Blacksmith Shop Practice
Publisher: Owen Press
This vintage book contains a collection of blacksmithing articles that include information on designing and maintaining a workshop, making hooks and chains, welding, maintaining equipment, and much more. These timeless articles contain a wealth of useful information and helpful tips that would be of considerable utility to modern blacksmiths. Contents include: "Arrangement and Equipment of a Model Blacksmith Shop", "Foundations and Walls", "Forge Space and Arrangement", "Arrangement of Steam- and Belt-driven Hammers", "Location of Blowers, Conduits and Piping", "Furnaces, Tool Racks, Hammer Foundations and Piping", "Foreman's Office, Wash Room, Lockers, etc.", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on metal work. First published around 1910.
