August Demo Recap

Making Norfolk latches with Michael McCarthy by Paul Crosby

Aug 30, 2013 12:30-4pm

This months demo was done by Michael McCarthy from Mohawk Valley Forge. Michael showed how to make door pulls and latches, touched a bit on hammer control, and hammering styles. His teaching style was easy to understand, and he took the time to thoroughly explain each step, and demonstrated the process. I certainly learned a lot, and enjoied spending time with a seasoned blacksmith like Michael McCarthy.

I'm not much of a videographer, but here is some of the video footage from today. If you would like to see more, or have your own copy. please feel free to drop me an email PHC2112@YAHOO.COM.
