    Had another little project, a companion set for a narrow boat. The tools are only 350mm long, overall height of set is 450mm.

    Get welding that billet and stop messing about with them knifes your only putting things off because you had the odd set back, if you won’t try soon I’ll come look you up and take a stick to you, be warned.

    Well yes that’s a bonus to have  some smithy breeze, it’s getting difficult to obtain now we used to buy it in loose 10 tonne loads and it was already washed that also unheard of nowadays, remember that a good flux is very important just makes things easier.
