Basics of Blacksmithing
01 14 08 - 04 14 08

We started with two students, Ben and Dave. Dick had already taken Rudiments I so he stepped in at the five week mark. Travis had taken Rudiments I and II so he came in on week nine. Ben missed the last two meetings, so he isn't in these pictures (yet).

By the end of this class each student had made:
chisel & punch (hardened and tempered
Tongs (tong halves, rivet, drift for rivet hole)
sharp right-angle bend
welded flux spoon
long cooking fork
animal heads (using the chisel and punch)
matching 'S' - scrolls
collars to hold them together
