Hey, everyone. I haven't been actively on ArtMetal for a while, but I have been trying to keep up with the postings.
I have been making these hooks. I am not sure what is fair to charge for them. I am selling them mostly to friends and aquaintances.

Only five more days and I leave for the Southern Ohio Forge and Anvil (SOFA) QuadStates Roundup in Troy, Ohio. I can hardly wait! This is without a doubt one of the best blacksmithing conferences in the country.

I'm finally back home and somewhat rested up from the Atlantic Coast Blacksmiths Conference at Ashokan, NY. What a truly great conference!
The featured demonstrators, Mark Aspery, Peter Ross and David Norrie were all very good, with different styles and deliveries, providing something to suit almost anyone. Mark Aspery's style of teaching seemed to suit my style of learning particularly well, as he focused on explaining the "why" of things rather than just the "how." I would love to spend some time taking instruction from him. I did pick up a copy of his book, "The Skills of A Blacksmith, Volume 1", and from what I have read so far it is a really excellent teaching tool for the beginning blacksmith and a great reference for the professional as well. I'm sure you'll all see me quoting from it in the future.

Well, I'm allmost all packed-up and ready to go to the airport to head North. I'll try to get some good pictures at the conference to post when I get back. No laptop on this trip, so I'll be incommunicado except by cellphone (maybe) until I return. Y'all play nice while I;m gone, okay?
