  1. Bryn athyn college is a beautiful campus with a real nice blacksmith shop. Consider taking one of the workshops they offer. Blacksmithing, stone carving and stained glass. I've attached a few pictures of the ironwork on campus. It's a real hidden gem More pictures from Bryn Athyn All ironwork is in Monel

  5. And.... Make the top half of the socket lap over the bottom half of the socket on both sides making the top half bigger leaving more metal to raise up during the socket drifting operation.
  6. Actually the bick was rectangle and then the socket was drifted into the 5 sided triangular shape
  7. When I made my goose wing I used 2 halves for the socket and welded the sides. The poll was laid in between the socket sides and the blade in between the sides up front. then the edge was steeled on the bottom side. Need to make triangular shaped drift and bick to get the socket welded and shaped up
