By Hammer In Hand...
A Site for Traditional and Experimental Metalsmithing


From Feb. 17-March 1 Lee Sauder, Skip Williams, Darrell Markowtiz and I got together and put our heads together on short stack smelting. We learned a lot! I will put pics up on my smelting page when I get them. You should also check out: The Rockbridge bloomery (with plans for one of the types of small furnaces we used.) Darrell has a plan for the other type we used, as well as some cd's of smelting pics for sale.
