Intro to Toolmaking: Chisel or Punch
October 29 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Blacksmiths have always made their own tools and it’s a skill every smith should know. This class will work with carbon steel to make a punch or chisel that will be hardened at the working end and soft at the striking end. Each student will leave with a usable tool and the understanding of how to create more. The details of metallurgy and hardening will be discussed in depth.
