Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This complete, no-nonsense guide, originally published at the turn of the century, dispenses invaluable instruction on all the essential skills of the blacksmith's craft. Author J. M. Drew begins with the basics, including how to set up a blacksmith shop, selecting materials and tools, and practice projects such as door hooks, staples, and chains. He then goes on to give a complete tutelage on all the techniques any good blacksmith must master - from welding to tempering tools to shoeing farm horses. Additional instruction is given on splicing rope and filing and sharpening saws.Farm Blacksmithing is more than a practical book on craftsmanship and technique. With dozens of illustrations throughout, it captures the essence of one of America's most highly valued trades - one that laid important groundwork for modern industrial metalworking. (4 1/2 X 7 1/4, 112 pages, b&w photo, illustrations, diagrams, charts)
