Pictures of hammering techniques


#1

Does anyone have any pictures of hammering techniques such as
raising, planishing, forging that I could use on my web page? I
will credit where the picture came from.

Hi Richard–Haven’t seen any on-line replies to your request for
pictures/hammering, so did some searching thru some of my older
books (from mid-70’s to late 80’s). There are 3 which are
available on the market today, probably can get them all thru
Lapidary Journal. They are “Jewelry Making” by Hamish Bowie with
excellent text and photos, black and white mostly; (2) “Jewelry
Making, An Illustraged Guide to Technique” by Dominic DiPasquale,
Jean Delius and Thomas Eckersley, and (3) “Silversmithing and Art
Metal for Schools, Tradesmen, Craftsmen” by Murray Bovin. (1)
was first published in U.S. in 1977 by Henry Regnery Co., 180
North Michigan Ave., Chicago Il 60601 Library of Congress Catalog
#76-6263; (2) in 1975 by Prentice-Hall, Inc., Englewood Cliffs
NJ, Lib. of Congress data not available, but ISBN 0-13-509836-X
and 0-13-509828-9 pbk; (3) copyrighted 1963 by author, published
in U.S. by author, Lib. of Cong #64-2766, ISBN 910280-03-7, no
publisher given. Hope this will be helpful.

Uh oh, better NOT do that, thats copyright infringement and you
could end up getting sued for using published works that are not
your own on the web…Dave
