Magnets for overhead welding

I heard one time from a old machinist/fabricator that you can heat up metal until it loses it's magnetism. This is the proper temp for forging.

Here is one such reference to this phenomenon put to use., (I think it is called the Curie point.)

I don't think the magnet does anything.

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
