            Alec, you could forego the oil and rust inhibiting paper, with a nice coat of Cosmoline.

            It kept soviet Era Mosin Nagants rust free for about a hundred years, just saying.

                      do you publish a discography of your music? one of the things that's really quite ingenious about your videos is how you match the music to the action. I'd appreciate a discography...thanks.

                                  Cant stop thinking about a merge of youtube blacksmith's and a Forged In Fire collaboration, would be so fun to see all you youtube smiths in a Forged in fire special episode! If not, could we please see you two duke it out in a old fashion smithing contest!

                                    **You NEED a big-a$$ timer in your shop** that way when the alarm goes off, you know when things are ready. That whole memory thing isn't working. If you're selling products you build, the last thing you want people thinking is "I wonder if he tempered this tool long enough".?? Again: great show. Like your work.

                                      Hey Alec Next Level Carpentry does a video where he shows how to get any radius sanding block he needs by using pvc pipe and he just cuts a slit in it that you put the sandpaper in, and of course you can get just about any radius you need

                                      P.S. thank you for trying to say aluminum right the first time😋

                                                                              I am watching your YouTube videos since you publisched the video of forging the large damascus chopper in your first Shop and I really enjoy your videos and when I was 13 you woke my interest in blacksmithing with your amazing handforging, your liveshows, etc.. I am now 16 years old, I am still forging and still loving this craft. I also like your work in the craft of knifemaking, but I would really appreciate to see you do some more 'oldschool' forging projekts the way you started. Thank you for your videos and your inspiration,

I'd like to get into blacksmithing as a hobby and would love one of those heavy duty aprons.
