Brian Brazeal demonstrates forging techniques.
Great video on the flux. It would help if someone did a similar video with the same flux but with a gas forge, for those of us that only have gas forges. Also, could you demonstrate the same technique but using regular borax to show that the fluxes don't have the same result?
This flux was formulated for gas forges, and is easier to use in a gas forge or induction because it will not "leach" and ruin your liner. It stays where you apply it. I apologize for not responding sooner, but I just saw this a few minutes ago. I would like to show some videos as you suggested, but I am simply too busy, but thank you for your suggestion!

I never knew that there were modern day blacksmiths. I remember going to an old frontier land for a field trip at school and there was a black smith there. I never realized that so many things can still be made out of metal using a forge and anvil. I really hope to try it out someday. http://www.acutechworks.com/welding-blacksmithing/
Today there are more people forging metal or blacksmithing than any other time in the history of man, but now mostly for enjoyment or as a hobby, but things are also forged in industry that have to be forged because that is the most efficient way to do the job, and it produces the best product that will hold up best to do the job required.
It is over 35 years since I became an apprentice Blacksmith and I am still learning. I just wanted to echo Brian's comments on Iron mountain flux. All I can say is it is true it works like nothing I have used before either. I used it in a gas forge and it is fantastic, so easy to control, the tacking is very strong. There is very little residue really because you only use a small amount at a time and the bottle allows you to just put a dab where you need it.
This was a really great contest and hopefully I can attend the next one. It was alot of fun and I really enjoyed myself..product
