In this workshop students will hot punch holes in 1 1/4" round bar, split the face of the hammer and then forge a spike off the back end. Heat treat and hickory handles….then some testing on a steel drum! Students will need safety glasses, dust mask or respirator, leather work gloves, (welding gauntlets not needed) and should wear jeans, a non-flammable cotton shirt and/or jacket, and closed-toed boots or leather shoes. Our forge is an outdoor building that is only semi-enclosed; please dress accordingly. For full-day workshops, please bring a lunch to be on the safe side, as there may or may not be time to get food during a lunch break.
