    out of curiosity: why not use a centre lathe?

    the bigger gold chips might actually be easier to sort out this way, and the method is quicker.

                    It’s poetic in the way in which you left the rings in a hammered finish, showing that you legitimately forged the relationship between the two of you and how there may have been bumps along the way, and by work hardening the rings you’ve shown that you and her are in it for the long haul and you have become strong together, never being able to be broken because you know you have each other.

                    I wish for you and your soon to be wife to have a relationship stronger than any Damascus you’ve forged

                    Sorry for the puns but I truly mean it
                    Love ya man

                      Regarding Lost Wax casting, I've always wondered. Why does the metal need to be poured? Why not create a much larger investment cast with a bowl at the top and let the metals melt slowly into place in the oven?

                        Shame. Watched almost 10 minutes of video and was starting to think Alec had finally gotten rid of Will. Unwatchable.

                              Hammered look sucks on weapons but very cool looking on jewelry. Is jewelry something your going to start for sale your good at it

                                      I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.
                                      We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has only happened once, and that's why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I'll never forget a single moment of it.

                                                            Alec, you should consider buying a silicone ring for yourself, and use it as your daily wear ring. For special occasions the gold is proper, but the metal band can get you into trouble in an industrial setting.
