looking to try my hand at armor work

Hey guys!

I'm planning to try my hand at armor work. Dishing, raising, planishing, repousse and chasing. The whole good game. I'm hoping before I go and drop an additional $500 on all of the armoring stakes and tools, I could find someone who has a shop already set up for it. I would like to try KY hand at a small project or two so I can get a feel for which tools I need right away, and which I can make it by without for a bit.

If you have even just a planishing stake or a dome stake or something I could take for a ride, I would appreciate if you reached out to me!

And if you have any armor tips for a new smith, I am all ears!

I'm in Burnsville, so Mankato is a little rough on a work night, but I may be able to swing it.
What time do you guys meet?

Thanks for reaching out!
