Next tongs class - Blacksmith tongs with a Farrier look

Unread post by Darryl Ponder » Sun Oct 05, 2014 7:54 am

Here is a video showing the making of some farrier style tongs. This is from the 2011 World Championship competition.

2011 World Blacksmithing Championship - tongs

Here are some detailed video instructions:

1/4 Inch Craig Trnka Blacksmithing Tongs

The next Guild tongs class will be making a set similar to this, but with symmetric jaws for use in general blackmithing. These look to be easier to make than the Poz tongs and I like the look of them.

Hope to see you there,

Darryl
