Hobart, WA (PressExposure) December 22, 2008 -- Blacksmith Zone has just released a new section of their website that has all of the Blacksmithing Supplies. This is part of a new community website that is all about Blacksmithing. Members and non-members can visit this Blacksmithing page on the Blacksmith Zone website for free at: [http://www.blacksmithzone.com].
Here is an excerpt from the new Blacksmith Supplies information webpage:
âIt is a common misconception that a blacksmith relies on his muscles, a forge and a hammer to create his products. The modern blacksmith is a high tech artisan who uses a variety of sophisticated and complex tools and equipment to produce intricate works of metal. The modern forge shop is a sophisticated manufacturing unit where the old blacksmith in his leather apron and heavy hammer would feel out of place. Among the supplies available to the modern blacksmith are:
â¢ Forges. While many blacksmiths prefer to make their own traditional coal coke fired forges, a range of traditionally fueled and gas or electric forges are available off the shelf. Besides standard designs n a variety of sizes, special forges for the manufacture of specific items, like a knife forge, are also available. â¢ Anvils. A range of anvils in a variety of sizes and shapes, designed for use in the creation of specific shapes are available. Using different shape specific anvils to create the desired shapes can both reduce the amount of work required in shaping as well as provide for better accuracy and fineness of finish. â¢ Tongs. In the case of tongs, one size does not fit all. Tongs of varied lengths and with differently designed gripping heads are available for not just lifting and holding the heated metal, but to make.â
