    Well it's not something I have ever reflected much on though I am not sure I have use the word heterogeneous much in regards to metal. The confusion might stem from most people subconsciously have milk as a reference.

    I guess I might describe a metal matrix composite or cast iron as heterogeneous as they involve materials with two constituents evenly, more or less, distributed. However, if I was melting in a medium frequency induction furnace which stirs the slag into the melt evenly from top to bottom I do say it is a homogeneous melt.

    I guess for metallurgists the opposite of homogeneous is in-homogeneous not heterogeneous. Just that simple. :-)

    We re-forged the wrought iron and put it with some other old wrought iron from a wagon wheel. You can see some layering even though there are only 7 layers. We'll draw this out and restack and re-weld. Then it should be ready to sanmai.

    Very cool stuff, Hoss. Your shop and tools seem to be in incredible shape, which says a fair bit about you. I wish I was neater, but alas....

    Just thinkin', you should get Mike Davis to paint for you.

    There's a huge mental and emotional component to physical recovery and healing so I can see why even though the doctor hasnt given you the clear yet, getting back to what you were clearly made to do could be very therapeutic.
    Thanks for the WIP and I hope you're back up to 100% Hoss Power soon.

    "100% Hoss Power" sounds like a great idea for a t-shirt to me.
