Elementary Forge Practice

Recommended Posts

I found this book while cruising Ebay for blacksmith stuff; it seemed like it might have some useful information, so i bought it. It was designed as a trade school reference in 1917, so it is a bit dated in many respects, but the projects and the drawings are well worth while and still relevant. The book was about $10 with $5 shipping, came quickly, and is in trade paperback format. 144 pages; I cruised through the whole thing last night. I recommend this for beginners and experienced smiths alike as an excellent addition to any blacksmiths' library.

Please provide a title and author for the book.

There are a good many blacksmiths' book from that era.

SLAG.

My bad I just noticed the title of the thread, which is the title of the book.

www.bamsite.org has the book which can be downloaded without cost.

There's a book titled elementary forge practice I think his first name is David. I'm sure the last name is Harcourt that matches the description of the book described by the op. You can download a free PDF file from woodworkslibrary.com

Messrs. Shimanek  &  Steven Ny,

Thanks for the references.

I note that the 'Hathi Trust",  also,  has John Lord Bacon's book too.  "Forge Practice", c.r.  1908.

It's,  also, worth a look.

I just looked up the "Hathi Trust". They are a consortium of 13 universities and 60 research libraries.
