The ID of a 4 inch square tube with 1/4" thick walls if 3.5 inches. BUT, the diagonal is almost 5 inches wide (4.95). How wide is that guard?

Every thing I have watched has been a great fun and learning experience, as well as entertaining. I have a question about filing ? My grand father a machinest for McDonald Douglas Aircraft. Taught me that a file only works in one direction , and when drawn backwards dulls the file. I can never tell if you use your files back and forth or in one direction.?

You should do a build where you make a quench tank that is adjustable so you don't have to build different quench tanks for different size blades.

I have a question and possibly a future challenge. You mentioned that Will was going to grind off 10 knives worth of steel... So, is it possible to reclaim some of the filings/shavings from your grinding room and melt them down to potentially cast them into something?

You could have cut away one side on two pieces of the rectangular profile and welded them together to make a longer rectangular profile. [ ]

Would it have been possible to punch/drill some holes in the guard and forge weld the loops in place? That was my first thought, but I'm not a blacksmith.

Alec! I have a serious question/challenge for you and Will! Wall-hangers. Can they be transformed into actual swords? Could you, say, forge-weld or even cut out an actual tang on one, and then properly temper the steel?
A lot of wall hangers are sold to mall-ninjas around the world, and advertised as "spring-steel" because they are literally laser cut from the leaf springs of old trucks. They're super soft, bend easy, and for a "tang" they typically spot weld a long bolt to the "shoulders." But, if you took a leaf spring wall-hanger, cut or forge welded a real tang, and then tempered it properly...could you make a real sword from it?
Love your channel! And, I feel you are well suited to test this question!!!
