  1. A compilation of available sources of tong making methods. Feel free to add. Free on-line sources: the United Nations books on agricultural blacksmithing: Link to the first volume: book http://www.fao.org/docrep/009/ah637e/ah637e00.htm and the tong page: http://www.fao.org/docrep/009/ah637e/AH637E24.htm Volume two with a couple of mother methods, including the "Proper" method: http://www.fao.org/docrep/009/ah635e/Ah635e00.htm The tong page: http://www.fao.org/docrep/009/ah635e/AH635E10.HTM Sadly, it appears that the Cosira books are no longer available for free download, you'll have to buy them. However, if you're willing to part with the coin, I would put said coin into the purchase of Mark Aspery's books, 'Mastering the Fundamentals of Blacksmithing'. In volume one, he takes you through the steps of forging five types of tongs. http://www.markaspery.com/School_of_Blacksmithing/Book_1.html And supporting the books are these two Youtube videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qf1n9U-lp78 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jp6lQ8fkrUU And here is a short bit from a clinic with Toby Hickman, a wizard with the power hammer, it includes a bit of power hammer tong making: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGSPX5Yn70Q DVD by Toby showing how to make tongs with the power hammer in detail, available from both Blue Moon and Amazon: http://bluemoonpress.org/index.php/catalogsearch/result/?q=toby+hickman https://www.amazon.com/Toby-Hickmans-Power-Hammer-Techniques/dp/B00AERTRV2
