    What's up guys?! I've been wanting to make this video forever and really happy it's finally done. I hope it helps answer all your questions! If you have any more questions, just reply to this comment and ask away. I have to run out to the Chiropractor, then film a video with Cody's Lab, but I'll be back to read them all later tonight. Happy Casting!

    Is there not a way to use fire and no propane? I mean they made swords in the Medieval era and they didn’t have propane then.. do you know the absolute cheapest broke person way to make a foundry that will support the use of just fire ?

    Fascinating but really reinforces the advantages of apprenticeships to pass on skills so that one is not always reinventing the wheel
