I'd like to share some pics of my 'antler' chandelier (the antlers are of 1 1/2" pipe), but, the program I had to resize the pictures has vanished from my computer. Any suggestions for a free program ?

If all goes well I'll soon be commisioned to make some sculptural newl posts and railing in bronze. I've only used it for cap rails and have never forged any.
It sounds like forging the silicone bronze is fun and I'm wondering what the working temps are and does it show color at those temps. Does it get contaminated by tools/abrasives that have been used on steel?

Any advice on welding stainless with a torch, would it work? Also, localy stainless is labeled 304/304 L ,or, 316/316L . I understand the L to designate lower carbon content ~ better for forging. It
