Chisel workshop this weekend

The Old Dominion Blacksmith Association held a chisel forging workshop at the Floyd Center for the Arts.   Welding on the high carbon for the edge turned out to be an excellent way of  introducing new folks to forge welding.  Since it's just a piece of 1" square sitting on top of the chisel body, the only tricking part was being steady while putting it into the fire and removing, only had one fall off, but he got it on the second try :-)  Everyone, including some novices were successful in getting the weld.

That sounds like an excellent class.

 

I love the "story board" progression examples.

 

I've been intending to do this for several items, but seems like I always have something else that needs doing.
