A Blacksmithing Primer - A Course in Basic and Intermediate Blacksmithing
A Course in Basic and Intermediate Blacksmithing
Virtually every task beginning and intermediate blacksmiths must master is presented in this excellent book. More than 400 detailed drawings help increase comprehension levels. This is highly recommended to anyone swinging a hammer to shape hot metal.
This book has been dubbed the blacksmiths bible and I would certainly agree as I use it often when teaching new students and certainly recommend it to folks entering the craft almost daily! So what a treat now to offer it to all my customers with the help from Hobar Publications!
I believe it is the only very easy straight forward guide that truly shows the value of the hammer strike. It also gives you all the information you ever wanted to properly set up your own "smithy" from the layout of essential equipment, where it should be located and even how to construct your own forge.
Not to be cliche but a "must have"!!! (even if you want to use it to make your viewing of the hit show "Forged in Fire" richer since much is behind the scenes)
