    Alex - I install mirrors and windows for a living. You should use some mirror mastic adhesive to help hold the mirror on the wall. You will be sorry if you don’t. If something ever breaks the mirror it will shatter into large very sharp shards. If you use adhesive between the wall and the mirror, if it gets broken it will mostly stay together allowing you to clean the broken glass up safely.

    Serious question, why use propane and oxygen rather than acetylene and oxygen? Acetylene flames are about 2300 degrees hotter than propane. I get not using it in the forge, you could melt your steel, but wouldn't it cut better in the torches?

    Right: Nice hiking weather there to be sure ;) As an old outdoorsman from the PNW, May I suggest when You go hiking in future, You may want to bring along some essential gear in Your pack, such as wool gloves & face mask, space blanket, various signaling devices, [maybe a loud gun ] some drinking water, fire starter, some candy bars in plastic zip bags so bears may not smell You, a fire extinguisher sized flask of bear spray for when the bears smell You, [ they can detect prey from miles away You know ] perhaps 2 more dogs [ in the event it turns into a 3 dog night ] and above all else, a partridge in a pear tree)
    Happy Holidays... I always get a laugh from your vids )

    If you want more natural light in the grind room line the ceiling window cut outs with inexpensive Mylar film. It's sold as emergency blankets @ dollar stores. Just cut to size and apply. The good news is you can try it with thumbtacks to see the effect before committing to gluing it in place.
