I have a couple of fire spinners that want me to make them some lengths of byzantine. I'm thinking about getting 16ga 1/4" stainless from TRL (i think it's 16swg, AR of 4.2), and i was wondering: ...

One thing i like about the 18 gauge from TRL is that it is very strong for as thin as it is. If you wind it a bit smaller than 1/4", it might work for a euro 4-1 coif.

It's good stuff. You can request saw cut. It will cost a bit more, but i reckon it's worth it if that's important to you. I've been thinking about trying some saw cut, but so far i'm pretty happy with ...

Yeah, i was thinking heat anodizing. Have used flame, some nice colors, but not very consistent at all. I've seen the electrical setup instructions, and i intend to build one eventually. But for now i ...

Rock out, or watch a movie. Or go to a diner and chow down (we do this all the time, lots of people stop and oooh-aaah). If you do eat and mail at the same time, make sure you wash your hands. Not so ...

Somebody told me that a pressure cooker would get hot enough to anodize titanium. Does this sound plausible?
