May 4, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm$50
Instructors: JimMoenck and crew Class size: Maximum students: 8 Minimum students: 6
This class will teach you the skills you need to make a hammer. With this knowledge you will then be able to expand your tool chest with other handled tools. All handled tools such as top fullers, punches and flatters start with this same process. We will begin with a piece of steel, punch the eye, shape both striking ends, heat treat and put the handle on. You will go home with your own hammer. There will be an assortment of weights to choose from so that you can make a hammer that fits you and your needs.
Tools and Equipment or other items participants are to bring to the class: Your favorite hammers: one for striking hot metal, one for striking punches and drifts, and a sledge for striking if you have one. All other tools will be furnished.
Safety Equipment – The normal safety equipment is required.
Lunch Arrangements: Bring your own bag lunch or eat out at one of the local establishments.
