Refining Hammer Control with Russ Jennings 5.22.17
Mon, May 22, 2017, 6:30 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
The hammer is the tool you use most as a smith; this class will refine how you use it. We will start with proper ergonomics of how to swing the hammer, and how to position yourself around the anvil. After that, we will work on various drills to leave fewer hammer marks on the surface of our work. The ultimate goal of the class is to allow students to hammer more efficiently and more productively, needing less cleanup to be performed with files and sandpaper.
Minimum of 3 students required to run the class & a maximum of 8.
If the class does not reach minimum enrollment 3 days prior, it will be canceled.
Students will have the option of transferring their ticket to another class or receiving a refund.
Please provide us with BOTH a contact number & email to ensure you are properly notified of course changes.
Class Requirements: Appropriate shop clothing: (natural fiber clothing, long sleeves/ jeans is the typical minimum recommended) closed toe shoes (leather steel toe boots recommended).
No experience necessary.
