Fundamentals of Tool Making
Mark will lead students through the process of making tools with 3/4" 4140 steel. An emphasis will be placed on clean forging to provide a good finish and heat-treatment of the tools so that they will last through the various projects you wish to use them on in your home shop.
NOTE: Intermediate to Advanced class. Students must have prior forging experience. Not appropriate for beginners.
