Farm Blacksmithing by J M Drew. Here is time-honored instruction on all the essential skills of farm blacksmithing. This complete, no-nonsense guide, published originally at the beginning of last century and reprinted here, dispenses invaluable tutelage on both the history and craft of this grand tradition. J. M. Drew begins with the basics, including how to set up a blacksmith shop, identify and use various essential tools, and select materials with which to work. He then goes on to give a complete education in the most essential techniques any good blacksmith must master. Finally, he leads the reader step-by-step through a course in forging a wide variety of useful and often attractive items from cutlery, candlesticks, and lanterns to horseshoes and handy farm devices. Farm Blacksmithing is more than a practical book on craftsmanship and technique. With dozens of illustrations throughout, this fascinating slice of Americana captures the history of a highly valued trade--one that laid important groundwork for modern industrialized metalworking.
