3 Day course -
similar format to the 2.5 day course but we have an extra half day for forging a simple random pattern billet.
2 Day Course - Basic Damascus - Ladder, twist, random.
Student will create a alternating stack of 15n20 and 1084 layers, weld them together, add a handle, and use the hydraulic press and rolling mill to create a pattern welded billet. Different dies and grinds can be done to change the pattern, limited only to the time available in the course.
**Please contact me and we can work out the details. In the past students would give me an idea of how much finished steel they want and which pattern they are trying for and we would go from there.
