Blacksmithing basics

Recommended Posts

I am a construction surveyor so summer is my busy season.  Not much time between that and tending to the garden, the family and the woodpile.  Once the heat of the summer cools down comes my time to play.  I just finished a great book and I'll be replacing that time with introductory blacksmithing literature.  I found this pdf online that has stopped me from looking any further.  I like it because it is basic basics plain english.

I'm thinking between this Harries and Heer writeup, local connections and this website I should be ready to start hammering before the snow flies.  Would you say this looks like a pretty darn good introductory article or do you know of any others that I should be looking at instead?  

Thanks,

Pete

There is a lot of usefull info in the pdf you've linked to, but not all of it the best, or definative. I would suggest you make the most of it and suppliment it with the wealth of info available here and when you have a specific question, fire away.
