Up the proverbial creek
Dunno if anyone else caught this (I nearly didn't) but it was in Sheffield, and included making cast steel which came up in this thread. Thanks to Steve asking the question my attention was arrested by the mention of blister steel, so I hung around to see the rest including a few brief and tantalising glimpses of the Hawley Collection; shelves and shelves of saws and planes, boxes of goodness knows what other goodies. Drool, drool... Anyway as I found a few links I thought I'd pass them on:
From blister steel to crucible steel
The Crucible Steel Process
The Hawley Collection.

Cheers, Alf

Hi Alf

So, when does an interest become an obsession?

:twisted: :lol:

Yours

Gill (just jesting!)

While we are firing our ingots have a search for "Puddlers" they where the men that turned pig iron into steel and had a average life of 50 years

<Busy noises of searching. Bingo...>
'Scuse me, I may be some time reading this lot... Oh dear, possibly the beginnings of another "interest"... :roll:

Cheers, Alf
