This is a report on some of the first experiments of any size carried out using the new first order proof checker FOL. The authors present two different first order axiomatizations of the metamathematics of the logic which FOL itself checks and show several proofs using each one. The difference between the axiomatizations is that one defines the metamathematics in a many sorted logic, the other does not.
