    You should make ‘Steele’ toed clogs by forming a sheet Steele cap over the toe! (Safety first!)

    We don't have proper fish & chips here in the USA so on one of your fabulous luncheons, do show us what the real thing looks like. OK, so you can skip the Guinness stout and the Newcastle ale, on account of your needing to go back to work. But while your're eating, don't mind my writhingly screwed up face, as I pant it total jealousy.

    I do paving, eating in the extreme heat 101 breakfast = fasting, lunch = protein mostly in the form of chicken for me at least. carbs come in either baked sweet potatoes or baked potato wedges. bland yup but feeling sick is no fun things are dangerous enough no need to feel sick becuase you decided to eat some chips.

    I am really curious if due to You being right handed and using hammers with Your right hand only, do You suffer from disproportion of Your arm? Saying short, could You flex Your upper parts a little so we all can see how does this amount of lifting and smashing a hammers affects Your body built 💪?

    you ever thought about forging your own spokes shave and using it on the handles for fitting and finish. I have found that my handles tend to have a much better feel with a spokes shave than with just sanding and grinding.

  • Kevin Powell

    Is there a place I can order some of your hammers, I would love to buy a set..!!

  • Scott B
    Scott B 2 years ago

    So what does a guy have to do to get a two pound rounding hammer from you. I mean can I order one, and would it be reasonable to ship to The States? I could get one from the farrier shop I get my other tools from, but I like your style and it would be cool owning and using something you made.

  • Carl Callaway

    I'm so fucking jealous. there isn't any blacksmiths in the south of England and you found a workshop full of 'em!

  • Dan Letkeman

    Just a tip for editing; it's good to make sure that the music is not significantly louder than the dialogue.
    Dynamic range compression means you don't have to adjust it manually.
    Really enjoying your presentation though!

    I wish you could see Van Tuyl and Fairbank Hardware in Petrolia Ontario Canada. I believe they are the best steel supply around. Still have dirt floor and date back to the discovery of oil in Canada. Still going strong!

    If you don't eat carbs at all or at least eat complex carbs, you will have 10x the energy and feel way better, eat a lot of veggies protein and good fats

  • William Burton
    William Burton 2 years ago

    If you do increase the amount of protein you eat on hot days just remember that you'll have to drink more water as well because protein takes more water to digest; which can be an issue on hot days doing hard work. Seeing someone with heat-injury is ugly, stay safe
