Picking Up where I left off

Recommended Posts


It has been several years since I have been on here, and I am starting my mailing again.

I hope to get inspiration from you all.

I forgot how sore my hands used to get from working with the 16AWG stainless, but it is worth it!

So, how are the hands doing now?  Toughened up yet?

Using bigger, longer pliers of course lessens the load on your tender flesh.

Will you want the Trevor Barker shirt recipe?  https://web.archive.org/web/20160508055350/http://homepage.ntlworld.com/trevor.barker/farisles/guilds/armour/mail.htm  It copies a c.1438 German mailshirt from Hamburg and now in the Wallace Collection.

It's Web-archived; I'd download it, for it is too good to lose -- the NTLWorld site it was on went dark years ago.  The file is not large, about four-five pages of typescript, with a few linework illustrations.
