    @facatube When you forge weld you need to use a flux. My best guess as to the type of flux used here , would be anhydrous Borax. Lots of smiths use it, some people even use the common home style Borax.

    That white powder…i think it is a kind of FLUX. It helps the metal to stick together.

    That is what we call PVA glue here in Australia.
    It should be the same over there in the usa. Its wood glue. Works really well..

    which is the dust you at the benning of your video?

  19. ArtistBlade1972 says:

    @cam131313cam I prefer tung oil mixed with a little danish oil for penetration. Give it a try you’ll probably like it. It also dries 5 times faster than regular boiled linseed oil.

  20. ArtistBlade1972 says:

    @RDPproject I feel sorry for ya on the moving thing. I just finished clearing everything out of my mothers old house so we could rent it out. That was one hell of a job man. Hope you get a nice place with plenty of shop room :)

  21. RDPproject says:

    Duuuude….dont hold any flame to it. Its OIL. It can be flammable.
    You just need to apply and let stand for a while. Even over night if you need to.
    Any wood will soak up a percentage of the oil. After it has stood for a while…use an old rag and whip off any excess and your done. As simple as that.

  22. RDPproject says:


    Thx mate.
    I hate moving house……dotn even know if I will have a workshop area at what ever new place im at.


  23. RDPproject says:

    Yeah I know DAVE…

  24. RDPproject says:

    What info?….probably best if you ask him mate.

  25. RDPproject says:

    I would be glad to Evan. But It will have to wait until the new year at least.
    I will be moving house shortly and dont know where i will end up. I dont even know if I will have any area to use as a workshop. Remind me again in January please. Rob
