ABANA level 1 project This is an ADVANCED class.

Service Description

This is a moderately advanced class used to teach forge welding. You should understand the basics of drawing out, folding and bending at the anvil. Forge welding is one of the basic skills every blacksmith should know. As part of this class you will learn how to start and maintain a clean coal fire. Typically to forge weld you need to apply flux (usually borax). However, flux is not always required. Especially if the fire and heat is managed properly. I learned this no flux technique for forge welding from Roy Adams of "Crist Centered Iron Works" and now use flux only on select occasions. To make our long handle flux spoon we will square up, scarf then fold some 3/8" round stock back on itself to make a faggot weld. We will then use the forge welded material to make the spoon bowl over a wooden block. We will finish the spoon's handle with a turned eye centered on the handle's axis so the spoon can be hung up beside the forge. Although I call this a flux spoon you can use it for stirring a pot over an open fire or for other kitchen tasks.
