March Hammer Intensive
March 13th, 14th, 20th, 21st 5pm-8pm
In this class you will get to make your choice of 2lb or 3lb cross peen hammer. Starting with your raw stock of 4140, you will punch, drift, and shape your hammer head as closely as possible to final shape. You will then heat treat, dress, and haft your hammer in a manner which is appropriate to your personal body mechanics.
We highly recommend having taken Blacksmithing 100’s-400’s before taking this class.
Please be sure to show up at least 15 minutes before class time. We recommend wearing non-flammable (high cotton content) long sleeves, long pants, and closed toed leather boots. You are encouraged to bring your own respirator if you have one.
Please eat a hearty meal before class and bring plenty of water and snacks.
