10th Annual Fire and Brimstone Hammer-in

72 posts in this topic

Fire and Brimstone 2017 will be March 25-26th this year ( one week post the Antique Arms Show in Baltimore)

10 years seems impossible. Such great friendships have been made and amazing food eaten!

In additional to the 3 running hammers (2B Nazel, Bradley 100 and Iron Kiss 75) we have a huge 7 by 9 15 hp rolling mill.

This should be happening after our winter break when we are all rested up right? Instead we are starting filming of Man At Arms here in the first week of January.

Several more sanders ( I think we will have 10-12 space savers on hand)

Let us know what works for you guys as to any additional setup and demos.

Something you would like to see? Post it here and we will add everything we can.

We will be limiting attendance to 60. Registration will be $75 for the entire weekend to offset our costs. Vendors and tailgating is encouraged at no additional fee and will have separate parking, trailers allowed.

Please let us know if you plan to bring anything that will need forklifting and we will have one available.

Please visit our site http://www.fireandbrimstone.com We will update the event section over this next week. Feel free to use the registration sheet as is in case you get there before us.

The site will include accommodations, Schedule, and Artists/Demonstrators. We are still rebuilding the site but it is live now and registration is open. I will be talking to the local hotel to see if we can get group rates. Breakfast and lunch are provided, grills are open for anything you wish to bring or share! Camping is encouraged but weather in Maryland is always suspect! The later dates should help us out quite a bit. The first year we had snow, 2nd year it was down right warm and sunny, 3rd well we had a little water, 4th Having a roof makes all the difference!!.... There are bathrooms(spot-a-pots) but no showers.

I'll be there! This year I'm actually planning on going to the baltimore arms show for the first time (my neighbors are there with a table every year for Man At Arms magazine) so this works out great, I'll drive down for the show, then spend the week in DC area doing touristy things, and then do F&B =)

Mark and I were talking about a larger smelt this year, after I brought back a bunch of ore... so we'll see if that turns into a thing.

I may be able to make it this year, but before I fill out the form (specifically the tailgating bit) does anyone want some railroad welding thermite buttons? They just re layed the track in my area and I picked up about a dozen and I cand do anything with them myself.

You know the Vista Cruiser and I will be there!!!!!!!

 

Forge a new axle already for it?

 

 

Kerry, is the big press still operating? We have a large pile of material we'd like to squish while we're there, and can set up our own forge right next to it to stay out of other people's way. A few runs of the rolling mill would be greatly appreciated too, but I've never used a hot one before.
