Looking through an old book store in tonapah today and found this. It's from 1907 and reprinted 1913. Full of old timey writing and a lot of products I've never heard of. One thing I found interesting was about quenching files in molten lead.
I have looked through the forums and have seen many many recommendations for books to read on the subject of general blacksmithing. I saw a lot of suggestions and it was really hard for me to try to narrow it down to just a couple. I also did a little bit of research outside of this forum. I think I settled on these three books, The art of Blacksmithing by Alex W Bealer, the Back Yard Blacksmith by Lorielei Sims, and The Complete Modern Blacksmith by Alexander Weygers. I was also contemplating Blacksmithing Primer: A Course in Basic and Intermediate Blacksmithing by Randy McDaniel, but I wasnt too sure on that one, it seems like the other books would cover the info in it but it seems like a really nice book, haven't made up my mind on that one. If anyone has any to add or some to remove due to redundancy I would love the suggestions, otherwise these are the three I will probably get for the time being. From what I saw in the descriptions they all seem to talk about the same general stuff, but focus on very different areas. Any help would be appreciated. If that knife making book is still for sail on here I will probably get that a little down the road when I have built up a little more experience.
Hello, I'm looking for suggestions for books covering raising and advanced hammering techniques. I already have techniques of the medieval armourer, and the armorer and his craft, just wondering if anyone knows of anything more extensive. I'm sure there is a bunch of stuff online, I simply prefer to have my information sources readable on paper to keep in a library for reference later. Any suggestions would be most appreciative! :33
