A Textbook of Elementary Forging Practice

Originally published in 1920s, this is an elementary forging textbook suitable for blacksmithing students in technical schools.

While a comprehensive knowledge of forging practice can be gained only through contact with a commercial shop doing a wide variety of work, an understanding of fundamental principles can be secured through a carefully planned and conducted course of instruction in a technical school. This book is designed to assist the students in grasping fundamental principles. To this end, a series of 44 projects involving fundamental operations has been devised:
