A Blacksmithing Primer with Randy McDaniel (DVD)
(2 January 2022) This DVD set has been out-of-stock (OOS) with the publisher for several months. They have just reprinted it and we should have copies soon. The book was also OOS and will also be available soon.
This is the companion DVD to 'the blacksmithing bible', A Blacksmithing Primer (also available from Artisan Ideas). The author of the indispensable reference book appears in these videos, teaching the standard techniques that all blacksmiths must know to master the craft.
This is a 3 dvd set with almost 6 hours of learning. You won't find a better resource for the beginning and intermediate blacksmith.
You will learn how to organize your shop, build your first fire, hold and use your hammer, choose your stock, make tools for any job, forge weld, make scrolls, hinges, how to make animal and human heads and much, much more.
Randy's simple, straightforward and humorous approach to learning to be a good blacksmith is as much a part of these videos as it is his book. Shot and edited in the same clear, user-friendly style you have come to expect from Love of Art Productions, you will enjoy watching Randy demonstrate all the techniques close-up, just for you.
This is a must-have for every blacksmith's video library!
