We have that neat power hammer at the mentoring center and I would love to use it to work down a damascus billet I have been working on. Is there any chance one of our experienced smiths could teach a workshop on its use next month? 

Also, since it is a homebuilt hammer, could we some day plan a building workshop? Some associations out east have had them and it seems really useful.

That hammer was actually built at a workshop up at Monstermetal, using jigs and fixtures sent from back East!Smile

 

It would indeed be good to have someone teach us how to use it safely and effectively!

No matter where you go... there you are.

It’s not scheduled for next month. It is scheduled for the December event. Note it’s not the normal day due to holiday. Darryl Nelson will do a workshop on the use of the power hammer with the aim towards having more people (I can’t think of the right word here so I’ll use “certified”), or at least trained in it’s use. Alair had to cancel for her event so Darryl is stepping in to teach use of the power hammer.
