Of Mooncursers and other spun yarns
Friday, August 5, 2011
Ever want to make a nail? This is the way they were made for centuries. A lot of heat a pounding and a quench in water. This is one of the nearly lost arts that is enthralling those of us who love such things. Heating hammering and forging bathed in heat an flame. Hot metal slowly cooling as hammering hardens the surface the metal is compacted, hardened and strengthened. The world doesn't know it but it misses these disappearing arts. Never fear the day will come when they will be needed again. Doug Visit "The Mooncursers and other Spun Yarns"
