The focus will be on the tools needed to hand forge a scroll, specifically the Scrolling Wrench and Scrolling Tongs.
Victoria Ritter (CBA III Instructor) will present the Scrolling Wrench which can be used for any bending work (think square corners) as well as for scrolls. The wrench can be forged to whatever size needed, with the most typically used sizes being discussed, along with the forging methods used.
Dennis Dusek (CBA Instructor) will present the Scrolling Tongs. The tongs will be forged using the power hammer with explanations of the tooling used in the presentation. The steps to forging a set of scrolling tongs are the same whether you hand-hammer or use an assist, the techniques covered will be applicable whether you have a power hammer or not.
Both presentations fulfil the CBA level II curriculum requirements.
Time 5:30pm Pacific -1.5 hours of presentation with extra time for questions time, Experienced Novice to Intermediate level smith.
Mix of graphics, still photos and edited video. A handout on the Power Hammer tooling and tong schematics will be made available.
