Desert Rat Forge Demo

Todd Howes
Todd will demo punching and drifting long with some joinery. If you were at the recent annual auction his table had some awesome joinery!

Paul Dief
Dief will demo a pot rack (assembled with rivets of course) along with a jig to make hooks for the rack.

Location: Desert Rat Forge

Gates open 8am. Demo starts at 9am

Registration: $10 for members, $15 for non-members

After the demos there will be a forging contest:
Everyone will start with 5ft of 5/16 sq stock (this will be supplied). You can use all or part of it.
You will then have 66 minutes to make a botanical form - use your imagination..
Everyone who enters will be given a raffle ticket to win a $50 gift certificate to Pieh Tool.
This contest is for everyone regardless of skill level. Even if your piece looks like a javelina ate it and pooped it out you have a chance to win the gift certificate.
Bring your anvil, forge & tools if you got em.

• Lunch is on your own - Cave Creek has many great cool funky eateries
• Tailgaters welcome
• Bring Iron-In-the-Hat and Show and Tell items
