Tong Fest

Tongs

Unfortunately, this course is not offered in 2019.

This course is about making you more Tong savvy. There are about twenty different types of tongs commonly used in the Blacksmith shop. This is your opportunity to be able to confidently make a variety of Tongs and acquire the skills and knowledge to continue over the years to increase your tong repertoire.

Also I will encourage you to bring along your older Tongs that need a little TLC. We can reset your old Tongs, tighten the rivet and replace the rivet if necessary and also having the skill to adjust the Tong as required to accommodate different steel stock. At the end of the course you will have your choice of either new or refurbished Tongs either way with a lick of natural bees wax as my preferred finish.
