    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Naw spent 3 years taking metal smithing classes at the appalacian Craft center in Tn. It is the art center connected with TN Tech University. Then in SF CA, I went through the Revere Acedemy of Jewelry arts and got certifed as a bench jeweler. A girl has to have a good source of diamonds, and I hate paying retail.

    Thanks for all the replies. I requested info on a couple of metal working forums and have been told that 301 stainless is a hardened, tempered stainless specifically made for use as springs and items such as metal spatulas and pastry tools. It requires no additional treating for cutting or machining but does require a pretty specific process of heating and cooling to be formed or bent and then retain its qualities as a spring.

    It can be cut on an abrasive water jet or stamped. For aerospace applications water jet is the required method as it introduces no heat into the metal and causes no fatigue at the edges as does stamping.

    I will probably be ordering a 24"x24" sheet of .047" (9 gauge I believe). So if anyone needs such a material in the future for some reason let me know and I can have some cut for you.

    Well - I actually have a little bit of experience in this. The first 4x5 I ever shot with (about 1984) was borrowed from a neighbour. It was a compact-ish monorail with a triangular x-section rail and red bellows (anybody wanna help out on what this might have been??)
