I have been interested in learning metalsmithing for many years, but
with no local classes available, I never got started. Finally
decided to use the internet and books to teach myself all I can and
just to jump in and get started. Buying a few quality tools along,
most recently a German-made saw and some sheet copper, brass, and
sterling. Next is a torch and flex shaft, after I work out some sort
of ventilation in my spot in the garage. Excited to get started!
