Tongs Intensive (Day 1 of 2)

February 20th and 21st Tongs Intensive - Flat Bit and Square Bit


February 20th and 21st, 5pm-9pm

In this class we will teach you how to make flat bit and square bit tongs.

The primary intent of this class is for you to learn how to forge tongs, expedite the process by the use of the power hammer, and how to assemble and align tongs appropriately for their use.

The second purpose for the class is to make as many tong halves as possible, which you can then assemble at a later date depending on their application.

We highly recommend having taken Blacksmithing 100's-400's before taking this class.

Please arrive for your class at least fifteen minutes before the scheduled start time. Wear non flammable (high cotton content) long sleeved shirt and long pants and closed toe leather shoes. Bring plenty of water and be sure to eat a hearty meal before class.
