Frequently Asked Questions: The roller is long - but not a single stroke is missed on the steel.
The billet is soaked in kerosene. This is necessary for good welding (forging) steel.
During combustion, the soot remains, which upon further heating cement the surface layer of the steel,
thereby lowering the welding temperature and, in the process,
if rust or scale remains, restores it to iron.
I sprinkle flux (90% borax + 5% quartz sand + 5% charcoal powder) this is necessary for forging (forge) welding.
The flux is fused with scale
the formed substance is sufficiently fluid and is easily displaced by deformation.
the flux protects against oxygen and charcoal
carburizes the surface layer of metal
which lowers the welding temperature (if in brief).
The first welding is done on a tree,
as the tree does not take the temperature like an anvil and burns oxygen when burning
this is important for blanks with small parts (rope, chain)
