    Is there a vlog where talk about what education is needed for learning this craft? Like with bookkeeping and business management, blacksmithing/ironworks? I’m very interested. You do great work and love the vlog! Im from California, but looking to move to Texas or Colorado, and have lived in Montana in my childhood. Not sure of my next move. But glad for you and your move to the states. Bravo! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    RE: lighting: Just had a thought, why not make a rig with a few lights on wheels so you can just take your lighting where you need it instead of needing a massive roof mounted rig.
    I don't know exactly whats required but my first thought is to use a 4x4 wheel as a base with some castors and then mount a 2" post in the middle and build from there

    At my current level of experience and expertise in mashing metal, I would just love to spend a few minutes doing a little dumpster diving at our shop to salvage some of the stuff you are throwing away. One man's trash...……….. Unfortunately, the commute would be a bit exhausting, South Carolina to Norwich(?).

    Hi Alec, I have watched your show with my 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter for over a year. My son wanted to write you and tell you he is sad that you sold your tools and that he loves your show. We all hope you find success in Montana. Thanks for creating such wonderful videos and teaching us all so much.

    tips for your light...:
    you want as big a lightsource as possible... so or you hang them together and light from a central (or moving) location, or bring them as close as you can manage. This will give you softer light and better controlable... now you have them far away so you've made them small sources, making them hard.
