Blacksmithing: Forging Wolf Jaw Tongs
A collaboration between the Folk School and Calypso Farm and Ecology Center
Instructor: Tom Zimmer
In this Forging session we will hammer out a set of Wolf Jaw tongs. Wolf Jaw tongs are very adaptable to a variety of stock, and we will examine different jaw structures. The tongs have a triple offset in the boss area, and we will learn how to neatly control these divisions. This class will challenge your forging skills, improve hammer control, and send you off with a new tool for your blacksmithing kit.
