4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, November 29, 2012

For the price i really can't complain. I've been using it for soldering with my electronics projects, to keep the smoke away from me and blow it better towards my ventilation. Good airflow, good price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for the price, November 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The chisles came pretty sharp, but they're a little soft. They need to be resharpened often, but for the price I really can't complain. I've been using them for hot cutting and pinching holes with my blacksmithing.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite games of all time, November 29, 2012

Dark souls is amazing. This code works with steam. I highly recommend playing with a controller, but its great once you do.

5.0 out of 5 stars All 3 work on STEAM, August 28, 2012
It's pretty easy to activate on steam. Just go to the download page after you buy them, Click on the "view product key" and copy that key. On Steam go to the Games tab, then click "Activate a product on Steam". Paste the key in there and it'll be added to your library.

Blacksmithing Projects

2.0 out of 5 stars It's ok, but I would have put my money into a better book, January 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Blacksmithing Projects (Paperback)
This is a pretty basic book and I'm not sure theirs much in here I couldn't figure out if I just sat and thought about it. Maybe some of it might be new to someone who has zero smithing experience, but even a novice should be able to understand pretty much every project in this book. Most "chapters" are between 2 and 5 pages long and have ok quality diagrams.
For future buys convenience I'll list the books table of contents and a brief note about each project:
1 Set of punches and chisels (generally describes how to make metal working chisels and what they should look like
2 woodcutting tools (similar to metal chisels. Really only covers wood working chisels.)
3 garden tools (how to make shovels, trowels, hoes, rakes, crowbars, etc. Most of which is basically "bend metal to desired shape and attach to handle as shown".)
4 plant pot hanger (this chapter covers making a bracket for hanging on a wall and a hanging container for a plant or flower. It also covers some basic scroll work, using a scroll jig, but this is pretty basic and their are much better tutorials on youtube.)
5 plant stands ( more or less the same as above, but standing version.
6 yard seat(unbelievably simple garden/park bench. If you could make the plant pot hanger you should be able to do this no problem.
7 trestles (basically a non-ornate version of the bench that comes in two parts. You may not actually need anyting more then a drill and thin bar steel to do this project.)
8 outdoor table (more of the same scroll work, but if forms a simple table.)
9 glass top table (more elaborate, but similar table with more scroll work.)
10 Pokers (interesting ideas for fire pokers. Neat handles designs and instructions on how to make them. Nice ideas, but still easily researchable elsewhere.)
11 Door hinges (basic concept of how a hinge works and how to make one.)
12 Door latches and bolts ( basic concept of how latches and bolts work and how to make them.)
13 simple wind vane (just as it sounds.)
14 ornate wind vane (same concept but with lots of scroll work. This goes into making some more decorative details, but nothing mind blowing.)
15 exterior lamp bracket (more or less the plant hanger, but upside down with a square lamp on top of it.)
16 Domestic hook hardware (basic wall hanging hooks, coat hooks, etc. Very basic, should have been in an earlier chapter.)
17 Fireplace smithing (log rests, shovels, brushes, tongs and hook/stands to place it all. basic but ornate, much of the same.)
18 Boot aids (things to help get mud off your boots and how to make them)
19 coat and umbrella stand (how to twist metal into a tall stand with rings in it for placing umbrellas.)
20 Small gate (basically chapters 11 & 12 with measurements on how to make an iron gate)
21 scrolled gate (same as above, but with scroll work rather then straight bars.)
22 fences and railings (basically the same as 20 & 21 but without the hinges and latches. More details like 14.)
23 wheelbarrow (very simple bend and rivet steps like the early chapters.)
24 traditional candle stick holder (more or less combining 19 with the handle designs in 10 to make a candle stick holder.)

All in all, I think for most this book won't be too useful. It has some ok information in it, but it's of ok quality and nothing about this book is above ok. I recommend going the extra $10 or so and buying "New Edge of the Anvil".

5.0 out of 5 stars Every one is happy with this item... sadly, April 20, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This item is, to say the least, great. I'm personally very happy with the tools and my sculpting skills are increasing with them.well, at least they were. My father liked them so much he's taken them for himself :( I'll have to buy him a set in the future (or just keep them for myself).

The tools are of decent quality. not quite dental, but great for sculpting clay. Some of the bladed edges could stand a little sharpening as they are quiet blunt, but its not necessary if your project doesn't call for a sharp edge, or better yet, just use a razor for that part. All in all I'm very happy with this buy.
