Intermediate Forging: Double Callipers

When: Sat., March 4, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. 2017

2-day class. This class covers basic tool making through a hand held ¼” round punch, and a hot cut chisel, which will be put directly to use making a set of double calipers. Very useful in most shops, we use double calipers often to check two different measurements at the same time with one tool, such as flat stock (thickness and width) or the peen on a hammer. This class covers tapering flat stock, hot cutting the fork, hot punching round holes, and riveting. Students get the satisfaction of making a functional tool from multiple forgings and connecting them with rivets to achieve tightly moving parts.
