Professional Smithing
Second Astragal Press Edition

Donald Streeter

 

Includes updated supplier list and historical photographs!

This is one of the very few manuals written by a recognized professional smith; in this case, one with over 50 years' experience, whose work appears in hundreds of restorations throughout the country. The book has long been unavailable and a collector's item; this eagerly awaited reprint completely reproduces the original edition. Here traditional smithing techniques are presented in clear, step-by-step text and photographs, enabling the reader to produce high-quality, hand-forged small iron work. Included are detailed descriptions of work space layout, specialized tools and techniques, whitesmithing, toolmaking, and locksmithing.

Mr. Streeter demonstrates not only how things are done, but how they can best be done by others. There is special emphasis on the crafting of early high-quality, handforged kitchen utensils, fireplace tools, locks, keys, and decorative ironware: hinges, hasps, latches, bolts, hooks, springs, and more. Students and professional and semi-professional smiths will find this volume of great practical value as will collectors of early American ironwork, owners of colonial houses, historians, preservationists and restorationists — in fact, anyone interested in knowing how these early products were made.

144 pages. 257 illustrations. 8-1/2 x 11. Soft cover. © 1980, 2E 2008.
