The next meeting of the Niagara section will be Sunday, February 11, 2018, at Andy Chambers’ shop. Coffee and donuts at 8:30 AM and demonstration starting at 9:00 am. All are welcome.
The plan is to demonstrate a welded fire poker. This can be a good weld to start on, if you have some basic experience already. I hope we’re are up to the challenge.
Dress warmly, as the shop will be colder inside than out. Bring tools and safety equipment (safety glasses, gloves, hearing protection) and bring stuff for work on your own projects if you like.
Interested visitors may attend two regional monthly meetings for free. Contact me with questions. To work in the shop, one must join the New York State Designer Blacksmiths. There is membership and fee information available on the NYSDB Website. See the the Niagara Region page for directions and a map to our meeting location.
There’s a $5 meeting fee for members. Our meetings start with a demo at 9:00 and forge work from 9-12, lunch, a raffle of donated items, and then more hands-on work from 1-3.
