Alec Steele Blacksmith 2020

  • This was a long time ago so probably a wasted comment But the way it looks around 9:10 makes me think of like samurai helmets. That would've been like a sick twist to it

  • you know, it's so much easier to mold it to your face when you take it out of the kiln, don't mind the heat it's just artist pain...it'll heal in a few years, it's fine

  • I don't know how many viewers are aware Alec, but you could have just layered pieces of steel vertically over the frame of the back of the head instead of- virtually everything after the framing...

  • You use a technique called dishing. It's how armorers make helmets. You basically put a ball on your anvil, put your project material on the ball, and hammer it from the outside. That gives you the rounded helmet shape. Look it up on yt. You'll see what I'm talking about. Like to see you try again once you figure it out.

  • I've never seen a better example of how being stuck on a method can really hinder you from finding a solution that works for you. Your view of it being hollow stopped you from thinking about how to temporarily have the needed form inside (such as using a raising stake). There was also probably some issues that stopped you from thinking about something like dishing to help you form it. You saw the ridge along the helmet as a support not a seam, making you think of supports in that direction, and your brain stubbornly stayed in that one orientation, giving you a taper in the radius you wanted to form, not the sheet you needed. But the most obvious one is when you kept trying to get a hammer on the inside with sufficient energy to swing it instead of getting something (once again, like a raising stake) on the inside while having the hammer on the outside to hit it. And this is why looking back on less than successful projects after a while is so good. You see the simple solutions that your brain was too locked in to notice. I feel if you had looked back over the video after enough time, you might have noticed this and screamed at yourself, "Why didn't you just do this?" but it's also nice to get someone pointing you in the direction so you don't have to wait for your brain to stop being focussed on the difficult way. You're clearly a good enough metalworker that if you had gotten pointed in the right direction, you would have had much less headache on this. Probably still had issues getting it to look exactly how you wanted it to and maybe not beautiful as your blades, but definitely gotten it close and as a really nice first attempt as an armorer, especially without a forge big enough to fit the entire piece or sheet stock of a workable thickness (both thin enough to form easily and thick enough to hold it's form)

  • It would've been impossible to forge the back of the helmet in a day, so the wire path was the right one. We're talking about hours and hours of drawing the bubble shame. There's a few vids on NOtown doing similar stuff with thinner material, and most of them entailed days in real life, including failures.
