    once you get above 1050 or start messing with any alloys you learn yellow is really the only acceptable heat to work it at, unless you're an idiot like me who tends to toast tool steel. That being said, if you're doing general blacksmithing its a lot harder than bladesmithing, which is 90% getting it flat and 10% getting it pointy, and your stock is *usually* closer to the finished shape.

    What kind of stuff are you making?

    I'm happy to get paid in (good) beer.

    The best part is experiencing things improve so quickly. Everything feels so seamless now compared to even 5 years ago.

    Just quit my miserable awful job that has been eating up all of my time. Stressing me out when I was there and preoccupying me to distraction whilst I wasn't there. A grey area in my contract meant I could give notice and just walk out today which felt amazing.

    Starting somewhere else, somewhere I want to work, on Monday.

    Not to rain on your parade or anything, but before too long more poop is going to accumulate on the inside of your body, and then you're going to have to do it all over again. I think the myth of Sisyphus might have been about pooping.
