Hot stuff will be happening at the annual Spring Hammer-in taking place at the Nowthen Historical Power Association Blacksmith Shop where we will focus our efforts on the Fall Conference contest: trivets. Come and hang out with a bunch of your friends, make new friends, and share/learn some new skills.

  • Beginners/Newbies welcome to come and try your hand at smithing
  • Camping on-site is available Friday & Saturday night on primitive sites – port-a-potties on site
  • Five forges are open for use Ö Coal will be provided
  • Bring any examples you have to share with others Ö Bring your own tools if you have them. Some limited steel stock is available, but if you need specific sizes feel free to bring your own steel, scrap pieces ok.

This year we will have some demonstrations and discussions of trivets in preparation for the contest at this year’s Madness (Fall Conference.) Questions about how to design or build a trivet? This event will hopefully give you some inspiration to help you to come up with your own design for the Fall Conference contest and help you learn how to make it.
If you have some skills in the creation of a trivet and would like to demo or have any questions about the event, please contact: Rich Herman at 651-322-1623 or at richherman651@gmail.com.
There is no charge to participate in this event. The Nowthen Power Show grounds are located at 7415 Old Viking Blvd, Nowthen, MN. Additional details will be provided next month.
