Hey Hobby Smiths:
- Take a chunk of W-1 steel and a spec. sheet (available from Bruce Crittenden, see contact info below)
- Using hand tools…slit, drift, punch, flatter, striker…forge your hammerhead
- NO power hammers, please.
- Bring to *Spring 2014 Conference to put in the hammer gallery
- Prizes will be awarded at the conference for your Hammer-Time efforts
- Ask questions online or of your fellow smiths
- Solid fuel is handy to harden your forged finished head.
