Blacksmithing & Toolmaking-with Walt Scadden

anvil_up_closeTool making is probably one of the most useful skills that a blacksmith has and this new class will give you an appreciation of some of the techniques used. Students will learn the basics of shaping hot iron by making a small chisel or a center punch to start out. After that project is done it is time to move onto making a utility knife or a marking knife that you will find a thousand uses for in your shop. Shaping the tool steel, annealing and hardening the steel and finally grinding the cutting edge are just a few of the steps you will take to make a great tool that you can truly call your own. This fun class will give you a chance to try out blacksmithing, or polish your skills if you have taken past classes. Don’t miss it! Tuition: $275.00 plus materials

Section 102514B: Saturday & Sunday, October 25 & 26, 9:30am - 5:00pm                                       Mike  Pekovich marking knife
