Complete Modern Blacksmith
Our Price: $19.99

Written by Alexander G. Weygers

A truly unusual and unique resource, this extremely hands-on book brings together three popular but long-out-of-print classics (THE MODERN BLACKSMITH; THE RECYCLING, USE, AND REPAIR OF TOOLS; and THE MAKING OF TOOLS) essential for anyone interested in the making, repair, maintenance, or arcana of tools. An essential volume in any serious craftperson's library, this book covers setting up a smithy (anvil, forge, hammer, tongs, and all), and manufacturing everything from stone-carving chisels to decorative wall hooks.

Practical Blacksmithing Part 2
Our Price: $27.95

Compiled and Edited by M.T.Richardson

M.T. Richardson's four classic books on blacksmithing are back in print in two, easy to handle volumes. Together, these books provide an invaluable basic resource for the modern day practitioner of this ancient craft. The carriage owner or restorer can, with Richardson's help, understand how pieces were originally made and fitted together, and how they can be replicated today. The tool user and collector will relish the discovery of old tools and equipment, some no longer available commercially or even in current use. Historians and Americana enthusiasts will be able to glimpse the past with a better understanding of the mindset and aesthetics of an earlier time. And the blacksmith, through Richardson's emphasis on technique and craftsmanship, and his straightforward prose and illustrations, will be better able to understand smithing's central processes.
Part Two (Volumes III and IV) guides the reader through descriptions of more of the central smithing processes: welding, brazing, soldering, forging, cutting, bending, setting and tempering. It will be of particular interest to those working on carriages, as it includes information on how to work with such things as carriage irons, wagons, tires, horseshoes, axles and springs...and how to make a bobsled.
