    My name is Alec Steele and I am a 21 year old blacksmith from Norfolk in the United Kingdom, now living in Montana in the USA! I upload a vlog from my day at the workshop almost every single day. Lots of sparks, lots of making, lots of fantastic-ness. Great to have you here following along!
    What do I make? LOTS of Damascus steel, knives, swords, axes and more and of course, I always love hearing your suggestions for future projects in the comments below!

    Hi Alec. The formula for working out what different elements do in a steel is called carbon equivalency. It's used to work out how a certain type of steel is welded.

    When you first said “squish” I thought you would go to the press first. I notice you almost use the power hammer exclusively. Do you not like the press or do you have each machine set up for a certain task? I can’t afford a decent power hammer but a decent press is doable.

    You don’t necessarily need to forge it. High pressure rolling to diameter, them machine the pieces to make an end mill. Obviously you can, as you proved in your video. But I’ve actually had the opportunity to tour a facility that made machine tools. They pulled & shaped steel, like you would make gold wire. Was very cool

    Pleeeeeease. ....... ditch the awful music! Just commentary and content please. Apart from that, I enjoy your videos. : ) Give your video editor a talking your to or sack him! Why would you just make a towel hook from that excellent quantity steel. Surely a knife of some sort would have been a better choice so that you could have experimented with the heat treating / tempering. It just seems a missed learning opportunity.

    So when your looking at steels with other elemental additives. Look for the carbon equivalency. Adding any intermittent element will discourage dislocation and make the steel act like it has a higher carbon content as well as add other attributes. Silicon makes steel have more flow ability and weld ability. Boron added in high amounts make a steel brittle, but in small amounts makes it tougher. Basically, all your're looking for is 'Carbon Equivalency'

    Really enjoyed it! Keep it up

    I'm guessing that the tungsten present (which has the highest melting point of any conventional metal, at somethink like 9k freedomheit) may indicate that it was a powdered steel, which if true, could mean it was sintered rather than forged, and then milled to shape rather than worked.
    So, before watching the vid, my guess is that NO, it won't forge very well.

    Alec, when you were testing out the power hammer on that steel and said you were going to make something, I thought you were going to make a blacksmith's wand. That may be because today I watched The Crimes of Gridndlewald, but that might be something for you to make. A Harry Potter wand that a blacksmith might have. Maybe a hex bold handle, or that end-mill would have been cool.
