Anyone dabble with the art? I started this year, and I absolutely love it! Granted, I use a lot of charcoal and i get dirty, but I'm learning lots and really enjoying another aspect of being self sufficient.

I would not call myself a blacksmith by any means, but have been known to beat a little metal into submission

Anyone want to make me a whopping set of barn hinges? I rebuilt the doors on my old 1875 barn, but they are fastened shut because I can not find anyone to make me six 4-foot long iron strap & pintle hinges. Of course, shipping said hinges would be prohibitive.

that sounds like my dad!! :lol:

i've thought about trying the art to learn how to make homemade knives to sell, but never really made an effort to gather the equipment.

Go to http://purgatoryironworks.com/ This is the only site I know of that actually teaches you the art of blacksmithing AND bladesmithing. There are a lot of really nice people willing to help. Plus, there are how to videos is you're willing to pay $10 a month.
