Returning to this field after 35 year(!)hiatus. Eyes and hands not what they used to be but I'm game. Enormous number of new techniques and equipment available with which I am not familiar. Main interest is working with silver, copper, brass, bone. I prefer to fabricate - not at all drawn to casting or mass production. I still have tools and stuff I worked with 40 years ago and am wondering about trading up to better equipment; better torches, rolling mill, etc. I'll have lots of questions.
