      It’s a supplied air respirator. Basically it pumps fresh filtered air into the mask for him instead of using a traditional respirator. They are very handy and worth the investment if you do a lot of shop work.

    Watching people attempt bearing knives on FIF, it seems that everyone moves the steel too much initially causing stress fractures. I think more heat and a more conservative approach is needed

    For the woodworking part can I suggest you make or buy a hand plane and chisels? If sharpened properly which should be easy for you it will save time, effort and a lot of sanding as a proper sharp chisel will leave an almost mirror shine on most hardwoods.

  • Cowboy Randle
    Cowboy Randle 19 days ago

    I’d say another 10 minutes is acceptable. Having to constantly move the camera, set it up, etc. and if you didn’t constantly look at the clock and just set it to ring whenever time was up you’d have some extra time there, and if you would have just talked to the camera while working instead of stopping to talk

    Credit for an additional few since cameras follow you and you’re not needing to credit supporters!!! I’d give you the 30 for doing the job as a camera man + contestant!!!
    IF you do this agai... I’d say offer your self addition time for the extra work you have to do with the camera to bring your superb content!

    Well Alec, due to catastrophic failiur we have to ask you to leave forge, and Ben is going to tell you why
    As you can see Alec. Your blade passed the sharpness test, you have a well balanced knife and a beuatifull structure to it. But in the strenght test on the 3432 hit your blade showed weakness right here ( Shows the crack ). And thats why we want you to surrender your blade and leave the forge. You are not the forged in Fire champion

  • James Watts
    James Watts 4 months ago

    It was certainly still hard so it must have been a stress fracture in the blade that caused it to break. Doesn't look too grainy at all so it's still got a decent carbon content in it and it's still very sharp. Your blade will cut.

    The guys on the show also don't mess around with the breathing respirator. And a lot of the guys just drill out their guards. Had you of cut them factors out you probably would have made it with time to spare. Other then that and the failure.... It was still a awesome job.
