Issues with sharing smithy, waiver?

Recommended Posts


I have some neighbors that would like to flounder with me and learn smithing.   

Over the years I’ve accumulated a bit of equipment ( couple of forges, few small anvils, swage blocks, cone mandrel, welders, tings, hammers, grinders, etc)

Anyway, I’m fine sharing for a fuel and soda  donation, but I’m concerned that if someone got hurt that it would cost me.  

So, how do you all handle sharing equipment and liability?

If you are going to teach there should be an insurance to cover you. If they are going to use your equipment and do their own thing, you need a different insurance policy. Sad but that is what it is. Each state / country will have different laws but that is the general idea ... unfortunately. Check with your current insurance to see if you are covered.  There a re some in this forum that held smithing classes. They should know.
