Do Not Try This At Home

Do Not Try This At Home (really!).

... in fact do not try this ANYWHERE.

This website is not a "How To" about anything, it's a kind of online diary for me to share my projects with my family and friends. Previously my projects were spread over several forums, flickr, youtube and whatnot. It made sense to put them all in one place.
Clearly much of the techniques and projects I have done have the potential to be very dangerous
I personally have suffered numerous workshop accidents. The worst to date was a piece of 4 inch orange hot steel bar hit me in the face at speed, as it slipped from the tongs whilst I was working it on an anvil. It struck in a diagonal across my left eye, burning through the skin on my eyebrow and bridge of my nose. It even singed my eyelashes right down to the eyelid! One half rotation more or less would have seen it enter my my left eye and possibly go further in.
btw, Orange hot is approximately 1000 Centigrade / 1800 Fahrenheit.
Have I got your attention now? Do not try to do anything you see on this blog. It could very easily go wrong resulting in grievous and perhaps even fatal consequences. Find yourself thinking that it will never happen to you? That is foolish bravado. It can happen to you, or in fact anybody else around you at the time, and that will be when you least expect it. 
If you are interested in attempting any of these projects, then go and get properly trained and equipped, wear the appropriate safety gear, read, research and think "Safety First".
