Hammer-In 2016

Hammer-in at Ben's Mill

On July 2nd, there was a hammer-in for blacksmiths held at the forge in Ben's Mill. There were several 'Smithys' there, each ready to give a demonstration of their pet project. Lucian Avery of Hardwick gave a tutorial of making a hatchet and James Tuescher of Walden demonstrated how to make a decorative leg for the settee he had made in the past. A blacksmith from Virginia happened to see the sign outside and stopped in to join in the activities. He later came back on several weekends to do a project he had in mind. People always love to see the forge in operation. After the hammer-in, a pot luck 'supper' was held (with some help from West Barnet Quick Stop's pizza)
There have been several hammer-ins held at the mill and it is always a popular Saturday function.
