My arm is tired....

We're smiths, if we wanted to do things the easy way, we would be potters..............Ain't that the truth! Before I even knew what a power hammer was one of the pieces of art that I made that sold well was two pieces of 1-1/4" steel drawn down to a 1/4" and tied into a bow. I made six of them and thought that getting $75 each for them was good money in 1976. I ended up with a massive right shoulder and looked somewhat deformed on my right side but like Charles says we're smiths not potters.
