The blacksmith’s ABCs—learn metalworking as taught by the old masters! The forging of metal gave birth to the Iron Age, and Practical Blacksmithing is the classic primer on the craft that shaped modern civilization. Featuring more than 1,000 illustrations, this foundational text describes every aspect of working with iron and steel, and is essential for both the do-it-yourself backyard blacksmith and the professional metalworker. Originally published in four volumes in the early 20th century, this hefty, single-volume, new edition of Practical Blacksmithing is different from similar books in that it includes contributions by working tradesmen. In addition to its clear and concise instructional material, the book’s editor collected the actual words of old-time blacksmiths offering their best methods, unique how-tos, original techniques, and arcane knowledge. Industrialization and mass production may have led to the disappearance of the blacksmith from everyday life, but the art of metalwork never died. It smoldered like hot coals in a forge, and today those coals are red hot as craftsman taking up blacksmithing as a hobby or art form seek to learn the foundational aspects of the trade. Proving that what may be old can actually be new and useful, Practical Blacksmithingdescribes all the important smithing processes: welding, brazing, soldering, cutting, bending, setting, tempering, fullering and swaging, forging, and drilling. It also includes the early history of blacksmithing and describes tools used since ancient times. In addition to thousands of other useful facts, the modern blacksmith will be introduced to old tools and learn how to make them, and can even learn how to build a retro blacksmith shop with detailed do-it-yourself plans!

As more and more people join the do-it-yourself revolution, they are breathing new life into many time-honored skills and crafts. Blacksmithing is among the trades that are enjoying a resurgence for both practical and artistic uses, yet there isn’t an abundance of readily accessible information available to beginning blacksmiths to help them get started and understand the craft. Author Ryan Ridgway, a veterinarian and blacksmith with more than 15 years of metalworking experience, hopes to fill that void with this comprehensive volume geared toward answering the many questions that new blacksmiths often have. By explaining the physics of moving metal, the different styles of anvils and forges, and alternative fuel sources, Ridgway sets his book apart from less detailed volumes. Forty practical, easy-to-follow projects are presented, showing aspiring blacksmiths how to make tools, such as hammers and chisels; farm implements, such as gate latches and hoof picks; and items for home use, including drawer pulls and candle holders.

This unique annotated bibliography lists nearly 300 books on the art of blacksmithing. It is divided into four parts: Practical Black­smithing, Specialized Areas of Blacksmithing, Historical Background of the Profession, and Products of the Forge. Part 1 deals with the technical side of blacksmithing: the texts, manuals, and courses aimed at teaching the basic pro­cesses. It includes reference books on the materials of blacksmithing and on metallurgy. Part 2 presents the more specialized and advanced processes of blacksmithing, includ­ing ornamental ironwork, farm smithing, industrial forging, and bladesmithing. It also includes materials related to pattern-welded Damascus steel. The listings in part 3 deal with black­smithing as a literary and historical subject. The primary focus of these books is on the traditions, lore, and descriptions of the trade. In these books the processes, tools, and prod­ucts are of only secondary importance. Part 4 lists books that treat the products of the forge, a wide-ranging area that covers everything from tools and utensils to archi­tectural works. A special feature of this section is a chapter emphasizing individual smiths and their works. The book also con­tains two indexes, one an alphabetical listing by author and one an alphabetical listing by title.
