Stumbled across this forum.  When younger, when in college, worked for a number of welders.  Have some skills that way.

At ren-fairs, re-enactions, or living history places, always drift over to and spend most of my time watching the Blacksmith.  One time, at Plimoth Plantation, ( https://www.plimoth.org/ ) after hanging around and talking, the Smith had me make him a nail.  He said with some experience, I might do OK.

Today is my first day of retirement, as the HoneyDew list gets caught up, I plan to get some stuff and see if I can reach the "might do OK" point.

Good luck from a transplanted Texan.  All you need is a source of heat, hammer, anvil and your mind to make art.  [wink]

Rule #10;  "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."

Glad to have you on board. Texas is a great place to blacksmith. In fact any where is. Look forward to seeing a few nails from you.

lol,  "Texas is a great place to smith".  Hank, you should visit in late August.  I think you might think differently.
