On this page, I've put the links to the six parts of a 1986 documentary about a team of blacksmiths under the direction of Francis Whitaker, building a Samuel Yellin-style gate. Features Jack Andrews and my old teacher Fred Christ. 

Orphaned blacksmithing videos This IFI page links to individual blacksmithing videos whose host channels/pages aren't specifically blacksmithing-related.

Some links for blacksmithing, wheelwrighting, and wood working related to wagon building.

Most likely due to language used in their videos.  Rules of the road here are no cursing, but you are certainly free to look them up yourself on YouTube.

Yes, that's why they're not linked. We did make the decision NOT to remove links to channels that use Patreon, even though that's also technically a violation of our TOS.
