Der Kunstschmied Otto Schmirler Otto Schmirler

S&H $5.00

In The Blacksmith (Der Kunstschmied); Otto Schmirler provides an account of work done by a master craftsman and his assistants. His purpose for this book; first published in 1977; was to re-awaken the interest in; and understanding for; the art of wrought ironwork. This book marks the beginning of Schmirler's guiding principle: to pass on what has been learned and proven; for the very essence of our craft is the handing down of experience from generation to generation. What Schmirler passes on in this book are over 750 of his drawings and photos of his work. The drawings show the master craftsman at the creative phase; and the photos document the final work of art.

The Blacksmith's Cookbook: Recipes In Iron Francis Whitaker

S&H $5.00

From a review by Crouchet at Amazon.com: This is an excellent reference for the working blacksmith. Francis Whitaker was the grand old man of modern American blacksmithing. In this book; he has included his own formulas and techniques for the common problems involved in forging ornamental ironwork. Francis thoroughly discusses forges and forge equipment; tools for the smithy; and basic blacksmithing operations and how they are best performed. All this is filtered through his many decades of hand-on experience at the highest levels of blacksmithing. I especially enjoyed this book because Francis was an opinionated; crusty old blacksmith and his persistent; forceful personality shines through in living color!

English Weathervanes: Their Stories And Legends From Medieval To Modern Times ... With 275 Drawings By The Author Albert Needham

S&H $5.00

Weathervanes tend to play an unintrusive part in our lives; sometimes being taken for granted. English Weathervanes draws attention to their history; construction use and design. This book is compiled as an introduction to weathervanes but is equally of interest to those with a passionate curiosity for the subject. The drawings have been made from weathervanes seen in several counties and; although the total area of the country covered in the search for examples was comparatively small; more than 300 (237 are included in this book) were discovered; which indicates how numerous and varied in design they are on our town and country buildings. Many weathervanes have similar subjects for their designs; but it is interesting to note how they vary in treatment so that rarely are two exactly alike to be found. If this book succeeds in influencing members of the public to appreciate these examples of craftsmanship; and persuades those who have good weathervanes on their buildings to preserve them in these days when the use of machines and mass-production methods tend to limit the output of good hand-wrought work; it will serve a useful purpose.

This book considers the heritage of the blacksmith-created iron grave crosses which originally were prevalent in the Black Sea area of southern Russia. Catholic immigrants brought the concept with them when they came to North Dakota during the early years of our history.

They speak of a deep and meaningful part of their owners' personal; community; ethnic and religious lives. They speak also to the spirit of North Dakota itself.

Southwestern Colonial Ironwork: The Spanish Blacksmithing Tradition From Texas To California Marc Simmons; Turley; Frank

S&H $5.00

The intent of this study is to show the nature and scope of the Hispanic blacksmithing craft and describe the kinds of ironware used in what is today the southwestern United States. Colonial smiths were more common in the Southwest and their work more sophisticated than has generally been recognized by scholars. They forged all manner of domestic utensils and hardware and served as gunsmiths; armorers; and farriers. The book is divided into two parts. Part I is a historical narrative tracing the story of smithcraft from Spain; through Mexico; to the American Southwest. The Spanish blacksmithing tradition; it becomes apparent; was distinct from that transferred by England to her own New World colonies. Part II looks at the colonial smith; his equipment; his methods; and the products of his forge. Information on these subjects has been taken from documents - particularly wills of blacksmiths; supply lists of expeditions; and inventories of mission workshops.

Wrought Iron FRITZ KUHN

S&H $5.00

120 pages with 191 illustrations. This book deals with wrought iron as a means of artistic expression in the hands of a craftsman. The excellent photographs of decorative wrought ironwork; while providing the expert with a synopsis of what can be achieved in this medium; will also give pleasure to everyone who appreciates fine craftsmanship. The author examines briefly the materials and techniques of forging. He lays particular stress on the fact that the basic principle for the craftsman working in this medium is the consideration of design. From his own practical experience he has come to recognize the importance of collaboration between architect and craftsman. The one possesses the knowledge of materials while the other is able to match the artistic work to the architecture. Deriving from the direct experience of a craftsman; the book surveys the many varied uses to which wrought iron can be put. It contains descriptions and illustrations of wrought-iron grilles; gates; banisters; balustrades and screens. Both their uses in general and details of special interest are presented. It is at once an instructive and a beautiful book; in which art and manual craft are united in most happy fashion.

A Historical Guide To Wagon Hardware & Blacksmith Supplies Towana -- (editor) Spivey

S&H $5.00

It is said that necessity is the mother of invention and if that is so; then desperation certainly fathered this reprint of the 1909 hardware catalogue from the George Worthington Company of Cleveland; Ohio. While struggling recently to identify bits and pieces of wagon hardware recovered from the archaeological investigations of several historic sites; it became painfully apparent that there were not adequate references on this subject currently available. Old hardware catalogues from the horse and wagon era are very scarce and unfortunately; those "old timers" with first-hand wagon and blacksmith experience are not always readily accessible to the researcher. This endeavor is aimed at filling a need that exists within admittedly limited spheres of research; chiefly for the identification of archaeological or museum specimens; and secondly; to e utilized by those involved in wagon restorations or blacksmith activities.

Out Of The Fiery Furnace: The Impact Of Metals On The History Of Mankind Robert Raymond

S&H $5.00

In this book; Robert Raymond follows the fascinating route from the earliest known metal smelting site; in the arid Sinai Desert or Israel; to the flood-plain of the Yellow River in China; to discover the secrets of the exquisite Shang bronzes; and to reveal newly-discovered iron-casting techniques which were 1500 years ahead of the West; to the stronghold of the Hittites in Anatolia; where the Iron Age may be said to have begun; to villages in India where metal-working techniques have hardly changed in 5000 years; to the misty peaks of the Andes in Peru; in the steps of the conquistadors' savage treasure-hunt for gold; to the gaunt ruins of the Industrial Revolution in England; to the world of mechanical robots in Japan; and to the desert sands of Alamagordo in the United States; where the unstable metal uranium was made to produce the world's first atomic explosion. Metals played a vital role in the rise and fall of empires; and the broad historical shifts of power and influence from one part of the word to another. Metals were a critical factor in all of mankind's most significant advances: the introduction of coinage; the invention of printing; the harnessing of steam; the discovery of electricity; the achievement of flight. And a small but critical group of radio-active metals; which are both consumed and created in that last and most fiery furnace; now present us with a deadly dilemma and an awesome choice. This is the story of man the metalsmith; through all his amazing creations; from the most sublime works of art to the most devastating of weapons; and of his raw materials; the metals which run like shining threads through the whole tapestry of human history.

Metallurgy is a highly specialised subject; introduction to which is confined to fearsome looking volumes full of technical data shrouded in the mystique of the professional; so making them intelligible only to the professional.

Chicago Metalsmiths Sharon S. Darling; Farr; Gail E

S&H $5.00

In exploring the history of Chicago it is relatively easy to notice certain aspects of the city's development. Its architectural heritage still punctuates the skyline; its tradition of city planning reveals itself along the lakefront and in its park system; the diversity of its population declares itself on almost every street; and its institutions are well memorialized by buildings and other monuments. But other important threads in the fabric of Chicago's past are less easily found or noticed. A good example is the subject of this book; Chicago Metalsmiths; which grew directly out of the research interests of Sharon Darling; the Chicago Historical Society's curator of decorative arts. She first became interested in the metalsmiths through examples of their work in our collections and before long undertook this major study of a neglected area of Chicago history. This publication and the exhibition which it accompanies are the result of that research. In addition to offering previously unavailable information; this study approaches the decorative arts from the perspective of the historian who must look beyond the aesthetic qualities of artifacts to their cultural significance. In working with the objects displayed in this exhibition Ms. Darling has sought to understand how they reflect the fundamental attitudes and values both of their makers and their users. The originality of design and the quality of craftsmanship that distinguish many of these objects are testimony to the artistic talent and skill of their makers.

Beginning Blacksmithing: One Mississippi Journeyman's View Bob Heath

S&H $5.00

This book has drawn great praise from the public and also from master smiths such as Uri Hofi. It is a real whopping treatment of the Blacksmith's Craft in 430(!!) pages jam-packed with useful information. This book; among many other things; gives a lucid account of how to forge weld; has the plans to make several sizes of leather bellows; has scientific specifics of what happens to iron when it is heated in a blacksmith's forge; presents some of the basic physics with force and acceleration formulas that come into effect when a blacksmith swings his hammer; what happens when steel is heated; quenched to harden; and reheated to draw the temper in steel. Young's modulus is presented as is Poisson's ratio when iron is heated and hammered. An explanation of the electrical polarity of iron atoms is given along with the effect forging iron has on the lattice structure of iron molecules and dendritic grain arrangements in a forged iron. Why forged steel is much stronger than cast steel is given. An example of an "S" curve is presented of the quenching process. Forging Damascus knives and swords is presented. How to sharpen a plow point is given - and much more. Bob Heath has been practicing his craft for decades and you'll be glad you shelled out a few dollars for the advice and information Bob has collected over all these years.

Dekorative Turen: Einzelanfertigungen U. Sonderkonstruktionen In Metall; Glas U. Holz (German Edition) Gretl Hoffmann

S&H $5.00

Every door is at once a boundary; shutting off one area from another; and also a bond between the inside and the outside. Thoroughout the ages entrance doors to buildings have always had to be exceptionally robust. Batten construction conferred on them the necessary strength; but it also provided interesting scope for decoration. Signs and symbols already appeared centuries ago to furnish an indication of what lay behind the door. Ornamentation of doors in modern times is a special feature of church architecture. In the realm of the sacred; the door has a special roleas a threshold to the world beyond. In the secular field too however; the plain; flush door or the single metal-glass system are giving way to livelier and more original designs. Individually created doors are increasingly found beside the anonymous factory product. Now we are beginning to experiment with the structure and aesthetic appearance of interior doors in buildings as well. This book is filled with black and white and color photographs of door systems. Many styles and mediums are represented. Captions are in German and English.

Charcoal And Charcoal Burning (Shire Library) D.W. Kelley

S&H $5.00

Charcoal was the smelting fuel of the bronze ages and has been in continual use in Europe for over five thousand years. Essential to the early metalworkers; history records its manufacture and the use of its by-products but gives few details of the charcoal burners - obscure figures often working in remote forest areas. This book describes the rapid growth of the industry up to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and how the emphasis of development changed to the production and refining of charcoal's by-products - acetic acid; tar and wood spirit - for the textile industry and the rapidly growing chemical industries. The use of charcoal and its chemical products declined in the western world as methods changed; but today it is still widely used in the metal industries. The industry has entered a new cycle of growth because charcoal is the only solid; high-temperature and smokeless fuel which is made from a renewable source of raw material.

The Art Of Wrought Metalwork For House And Garden (Schmiedekunst Am Haus) Otto Schmirler

S&H $5.00

From AABA Library book review: The subject Otto Schmirler chose for this book is ironwork for buildings; with emphasis on security and ornamentation. This book is for craftsmen who already possess the basic knowledge of forging iron. All of the drawings and photographs in this book were hand-picked by Schmirler from his archives. These true-to-scale drawings formed the basis of his work. "The drawings of pieces reproduced here are all original and sketched by me." His drawings were used to faithfully record the details he would wrought in the iron; to file away for commissions in the future; and to pass on what has been learned. His drawings and photographs include sculptures; garden gates; letter boxes; gates and doors; lanterns; grilles for doors and windows; furnishings; balustrades; garden furniture; fountains; decorations; and screens. Text also in English and French.

Elementary Metallurgy And Metallography Arthur M. Shrager

S&H $5.00

From a review at Amazon.com: Very clear explanations of the properties of the various metals and alloy groups; especially steel and steel alloys; copper and copper alloys; aluminum; and zinc; with especially good treatments of the effects of the many alloying elements. Some of these properties are quite paradoxical and still difficult to predict and understand their effects even today; but it makes for fascinating reading nevertheless. For example; it's understandable why adding such metals as tungsten; vanadium; titanium; or cobalt; and so on; would increase the temperature resistance and toughness of steel; since these are very tough elements with high melting points themselves. But why does adding aluminum produce a very fine; austenitic (i.e.; non-magnetic) grain structure; thereby increasing the overall strength of the alloy? Or why does silicon; a non-metal; greatly increase the fatigue resistence of steel; which is why it's often used in car and truck springs and other similar applications? Even stranger; why does nickel; a magnetic; ferrous element itself; when added in large enough percentages to steel; produce alloys that are non-magnetic or austenitic themselves? All of this made for fascinating reading and discussion. In addition to the above interesting sections; there are also very good discussions on such topics as the different types of furnace operations; annealing; hardening; and tempering; casting and finishing processes; heat treatment; defect analysis; and a nice section on thermodynamics and crystallography; as well as some special topics like powder metallurgy.

How To Build A Forge David Wimberley

S&H $5.00

A forge is simply a small coal furnace with a forced air blast. The particular design presented here; however; can also be seen as a small free-standing fireplace. The reason the forge presented in these pages is designed as a fireplace is that; especially for the home craftsman; it is desirable to keep fumes from the forge from being distributed throughout the shop. Thus; a hood is fitted with a relatively small opening so that the draft of the chimney pulls all of the fumes out of the shop area. This particular forge is very easy to make. The most difficult tool required is a circular saw fitted with a metal-cutting abrasive blade. No welding is required; although if you have a welder; you will find welds are more convenient and sturdy than nuts and bolts.

This book contains a vast amount of ideas and methods that blacksmiths of any skill level from will find useful. Otto Schmirler wrote; "...I decided upon watercolor or black-and-white illustrations that are especially easy to understand and remember; in order to avoid long written explanations." He does this so easily; each page has up to twelve illustrations making some of the most complicated processes look easy.

The Artist-Blacksmith's Craft; published in 1935 and My Life as Artist-blacksmith; published in 1941; are the literary legacy of Julius Schramm and offer a strong encouragement for renewal here in the United States just as they did during their day in Germany. This edition contains the text of both books. Schramm's words in The Artist-blacksmith's Craft speak to blacksmiths today with just as much importance as they did when he wrote them; at the age of seventy: Schramm's My Life as Artist-Blacksmith provides us with the philosophy of his craft; sharing the integrity and enthusiasm that he had for his work at the forge.

Francis Whitaker has been responsible for getting the Schramm books published; he suggested the books be translated by Robert Ruhloff and be published by SkipJack Press. Whitaker proudly carries on this tradition of blacksmithing gives us the final word on the contributions Julius Schramm: "We all took great pains to satisfy the master and in return had our own satisfaction in doing a fine job. A year with Yellin; two years with Schramm; set the pattern for the rest of my life. The pursuit of perfection."

Practical Blacksmithing: 4 Volumes

S&H $5.00

M.T. Richardson's four classic books on blacksmithing are back in print in two; easy to handle volumes. Together; these books provide an invaluable basic resource for the modern day practitioner of this ancient craft. The carriage owner or restorer can; with Richardson's help; understand how pieces were originally made and fitted together; and how they can be replicated today. The tool user and collector will relish the discovery of old tools and equipment; some no longer available commercially or even in current use. Historians and Americana enthusiasts will be able to glimpse the past with a better understanding of the mindset and aesthetics of an earlier time. And the blacksmith; through Richardson's emphasis on technique and craftsmanship; and his straightforward prose and illustrations; will be better able to understand smithing's central processes.

Part One (Volumes I and II) begins with an account of the tools and equipment of blacksmithing and continues with shop plans; diagrams demonstrating various smithing techniques; and discussions of iron and steel. Finally; there are the detailed; yet simple; practical descriptions of smithing's central processes; including drilling; fullering and swaging. 528 pages. Fully illustrated. 6" x 9". Soft cover.

On this account; the first chapters are purposely elementary and simple. A large number of examples of work are furnished which are suitable for technical high schools and vocational schools; from which the instructor may select to meet his needs. In the chapters on Advanced Forging and Art Forging; the ambitious worker will find directions for more difficult types of work which he may undertake as his skill increases; for art-craftsmanship know no bounds. The author has attempted to weave together the artistic with the plainer work; as well as to present in clear form that information needed for all the various general work that may occur in the machine shop; in the tool-making plant; in the repair shop and in decorative; ornamental or art work.

American Iron; 1607-1900 (Johns Hopkins Studies In The History Of Technology) Robert B. Gordon; Robert Boyd Gordon

S&H $5.00

By applying their abundant natural resources to ironmaking early in the eighteenth century; Americans soon made themselves felt in world markets. After the Revolution; ironmakers supplied the materials necessary to the building of American industry; pushing the fuel efficiency and productivity of their furnaces far ahead of their European rivals. In American Iron; 1607-1900; Robert B. Gordon draws on recent archaeological findings as well as archival research to present an ambitious; comprehensive survey of iron technology in America from the colonial period to the industry's demise at about the turn of the twentieth century. Closely examining the techniques--the "hows"--of ironmaking in its various forms; Gordon offers new interpretations of labor; innovation; and product quality in ironmaking; along with references to the industry's environmental consequences. He establishes the high level of skills required to ensure efficient and safe operation of furnaces and to improve the quality of iron product. By mastering founding; fining; puddling; or bloom smelting; ironworkers gained a degree of control over their lives not easily attained by others.

The Hammer: The King Of Tools Ron Baird; Comerford; Dan

S&H $5.00

this book; written by two of the World's foremost experts in the field of percussion tool technology; succeeds in its avowed task of making sense of an implement that ranges from the simplicity of a stone on the end of a stick to the complexity of patented special purpose hammer that only an inventor's mother could love. Divided into two distinct sections; the book begins with a pictorial analysis of hammers of every sort; and includes photographs of mallets; double claw hammers; stoneworking hammers; tack hammers and many; many; more. The second section; and the one that will prove most worthwhile to collectors and dealers; features an index of all known hammer patents together with the original patent drawings as submitted to the U.S. Patent Office. Included are patents for hammers for the one-armed man; nail holding hammers; double claw hammers; combination tools of every sort (including a hammer/wrench combination that is an insult to the integrity of each of its components) and much more. If you have an interest in tools; "The Hammer" will open the Door of Discovery to an interesting and infinitely variable world. An essential reference. The purpose of this book is to identify and classify the great variety of hammers that have been developed; adapted; invented; or simply evolved through the centuries; and to pay homage to those ingenious individuals whose creative minds conceived and whose talented hands fashioned those hammers which appear within these pages. It is our hope that after studying the hammer photographs and patents in this book and appreciating their diversity; the reader will have no doubt that the hammer is indeed the King of Tools.

It is a supremely unique book; for not only does it sweep aside the mystery which has surrounded engraving through the centuries; but it factually; simply and in layman's terms tells you how to engrave. Unlike so many so-called "instruction manuals"; The Art of Engraving does not assume you know anything about engraving. You start at the beginning by learning to draw scrolls and layouts; then cut practice plates until you are sure enough of your ability to actually proceed to designing a pattern; transferring it to a gun and cutting it into the steel. Whether you want to learn to engrave now . . . think you might like to in the future . . . or simply wish to broaden your knowledge of the art to be able to better judge the work of others (as you will learn to tell the good from the bad - and know why); this is the book for you.Every gunsmith; gun lover or craftsman - no matter what his other calling - has the soul of an artist. This personal; creative urge can be easily directed into the highly renumerative field of gun engraving through the coaching; no-nonsense instructions and technical support in The Art of Engraving. Chapters include: Design and Layout; Materials; Anatomy; Lettering; The Camera; Beginning to Engrave; Advanced Engraving and The Gravermeister.

Metalwork Leland; Charles G.

S&H $5.00

Norm Larson Books This work contains an explanation of the processes of cold metal work; chiefly as applied to decorative or industrial art; and especially with a view to their being taught to children in elementary and preparatory schools. The author believes that it may be regarded as thoroughly adapted to this purpose; he having been founder and director for four years of the industiral art classes in the public schools of Philadelophia; in which some of these branches of metal work were taught with great success. The principle which guides this book is that the rudiments; or first and easiest stages of anything to be mastered; must be very thoroughly acquired; and no step forward be allowed till the pupil is really a master in all that has preceded it.

Eisenzeit /Iron Age: Der Kölner Kunstschmied Carl Wyland 1886-1972 /Carl Wyland; Craft Metalsmith From Cologne Barbara Maas

S&H $5.00

Until recently; little was known about Carl Wyland; one of the leading ironsmiths of the 20th century in Germany. Although most of the literature on ironwork publlished during the 1950s and 1960s includes references to Carl Wyland; information is generally sparse; since the majority of publications were conceived as pattern books and do not offer much text. This study about Carl Wyland takes a novel approach in analyzing the work of one of the most prominent ironsmiths of this time by placing it in its historical context. The majority of the book consists of black & white and color photographs of his architectural work. Text and captions are in both German and English.

Life Force at the Anvil Joyce; Tom

S&H $5.00

This book depicts over 50 unique pieces of African forged metal work that was shown at the University of North Carolina during th summer of 1998. This is a well-illustrated book covering dimensions; composition and history; as well as; a listing of exhibitors represented. This exceptional exhibition had been organized by Tom Joyce; a blacksmith from Santa Fe; New Mexico. The exhibition contained 115 pieces of forged metal work from areas south of the Sahara Desert in Africa contributed by various collectors. The exhibit had been underwritten by UNCA and by ABANA. Tom Joyce says of the pieces in the exhibit: "I selected the pieces to accentuate their esthetic qualities; to appreciate them as art alone is to separate the realities they activate and the ideology of the groups they express. Most of these works stay hidden from view and symbolize ethics that their makers conceived as the mythical framework of human interaction at the beginning of time; and they instill social order and organization to this day. The complex histories that brought each into being; however; are absent when the objects are taken out of context from their place of origin. Therefore they must be viewed as parts of wholes; residing now in a space entirely unrelated to their original function."

Art Of Albert Paley Edward Lucie-Smith; Albert Paley

S&H $5.00

Albert Paley first came to prominence as one of the leading craft jewelers in America; an accomplishment that eventually led in 1969 to his extraordinary work as a monumental sculptor. Today he is recognized as one of the country's most gifted metal artists. The Art of Albert Paley is the first monograph on this important artist. Paley was born in Philadelphia and later trained at the Tyler School of Art; where he pursued his interests in jewelry and metalwork. It was this twin foundation that forged Paley's career; beginning in the early 1960s; at the height of American abstraction. Specifically; the artist's command of jewelry design prepared him for what remains his most famous commission; the portal gates of the Renwick Gallery of the National Museum of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution; Washington; D.C. These elegant eight-foot gates took Paley and an assistant one year to complete; they were unveiled to the public in 1974. Since that time he has made architectural sculptures for museums; organizations; and private clients worldwide; including the Reading Terminal Convention Center; Philadelphia; Yale University Art Gallery; New Haven; Wortham Center for the Performing Arts; Houston; and the Philharmonic Center for the Arts; Naples; Florida. In The Art of Albert Paley; noted critic and art historian Edward Lucie-Smith discusses the diversity and significance of Paley's achievements and explores how; like so many American artists; his work crosses the boundaries that separate art from craft. The more than one hundred illustrations reproduce not only Paley's major works; but also his preliminary drawings; many published here for the first time. This survey also includes a complete list of Paley's works; including major commissions; chronology; and exhibition history.

The graphic method of describing machine parts and their movement by means of diagrams; line drawings and photographs has been generally accepted as the quickest and most satisfactory. Since the purpose of the book is to emphasize underlying principles and not structural details; such as would appear in a textbook of machine design; the sketches and drawings will present a maximum of useful basic information without confusing irrelevant detail; since the practical engineer and inventor need only an outline of an idea for his inspiration and would probably resent elaborate explanations. Topics include: Fasteners; Adjusting Devices; Supports and Structures; Basic Mechanical Movements; Elevators; Derricks; Cranes; Conveyors; Transmission of Liquids and Gases; Combustion; Prime Movers; Transportation; Industrial Processes; Electrical Appliances; Comfort Heating; Cooling; and Air Conditioning. There are many subtopics in each category.

S&H $5.00

The second quarter of the sixteenth century witnessed the emergence of a new fashion of armor design based on the forms and ornament found in classical art. Embossed in high relief; richly gilt; and damascened in gold and silver; these lavish parade armors all'antica were worn by Renaissance kings and captains who wished to project an aura of power and virtue by arraying themselves like the heroes of ancient Roman history and mythology. The re-creation of classically inspired armor is invariably associated with Filippo Negroli; the most innovative and celebrated of the renowned armorers of Milan. The core of the book is a thorough reexamination of all the armors signed by Filippo Negroli. Additional works are attributed to him; and lost works are identified. The authors confirm the attribution of two magnificently damascened armors to Francesco Negroli; and they present Giovan Paolo Negroli's single signed work along with pieces they consider to be his. Each armor is described; illustrated; and placed in the context of the maker's oeuvre; its history of ownership is discussed; and its treatment in the critical literature is assessed.

The Spruce Forge Manual Of Locksmithing Denis Frechette; Bill Morrison

S&H $5.00

The best place to start the study of locks is with the simple hand forged locks produced by smiths prior to the turn of the century. Unlike the finely finished locks produced in specialized shops; locks made by blacksmiths had simple mechanisms that did not need finely tuned parts. They were designed by smiths and reflected their dislike or reluctance to do benchwork. The variety of lock designs show us that some of the smiths had a working knowledge of more sophisticated lock mechanisms while other created locks that could only have been invented in a blacksmith shop. The Spruce Forge Manual of Locksmithing provides patterns and instructions to build five blacksmith-made locks. Each lock design is based on antique original and provides a sampling of the range of lock mechanisms that would have been produced in a common blacksmith shop. This is not a book on the history of locksmithing but rather a description of our approach to the problem of reproducing the sample locks chosen for this book. Using the original locks as a starting point; the authors developed patterns and instructions using techniques that can easily be performed by the average smith.

Medieval Decorative Ironwork In England (Research Reports; 59) Jane Geddes

S&H $5.00

The author traces the development of the designs and techniques used in the production of iron-work in England from roughly 1050 to 1500. Found mostly on church doors; chests and tombs (in the form of hinges; handles; knockers or grilles) the ironwork of this period is a virtually unexplored aspect of medieval art; and has proved to be a rich source of evidence for design and craft skills. Extensively illustrated with more than 600 photographs and drawings; Medieval Decorative Ironwork in England presents; for the first time; a comprehensive national record of this little-studied artistic medium. Geddes' discussion of iron-working techniques and the designs' symbolism will be of interest to students of medieval history; architecture and the history of art; while the catalogue provides a rich resource for archivists and church enthusiasts. Architects; conservators; designers and craftsmen will find the illustrations and technical analysis of great practical use; as well as providing a valuable source for design ideas.

Stuart Hill: Metal Works Klaus Pracht; Hill; Stuart

S&H $5.00

Black and white photo plates from cover to cover with both German and English captions. From the author's introduction: "It's clear that this is a metal designer whose methods have very little in common with those of a traditional blacksmith; although all the processes are derived from techniques discovered in the forge. Hill uses streamlined; economical processes such as welding; squeezing; and pressing. Even the simplest objects produced in this way are true to the aesthetic of modern design. One of Hill's specialisms is his continuous efforts to develop ever simpler ways of joining components. His design details are not just technically convincing; they are inspired." "The aim of this book is to familiarise readers with Stuart Hill's signature style. It describes innovative manufacturing methods and introduces a new approach to viewing and appreciating metalwork."

For any one who cares to understand forgecraft; some things explained here will be found profitable." "Forgecraft is a fundamental subject and the only argument that fully proves many of its principles is a piece of iron or steel shaped and treated properly. Intelligence rather than great strength is now recognized as the chief requisite for success in this trade. But skill can not be acquired without experience; and while knowledge of the theory is more valuable to the possessor than practical skill; the latter ought to be gained first in order than the understanding may be correct."

From Forge And Anvil Candace Leslie

S&H $5.00

From Forge & Anvil is the story of one of smithing s most accomplished; yet little-known; artisans. With this photographic study; writer Candace Leslie and photographer Diane Hopkins-Hughs have restored Erich Riesel to his proper place in the pantheon of ironwork artists. The first part of the book tells the story of Riesel s life. Born in Germany; he came to America at 22 and after working as a cowboy on a number of Texas ranches; his gifts as a talented ornamental ironworker were accidentally discovered by two oilmen who were establishing handsome ranch/retreats on the banks of the Guadalupe River in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. For five years Riesel endowed their properties with beautiful ornamental works that have continued to evoke admiration. In this book; Leslie provides a fascinating description of Riesel s creative process; from discussing how he got his ideas (dreaming was important); through a step-by-step discussion of the construction of an artwork in iron. The second part of the book is devoted to Hopkins-Hughs black and white photographs. In these; she manages to harmonize her work with Riesel s; giving the viewer a wealth of information about his art. From massive ranch gates to airy railings to intricate chandeliers; Riesel turned out and Hopkins-Hughs captures masterpiece after masterpiece in wrought iron; creating a legacy that still endures.

Picasso And The Age Of Iron Carmen Gimenez; Pablo Picasso; Dore Ashton; F Calvo Serraller; Gimenez; Gime´nez; Carmen

S&H $5.00

Exhibition held at Guggenheim Museum; March 19-May 16; 1993. This handsome catalogue of a recent exhibit at Manhattan's Guggenheim Museum traces a fluid exchange of ideas among five sculptors who worked in iron between the world wars. Pablo Picasso and his Catalan compatriot Julio Gonzales collaborated on daring iron sculptures between 1928 and 1931. These "drawings in space" influenced American sculptors Alexander Calder and David Smith. Calder's experiments in iron ranged from delicate linear wire pieces to large fantastic shapes; while Smith invented iconoclastic forms that carried their own story with them. Meanwhile; Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti equated sculpture with mental space in works that explored the realm of human psychology. Art historian Ashton perceptively relates the iron sculptures of these five artists to the Surrealist obsession with objects. Spanish scholar Serraller fills in the political backdrop and also links their work to the Greek myth of the celestial blacksmith; with iron as a metaphor for the union of body and spirit. Gimenez curated the exhibit.

Metal Working A Book Of Tools And Processes Hasluck Paul N

S&H $5.00

Reprint of the 1907 original. The scope of this book embraces practically the whole art of working metals with hand tools and with such simple machine tools as the small engineering shop usually contains. The tool outfit of the average metalworker does not generally include anything more ambitious than a lathe with or without slide-rest; overhead motion; etc. and it is with this limitation in mind that the whole of the contents of this book have been prepared. Even withing such limits; the scope is extensive; and has been made to include a large and pleasing variety of work. Nearly every aspect of metalworking of every sort is covered in great detail in this comprehensive reference; as are the tools used in those trades. A wide range of subjects are brought more clearly into focus thanks to Hasluck's well written explication and a series of period line drawings. See "Notes" below for contents description.

Contents include: Foundry work; Smiths' work; Surfacing metals; Polishing Metals: The machines and processes; Annealing; hardening; and tempering; Drilling and boring; Taps; screw-plates; and dies; Soldering; brazing and riveting; Forging iron and steel; Working sheet metal; Repousse' work; Oriental decorative brasswork; Finishing; lacquering; and colouring brass; Lathes and lathework; Spinning metals on the lathe; Tools for measuring and testing metalwork; and lots more.

Steel Rolling Mill McDonald; Hugh

S&H $5.00

The design; building notes and operating suggestions are the result of a number of years of research and practical use by the author. I have found the machine easy and safe to use and it has provided me much pleasure and personal satisfaction. It will roll out round bar steel into whatever thickness you require for knives or tools. If the steel is tapered; like old car axle stock; the resulting flat bar will also be tapered like a sword. Hexagon or octagon tool steel such as in old crowbars rolls out into the sort of strip you would buy from a steel merchant; only cheaper. The heaviest I have rolled so far was from a crowbar 1- 1/4" thick. It took several heats to get it down to 1/4" thick and had to be cut in half when it got too long to handle. Complete and specific illustrations with notes of explanation. Click on link to read review by Jock Dempsey

A Blacksmith's & Hammerman's Emporium: A Collection Of Rare Trade Literature From Ten Prominent Manufacturers Of Blacksmiths' Tools Douglas Freund

S&H $5.00

Industrial trade literature - the catlaogues; brochures; bulletins and fliers issued by manufacturers - can be an extremely useful resource for both historians and craftsmen. Often such publications contain valuable bits of company and local history; while revealing stages in the development of mechanical designs. Product lines are exhaustively and often beautifully illustrated. The information found in trade literature is especially helpful to craftsmen who restore; contemplate and use machines from times past. Since some background information is extremely helpful in appreciating trade literature; each item is preceded by a brief introduction. Another of the pleasures of old trade catalogues are the fascinating original prices. To make these figures more meaningful; the introductions include a conversion factor (based on the historical Consumer Price Indexes) to render the original prices in today's dollars. In some cases the results seem surprisingly correct; in other cases; we marvel at the considerable investment represented by these tools in their days.

Mousehole Forge Richard A. Postman; Hatfield; John; Hatfield; Julia

S&H $5.00

Between approximately 1800 and 1860 Mousehole Forge of Sheffield; England was the premier anvil maker of the world. Even after about 1860 when other English anvil makers; such as Joshua Wilkinson & Sons as well as numerous others were producing anvils by more modern methods and machinery; still Mousehole Forge retained a major share of the market; especially in America; continuing right into the 20th century. By that time there were only three manufacturers shipping anvils to the U.S. As far as I can tell Mousehole Forge outlasted every other anvil maker in England except Peter Wright & Sons. How could a small manufacturer restricted to about an acre of land with a forge shop having just 9;000 square feet; using primarily water power to drive their antiquated helve hammers and other equipment; compete so successfully? This is the story of this small company and their anvils.

Gas Burners For Forges; Furnaces; And Kilns Michael Porter

S&H $5.00

Gas Burners for Forges; Furnaces; & Kilns is a do-it-yourselfers dream book; showing beginners how to make highly efficient gas burners inexpensively. These burners use simple gas accelerators as their central operating principle. All that is needed is a $2 MIG tip and some plumbing parts. This eliminates the need for a blower to supply combustion air; allowing the burners to be built in any size. Burners are featured; which are small enough to be used for a jewelry torch or large enough to heat any ceramic kiln. Because these burners are both powerful and portable; they can be combined with low cost space age insulating materials and common containers to build light compact heating equipment. Also described is a blacksmith's forge that can be carried anywhere and stored under a workbench; a portable metal melting furnace; a portable farrier's forge; a portable glass furnace/glory hole; and a mobile hot-work station that aids in combining several crafts. The burners and equipment provide an inexpensive way to get started in blacksmithing; foundry work; ceramics; or glasswork. General information and specific designs are given; enabling the craftsperson to build equipment tailored to their own desires.

It is hoped that this book; which has been compiled for the guidance of the small users; will disperse some of the mystery that has in the past been responsible for 'blinding them with science'; and whet their appetites for a greater understanding of the structure and properties of those materials that they are so adept at shaping; whether it be on the hearth or on a machine; but from which; and by their skill; they earn their daily bread; and contribute to the needs of the nation.

The Craft Of The Japanese Sword Leon Kapp; Hiroko Kapp; Yoshindo Yoshihara; Hiroko Tateno Kapp; Kapp

S&H $5.00

Well over a thousand years old; the tradition of swordmaking in Japan is one of the most highly regarded metal crafts in the world. When all sword manufacture was prohibited in Japan for seven years after World War II; the age-old techniques were in danger of being lost forever. Today; in the hands of a new generation of practitioners; the craft is making a startling comeback. Connoisseurs say that the swords being produced now are the equal of anything made in Japan in the past few hundred years.

This book takes the reader into the workshops of four of Japan's leading sword craftsmen. Each craftsman has a different role in the manufacture of a blade. Yoshindo Yoshihara; the swordsmith; begins with raw steel made in a traditional charcoal-fueled smelter and refines it by folding and forging; gradually shaping it into a sword with a hardened edge. Okisato Fujishiro then sharpens and polishes the sword with fine stones to reveal the color and texture of the steel. Metalworker Hiroshi Miyajima makes the small copper-and-gold habaki collar that fits between the blade and the scabbard. Finally; Kazuyuki Takayama carves the hilt and the scabbard out of a single piece of wood. Black-and-white photographs show every stage of the manufacture; while important information on history; metallurgy; and modern-day appraisal is presented in an extensive introduction.

The swords made in Japan today are not; of course; intended for actual use. But their design; the quality of their steel; and the techniques used to create them still derive from the sword's historical function as a lethal hand-held weapon. A sword must be razor sharp; light; well balanced; and strong; but not so brittle it will break. In the perfect resolution of these qualities lie the beauty of the blade and the challenge of the craft.

This book demonstrates how brilliantly Japan's sword craftsmen today have met this technological challenge. The impulse of the craft now is to preserve the utilitarian object and yet create an enduring art for the modern age. While many fine books on sword appreciation exist; these deal primarily with older blades or problems of appraisal. The Craft of the Japanese Sword is the first book in English devoted entirely to contemporary sword manufacture; and will thus be of enormous value to metal artists everywhere; as well as to collectors and students of weaponry.

Just An Idea Stanley; L. H.

S&H $5.00

Just an Idea is a collection of ideas from all kinds of sources: from books from the last centruy; from talking to old blacksmiths who remember when times were different; from talking to younger blacksmiths; and from myself; brought about through necessity for a particular job. As long as there are blacksmiths discovering new techniques in ironwork; this kind of book will never be finished. And that's just a thought. L.H. Stanley This book is filled with little tips in written format. Some examples are: "If you sand off the finish of your wooden handles; the grip improves." "To get the most out of hot rasping; use a farrier's hoof rasp that is worn a bit." "Bending wrenches are more useful if the ends of the fork are pointed."

Forged Architectural Metalwork Peter Parkinson

S&H $5.00

A handsomely illustrated guide to forged architectural ironwork and the craft of the artist blacksmith.

At one time; almost every town and village had a blacksmith. There are fewer smiths today; but despite the public perception that blacksmithing belongs to a bygone era; the craft is thriving. Architectural ironwork demands a wide spectrum of skills; from making a finely detailed drawing to forging heavy; red-hot metal bars. A good gate; grille; or balustrade looks so self-evidently right in its setting that its origin seems almost beyond question; but a blacksmith had to measure; design; forge; assemble; finish; and fit it in place. Written by a leading artist blacksmith; and illustrated with nearly 250 photos and drawings; Forged Architectural Metalwork looks at design; construction; finishing; and installation; as well as the skills required of smithworkers in the architectural field today. Chapters: 1 - Working and Workshop 2 - Basic Forging Processes 3 - Assembly Technique 4 - Surveying the Site 5 - Design and Regulations 6 - Handrails 7 - Balustrades 8 - Railings and Fences 9 - Screens and Grilles 10 - Gates 11 - Materials and Finishes 12 - Installation

A Blacksmith's Craft: The Legacy Of Francis Whitaker (Volume 1) George F. Dixon

S&H $5.00

By Dixon There are many books covering the basic blacksmithing processes and many showing finished articles; but Francis Whitaker's "The Blacksmith Cookbook" especially details the joinery techniques that he used; demonstrated and taught. He learned these in his early training in the shops of Samuel Yellin (1923-24) and Julius Scramm (1924-25) and then added to and refined these techniques during his lifetime in the forge. He was still learning new way and adding new tricks to his repertory in his final years. His valuable little book provided blacksmiths with a singe resource for diverse information that was otherwise available only from a wide variety of sources. As wonderful as the original book was; it had several shortcomings. Some parts were presented in logical order but others were not and rough notes from conferences and workshops were also included. This resulted in much duplication with ideas in random order. There was a Table of Contents but the lack of an Index was a great inconvenience. This revision and expansion by George Dixon takes care of the inconveniences of the original text and makes learning the difficult techniques easier and finding answers much quicker. George is an excellent blacksmith; illustrator; writer and teacher and has done a fine job of presenting the material. Francis would be happy with this book. Contents: Chapter 1: The Blacksmith's Shop Chapter 2: Blacksmithing Processes Chapter 3: Making Hammers; Tongs & Tools Chapter 4: Joinery Chapter 5: Forging Blanks & Balls Chapter 6: The Twisted Bar Chapter 7: Scrolls Chapter 8: Quatrefoils Chapter 9: Animal Heads Chapter 10: Mechanics of Basic Design & Drawing Chapter 11: Surface textures; Finishes & Finishing Index 145 pages; over 750 illustrations.

Ironwork: Dynamic Details Dona Z. Meilach

S&H $5.00

Here is an exceptional insight into the unique ironwork created by todays artist-blacksmiths. Over 250 color photographs display details of contemporary iron objects; including flowers; grape clusters; leaves; small and large animals that attest to the blacksmiths role as a sculptor. There are amazing scrolls; folds; twists; textures; and weaves not normally associated with the hard material. With heat; hammer; talent; and muscle; the modern artist-blacksmith is forging exciting forms that permeate our surroundings. The casual viewer may often overlook details of small elements used to create a magnificent whole. Dona Z. Meilach shows how focusing on the iron details of flowers; leaves; and amazing critters makes ordinary fences; gates; and chandeliers extraordinary. Functional joints become beautiful elements for furniture; fireplace accessories; candlestick holders; and other iron items we use daily. Donas approach will open ones eyes to see and respect this burgeoning art form. This stimulating book is a must for metalworkers; designers; artists; gallery owners; art lovers; and museum directors.

Nahum Hersom Repousse Jerry Henderson - Editor

S&H $5.00

From introduction by Jerry Henderson: Repousse' means to repeal in French; the craftsmen that did repousse' work were called embossers. There are two methods of embossing; one is cushion; the other is support. The support method is sometimes called stake repousse. The skill of the embosser is to put the hammer blows in an overlapping pattern so as to make a perfect line or pattern. This book documents Nahum Hersom's workshop and parts of his handwritten workbook. The value of this book is to give the blacksmith and other metalworkers a foundation to do detail and definition work; specifically ornamental metal. The German method of embossing is what Nahum Hersom teaches; he learned his craft from Mr. Valatine Goelz. The tools in this book are more general; the techniques are more specific.
