Using a coal forge and standard blacksmithing skills students will expand their knowledge of how to bend and shape metal. Students will learn how to harden and temper edges and how to weld mild steel with tool steel to create the working edge of the chisel.
The forge welding process will be used to create the shank and ferrule of the chisel. Roughed out hardwood handles will be provided and customized during the workshop to complete each tool.
This workshop is best suited for people who have experience in the managing a coal fire and the basic blacksmithing skills of drawing out, upsetting, punching, drifting, and forge welding.
