    Man you call yourself a blacksmith but you go to the store for a key when you could Forge your own. I'm disappointed smh. On a serious note... What's the reasoning behind having a room dedicated specifically to grinding?

    As a very long time fanboy I’m sorry to see things change. But the USA will be soooo much more profitable with lower taxes....and you’re going to be close enough to me for me to come for any classes you may have... by the way.. Do you make SWAG on a swag block? (See American slang)

    All joking aside Alec, this is a really terrible time to be moving your business to the States, considering how volatile US trade relations are with the rest of the world just now. You might want to hold back until The Donald has gone, at least that way you may stand a chance of making a buck or two ;)

    You should have moved to sunny Southern California.... Although, I realize the cost of electricity, fuel, taxes. and overall cost of living will be far less in Montana than it is in So Cal where I live.

    Just curious, have you tried to drive a left hand drive vehicle yet? I was tasked with moving a few Minis a couple years back from one garage to another and they were right hand drive think they were (1970s), sat in the seat to throw it into reverse and It was at that moment I realized how foreign it was, using my left hand alone was very tough for me, also had to deal with a different reverse location than what I was use to. Might want to get some exp if you have the chance. Best of luck on your move!

    Hey man im going to be your neighbor when you move. im in ND. Maybe i could come do some knife forging with you or something as i've been studying blacksmithing for... 13+ years? something like that. unfortunately im a broke MF. maybe a new apprentice??? even though i already know what i need to know. let me know if this sounds like something you would be interested in. no im not currently a youtuber so i have no video but have been wanting to get into the blacksmithing scene for a long time.

    So £17,407, plus whatever other things you've sold have added to that.
    After VAT (20%) that's about £13,925.60 (again, plus whatever else you've sold).
    Not too shabby! Should make a nice little nest-egg for your Montana move.

    When you wrap a pallet start from the very bottom and work your way up (otherwise the wrap will start to climb and stuff can potentially fall off). Don't worry if you cover the holes, the forklift won't have any trouble getting through that.

    Sad to see the Big Green Elephant AKA Mr Pilkington go to a new home. Be prepared for much longer drives in Montana, lots of people in Europe don't grasp how large the US really is. It will be interesting to hear what you find challenging to adjust to, watch out for your left turns. :)

    Every time you celebrated the prices you were getting on eBay I winced, the fees you paid will be about 2 grand, shipping must have been expensive too, plus PayPal fees if you used that. EBay is great for buyers but sellers get shafted with 10% fees plus PayPal fees.
