Hello All,
I just had Karl Goebel, an Anthropology student from the University of Wisconsin-Madison come by to learn how to smelt. This was his first try at anything like this.

Here is the first part of a two part video on what happened:

He did well.

Stay tuned for part two to see what was done with the bloom.

Thanks Ric! From a pile of dirt to a billet of steel. I always go to your posts first when logging on!

R D,
I did a demo/talk at one of Dr. Jim Batson's Tannehill gatherings in Alabama titled "From Dirt to Dagger" many years ago.
I have a website by the same name which will eventually have an all hand made (no power equipment) video on how to make a completed dagger from scratch (all but growing the tree for the handle).

I have not seen this yet so I think it is a knowledge gap which needs filling.

You may find this concept interesting:
new listing in "From Dirt to Dagger" in the steel making page

Excellent! If timing (and the wife) allows, i plan on attending your 2011 steel making class! When do you think you'll be able to publish more details on the class?

Thanks,
Dustin

Great idea. Your videos are a fascinating concept for me since I may not get to attend one of your classes, so this is a very workable solution. Count me in. You could open a lot of doors for a lot of interested people with this.

Thanks for the link! I could watch this stuff all day! I've got to get over to Tannehill. Haven't been since the early 70s. Sad
