    Default Blacksmithing

    A local fella was offering 1:1 blacksmith lessons. It was incredibly fun. The smithy is in a 100 year old cabin and very tight quarters. I built a coat hook and a pair of pliers. I am going back in two weeks for more!

    Is that a hand cranked drill press? I guess it has a flywheel on the left. Cool looking tool.

    Yes! But you can remove the crank and run it on a belt using the fly wheel.
