Forging in Hope Missouri



Today we visited Joe's shop in Hope Missouri. Joe has been a little under the weather. He might tell you a lot, but he is doing much better.




videoBernie uses Joe's trip hammer.





The reason for our visit was to help Joe forge 6 hinges for doors on a restored log cabin.








Now this is what you call a clinker!






The hinge will look something like this.



One of the two doors with the 6 hinges laying on the floor.
