Collector Bookstore Quick Notes:

This book was first published in 1904. The author was a successful practicing blacksmith. During his work, he took notes discussing his tools, techniques and matters such as creating one's own tools, repairing farm implements, general notes on setting up a shop, etc. This is a great title for someone who wishes to learn about or practice blacksmithing as it was done around the turn of the century.

Publishers Full Description:

Only an experienced blacksmith with genuine care for his craft and the livelihood of all blacksmiths could produce such a wonderful guide. Holmstrom provides not just practical instruction for all manner of small-scale blacksmith work, but intersperses his guidance with more general life lessons for blacksmiths, such as not falling prey to "habits of intemperance." More than a snapshot of a bygone era, the style and the content of Traditional Blacksmithing will appeal to readers of today, thanks to Holmstrom's generous and patient approach. Topics covered include: setting up shop, building your own machinery, repairing horse hooves, fixing your tools, and even building a strong reputation in the community.
