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.

Bernie 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.
