This intermediate-level blacksmithing course will cover the process to complete a pair of tongs. Individuals will learn techniques such as chiseling, punching, riveting, and complex shouldering. At the end of the 2-day intensive course individuals will have completed their own pair of bolt style tongs for your new blacksmithing kit.
