520    "As more and more people join the do-it-yourself 
       revolution, they are breathing new life into many time-
       honored skills and crafts. Blacksmithing is among the 
       trades that are enjoying a resurgence for both practical 
       and artistic uses, yet there is not an abundance of 
       readily accessible information available to beginning 
       blacksmiths to help them get started and understand the 
       craft. Author Ryan Ridgway, a veterinarian and blacksmith 
       with more than fifteen years of metalworking experience, 
       hopes to fill that void with this comprehensive volume 
       geared toward answering the many questions that new 
       blacksmiths often have. By explaining the physics of 
       moving metal, the different styles of anvils and forges, 
       and alternative fuel sources, Ridgway sets his book apart 
       from less detailed volumes. Forty practical, easy-to-
       follow projects are presented, showing aspiring 
       blacksmiths how to make tools, such as hammers and 
       chisels; farm implements, such as gate latches and hoof 
       picks; and items for home use, including drawer pulls and 
       candle holders.  Inside The Home Blacksmith:  The 
       evolution of blacksmithing around the world and the 
       differences between the tools specific to each region  The
       behavior of heated metal and the science of metalworking  
       Setting up a shop safely and economically  The heart of 
       your shop-the anvil and forge-and the other essential 
       tools Working with different types of steel, including how
       to salvage steel for different uses  Techniques from 
       beginning to advanced  Step-by-step instructions for forty
       blacksmithing projects: tools and other implements as well
       as decorative pieces for personal use or sale"--|cProvided
