Hi Patrick. Welcome to IFI. I'm formerly from just south of you, between Lima & Findlay. There are a couple of smiths in your area around Defiance, and another in Paulding County. I haven't seen any of them on here lately. But I know that they are in your area. Like Thomas said, if you can, try to make it to Quad State. It will be a huge help for you. Good luck. :D
