We are a blacksmith and engineering business making light forgings and sharpening picks, moils and chisels.
When the moils and chisels are sharpened a set procedure has to be followed. All the moils and chisels have to be tempered (see explanation to the right). This process needs approximately two days to complete - depending on the size (amount) of the order. Please bear with the blacksmith shop with the time frame required for your order to be completed.
We temper and sharpen knife blades for knife makers and those whose knives need to be re-sharpened.
We are equipped to make hinges to your specifications.
For other general engineering requirements please contact us with details and drawings of your specifications for a quote.
Tempering is a heat treatment technique applied to ferrous alloys, such as steel or cast iron, to achieve greater toughness by decreasing the hardness of the alloy. The reduction in hardness is usually accompanied by an increase in ductility, thereby decreasing the brittleness of the metal.
