see you’re using desalt tools. I’ve been in the tool business since I was about 15 f21 now) and Have been wood working since I was about 11. I have some good advice for you and what brand tools to use in what situations.
    You see, what brand you choose to work with really heavily depends on what its purpose is going to be in your shop. If it’s just basic house hold use, and only going to be used once a month or so, I recommend Ryobi (Home Depot) Black and Decker or Hyper Tough (Lowe’s). But clearly you need something a bit tougher. Dewalt and Makita are both really good brands, the problem is that their internal mechanics are clunky at best. Dewalt is a better tool if you are going to be working in construction and you need to work quickly and get a lot of work done in a short amount of time, but has a reputation of breaking more often. Makita has better precision and has a reputation of lasting a really long time, but still falls short to my favorite brand, and the brand that I use in my shop, Milwaukee. It has a long shelf life, solid mechanics, and offers extreme precision and strength. I know I sound like a sales person right now, but seriously, from one maker to another, I highly recommend Milwaukee.
