How to Forge Weld On A Blacksmith's Anvil

cover photo

Subtitled "For those who have diligently tried and failed".

Forge welding can be difficult and downright frustrating, but is a necessary skill you must learn if you ever hope to consider yourself a master blacksmith. Heath will walk you through the theory and the practical techniques.

You'll learn how to flux, how to recognize the signs when the iron is hot enough to weld, how to "pop the weld" and much more. He'll explain the "wet look method" used by expert blacksmiths who rarely miss a weld. You'll learn to prepare scarfs to make a strong lap weld. Also covered are the secrets of welding layers of steel to achieve simulated Damascus steel. If you make knives, you may want to try scarfing the steel layers before welding them into a billet. Heath will show you how to make a chain and more.

This is a quality booklet published by the author who is not only knowledgable in theory and technique but in the history of metalworking as well.
