This vintage book contains a detailed but concise guide to machine blacksmithing, with information on setting up and maintaining a blacksmith shop, the correct use of tools and equipment, and more. Although old, this volume contains a wealth of information that will be of considerable utility to modern blacksmiths and metalworkers, and would make for a useful addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "System in the Blacksmith Shop", "Tools for the Blacksmith Shop", "Anvils and Forges", "Power Hammers and Forging Appliances", "The Steam Hammer and its Use". Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on metal work. This book was first published in 1910.
