    Blacksmithing Projects Blandford, Percy W.
    $12.95

    Blacksmithing is one of the oldest crafts. Ever since man discovered how to produce iron he has worked it hot into useful and decorative things. The techniques of the craft have changed little over thousands of years and a modern blacksmith, whether professional or amateur, carries on the thadition in ways that a blacksmith of earlier times would recognize.

    What to make might sometimes be a puzzle. This is an idea book, not instruction on blacksmithing techniques. The book is complete in itself, offering ideas that are complete in themselves. The projects described range from those that can be made with few tools and improvised equiptment to others that will require all the skill and equiptment of an experienced smith.

    Blacksmith’s Craft, The
    $22.00

    The Blacksmith's Craft: An Introduction to Smithing for Apprentices and Craftsmen was published because there was no text book, at that time, on blacksmithing which could meet the needs of craftsmen and apprentices. The lack of such a book was a handicap to the teaching of this subject. It is also of great value to many other craftsmen and apprentices whose work depends on a sound knowledge of the behavior of iron and steel. The skill of the smith is faithfully recorded in sequences of still photographs and brief descriptions. Some of the methods shown and described are not the only ones possible. As experience is gained, the smith can develop his own variations of a technique. With its clear photographs and accurate descriptions, The Blacksmith's Craft is a valuable resource for all blacksmiths.
