Surprised   THAT fool on the video is a complete idiot !!!

NOT ONLY does he show a lot of ignorance in his metalworking techniques and metallurgy knowledge, but check out his lack of proper PPE and the short and inadequate tongs he uses for such high temperatures..

NOT to mention some of the harmful fumes given off from the zinc, copper and some of that mixed smelting.  I wonder IF he's ever heard of using fans and/or a fume extraction system..    :\\:[:

ALL of those negatives aside, I still like the overall concept of using solar power ~ now to get it hot enough for forging knives, swords, axes and arrowheads !!!
