    Very cool!!! That is one fat stack!!! So 51 layers, cut that bar into 5 pieces, stack, tack and forge down again, cut into 5 and repeat? 8 times?? Is my math correct???

  4. #14
    Check again, I think that was cut in 6 pieces.

    Ah, you're right! Forgot to count the middle piece...been a long day so far! So 6 welds then?

  6. #16
    In total there are 7 welds to get to the million + count. 1,057,536 layers when were done.

    Were on the final weld right now More pictures to come SOON!!

    Randy said he couldn't have done it without me. Hahaha. Yeah right! Thanks for letting me help with 190,000 some odd layers.

    You're right...I do look like Fabio!

    OK Guys! Randy Jr and Lefty wore me out over the last couple days!

    It was great to have Fabio over and we had BIG fun, Forging and grinding and heat treating and yep. He wanted to do everything at least once!

    Here are some more pictures from today. After Randy Jr got the billet over one million layers he added a little twist! Actually he did a really impressive twist. I took lots of photos of the many heat and twist cycles that he went through. I just love the look of these pictures so I added a bunch, something to make this one different from the last.

    Next post will have some pictures of him doing the final draw.

    Wow! Pretty cool images. Luv the mural on your press. Thx for sharing the photos. Best-

  10. #20
    After twisting this to a very impressive looking bar of damascus. The last step is to draw the twisted bar into a billet of damascus.

    Many, many heats and press cycles later and we have a finished bar of million layer TWIST!

    More to come tomorrow after we clean up the billet and etch to show the pattern.
