PHIL TRICKEY WILL ONCE AGAIN BE GIVING A
DEMONSTRATION ON PERIOD METAL WORKING
DON'T MISS THIS CHANCE TO VISIT THESE HISTORIC HOMES
AS WELL AS SEE A BLACKSMITH IN ACTION
Our Society is fortunate to have Phil Trickey, operator of the Trickey Forge in Camp Dennison as a Society member. Mr. Trickey provided visitors last year with outstanding demonstrations on period metal working by producing several beautifully finished metal items from raw bar stock.
The first step is to heat the forge
untill the coals are red hot.
Next, the raw metal bar stock is heated. The
color of the metal tells the blacksmith when
the metal is ready for forming.
The hammer - the anvil - the wedge
are the tools of the trade.
The metal is heated, formed, re-heated,
and re-formed until the object (in this
a metal cross) begins to take shape.
After each "heat" the hammer and
the anvil are used to form the metal
The final product ....
Phil has many great hand forged items
for sale and can be contacted at:
