I'd have to say chapters 7 and 8 as I'm new and haven't used the products yet, just a crap load of metalcast and black. I saw a few files in the files section that I think would look awesome fine with steel fx.

I've used SteelFX products before, and I'd say that Chapter 8 was the most helpful to me. I'm ready to move into some of Bill's more exotic offerings now!

Chapter 4 CHAPTER FOUR
REQUIRED SUPPLIES, EQUIPMENT & TOOLS

It's not often that manuals give you required and not required...with pics. Most of what I've learned is trial and error after spending money on a tool that I think may help me do something. lol

Thanks for the Steel F/X offer! I've really been wanting to branch out and try a different type of finish from powder coating.

I liked chapter 8 the best, but am curious about the AVOS discs from chapter 6. Have never heard of them before. I always love hearing about new and cool tools!
Thanks!

Chapter 6 for me. Removing dross is always difficult for me. Your book provides some great information and you provide plenty of safety reminders along the way.

Love to look through the entire manual... Haven't used any patina's as of yet but, know doing so would take my projects to the next level... I got the most out of Chapters 5-6...

Chapter 6 is a good one, but I knew some of it already so I would say the most useful was chapter 8, regarding the sequencing and timing for the various patina's and the snipets describing how you got some of the effects.

Chapter 8 for me. I seem to get random results at times with patinas and chapter 8 offered me better understanding of things that affect the outcome.
