A little shop time [Sep. 10th, 2011|05:16 pm]
Doug Ayen
Spent about an hour in the shop, then realized that it was just too hot and humid -- the thermometer on the wall read 95, and sweat wasn't doing that evaporative cooling thing.

Still, I managed to do some more drawing out. This billet is quite heavy now -- according to the new scale, 1.5kg. The billet has developed some cracks around the edges, which means I was probably working it too cold in any case. I still have at least 4 more folds to go, though, so those can be worked out.

No new injuries. Off to BurgerfestII.
