Spring Hammer-In April 28-30, 20-23 Demonstrator Line-Up
Terry Sheridan, from Collingwood Ontario, Canada, is our demonstrator for the Spring weekend. Terry’s day job is running a machine shop where he works on heavy construction machinery and is on call to do work for several nearby ski resorts. In the shop, most of his forging is for industrial applications, using gas forges and power hammers. View more of Terry's work at The Barn Studio. Terry’s plan for the weekend demo is to forge several traditional tools from wrought iron with carbon steel edges, such as a small axe, chisel, and spoon auger. There will also be a demonstration of a set of box joint pliers and a set of forged joint dividers. And, if time permits, a demo of techniques used for forging sockets and other internal shapes Expect a fact filled demo that will send you home with notes filled with simple approaches to forging traditional items, practical solutions, tooling ideas and inspiration.
