    7&1/2" x 7&1/2" x 1/16" thick

    wadda ya mean how much?

    ;)

    just remember, after peening it the first time , you need to anneal it until it turns eggplant color when removed from heat. This aligns the grain structure and makes it soft again. Other wise you risk work hardening and cracking it

    Used to live a few blocks from metal supermarket. Going to that place is wierd now. That whole industrial park used to be a mossy forest. They built some sort of shell fuel processing thing on my old tree fort :(

    Let me know when you figure out how to make a brass mug.

    Nice! Can you lock it up? Or will they just break in?

    It's public. Built over 70 years ago by a Russian logger. It's used by skiers, snow mobilers , hikers , campers, loggers etc.

    Locking it would just incur vandalism.
