Jim Moran will start off the meeting demonstrating how to forge weld. As we all know by now, this is not an easy thing for most of us to do. Thus, Jim has volunteered to demonstrate this process once again. The pressure is on Jim to successfully do a clean weld! Following Jim, will be Steve Gurzler who will demonstrate how he makes a set of tongs. Both demonstrators, as we regulars know, are top notch blacksmiths who can do just about anything related to smithing - so, this will be another terrific meet not to be missed.
