Looking forward to stopping by the blacksmith exhibit this fall at the 2019 State Fair! It was at last year's display that I met Mr. Randy Stoltz, I believe. He encouraged me to continue to pursue my interest in learning the craft. My goal is to put the forge that I have been able to assemble to use by the time this year's fait rolls around. The slow speed that I have worked is my own fault. I didn't get my forge built or find this site until I had done a considerable amount of over analyzing. Anyhow, see you there!
