  • The entire time u was watching this all I could think of is use the lathe. Surely you could modify the setting to a large threads per inch and stick a scribe on the end to etch the dykem. Then turn the lathe down to its lowest rpm and use a round file or the dremel and cut the 2 flutes. That way it's held securely and because you have perfectly even lines that wrap around it you would have it looking symmetrical from the start. Or just get a small lathe chuck, a motor and a variable speed control and mount it to the jewelry bench for easy part rotation while cutting.

  • please stop taking sponsorships from MMO games. Two years ago I was an active maker, drawing inspiration from youtube at night when it was too dark outside to keep crafting. Then one day I got trapped by one of the game ads on one of your episodes. The game swallowed me whole, demanding (other humans, not the game itself per se) interaction during daytime, and ultimately almost around the clock. This ruined my everything (except my bank account. Luckily I was already broke, so I stayed in the F2P stage). Anyway, it effectively stopped me from crafting, and I'm slowly recovering now. Oh, and I stopped watching and liking your videos too for a long time, because I didn't have time. All the time that I otherwise spent on youtube, had to go to that dumb game... This means that for every ad you do for such a game, you are losing viewers and thus losing income. In the long run, you'll lose more ad revenue from viewers than what you gain from the sponsor...

  • When you can't draw, it helps to just grid draw, you are onto something with taking out the design in chunks. but if you grid draw you can get a better looking design since you are looking more at the grid. might be a bit hard to explain lol.

  • Rotary tools are excellent but the slipping is the big issue, so to prevent this ether have support stud or such witch you can hold the grinder against, so it wont move side ways, or do it old fashion way with files and chisels.

  • Would it be feasible to use a piece of wire to make an even wrap around for drawing lines? Watching this made me think that you could do a 2 monster flute for the big part and then a 3 monster flute for the smaller part.

    John RauJohn Rau2 måneder siden
  • I am fairly certain that the handle on the original isn't carved- it's probably actually a thin shell of silver that's been chased and repousse'd over wax or lead, before being fastened onto the handle.

  • If you have some finesse on a belt grinder, you can create those initial flutes with the edge of a contact wheel. It’ll save you a bunch of time and with a little practice it’ll probably be cleaner than with the die grinder

  • carving seems to be different than drawing. You should carve like you are working with the mill or lathe. If you take a shallow pass as a guide that you can correct with each pass until you reach your desired depth and width.

  • Dear Mr. Steele I was wondering if you have researched Alfred Pendray, Wootz , Also the process of making bainite steel. maybe the to processes can be combined to make an awesome blade. Not sure if this would interest you or not but thought maybe it would peek your interest. By the way the wootz get you the metal to make the blade, the bainite is a quenching process to make mild steel if I understand correctly turn mild steel to a similar tensile strength as titanium.

  • Amazing video and piece of work Alec, i'm anxious to see the next episode. But just a quick word, i respect your opinion so much, for exemple when you first did a Kove headphones ad i thoght "its just another ad, he probably wouldn't ever use that much", but here we are and you used them so many times. That proves to me that you really wouldn't recommend something to us without really like. I'm craze to buy one headphones like that just becouse of this atitude (unfortunately i'm brazilian so would cost a arm and a leg to buy and ship to here :'( ). Keep this sincerety of yours.

  • Next time use two colors and draw through, like an x-ray. Also, some clay and making a rough model to help you see where the masses are , then you could add your detail as you go on the real one. I have admittedly never done this but that is how I would try to do it.

  • You need to invest in a high quality die grinder like Atlas Copco LSF. Its like night and day when working with rotary files. You might also need a larger hose to feed the grinder. When it starts you can hear the rpm drop instantly. The lower rpm and loss of power will make it catch a lot more on the part. Love to watch the progression! What makes it really interesting is your ambition for perfection 😅👌

  • YO Alec I notice you enjoy video games cause how you always support them on your channel so I thought I'd recommend an amazing but old game for play station 1. Its called Vagrant Story and the reason im recommending it is because of the weapon crafting system in the game. Why you would care is because in order to become stronger you have to craft your gear by disassembling swords and combining blades (iron, silver, bronze, Damascus etc....) when its complete you create a whole new design for the sword! I think it could give you endless ideas for forging please check it out!
