There is nothing more important than having a good grip on a 2000 degree piece of metal and there is nothing more frustrating than when you can't. Take this class and learn how to make tongs that are strong and will properly hold your work. By making your own tongs you'll save money, time, and be working safely while getting needed hammer practice for the hobby blacksmiths.
