Backyard Blacksmithing ~ by WoodlandsTV

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here we see Allan Course (the Backyard Blacksmith) at the Bentley Woodfair, demonstrating how to make a simple but effective hook from a six inch nail using an inexpensive, mobile forge set-up - ideal for woodland working. Allan`s skill is apparent and his enthusiasm is infectious - as he encourages us to have a go, keep safe and enjoy! http://www.bentley.org.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

Interesting, did you not use any refractory cement to line that pot? Also for quenching is it better to use oil rather than water?
