A Blacksmithing Primer

Author; Randy McDaniel

ISBN 9781737604495

174 pages.

I really appreciate the truth in advertising with this book, it really is a primer and a good one at that. It won’t overwhelm with difficult concepts, but will help with so many details of the craft that a beginner would need for success. With hundreds of clear drawings to illustrate the text there is no room for confusion over what is being taught.  It starts with covering the basic tools setting up a shop and then adds instructions for the different hammer blows and solid fuel fire advice. Then straight into projects including both fun items and ones every beginner needs, like tools and tongs. Round it all out with some welding pointers and you have a very functional primer from a former lecturer and demonstrator for ABANA meetings with +50 experience.
