Apparently, anything from paraffin wax (canning wax) to soapy water to cutting oil -- and yeah, kerosene's plausible, isn't it? -- though I think cutting oil is less combustible and just as slick -- w ...

If it happens once more on the same knuckle, it'd be a -- quadruple effed. Coif Cool Smiley

Ran afoul of a kitchen rasp that way recently, zesting some lime peel. Bloody, that was. Lacerated, in a word. S ...

Sounds like you'd want a "push stick" then. The promo vids of course were running these very looooong coils of what looked like aluminum, seeing as it was so fast and easy to cut. All that ...

If they're unduly gnawsey in the jawsey, take a small flat file to them and knock off the sharpness. This is simplest with the pliers clamped in a bench vise.

Trying to experiment on silver wire, I would take aluminum-type speeds and set ...

Welcome and well come, Windweaver.

YouTube's a trove, ain't it?

I'm pretty much entirely an "I make armour" guy. So, steel wire, mailshirts, camails, and really any other resistant bi ...

Fabbing up thetas from the wire by welding, using a jewelers' tip to your welding torch (it's tiny), would be a good *modern* method of making them. Not medieval in the least.
