They used hammers, an anvil, and a fire to sculpt and pound things like pots and pans out of metal. see: what did a colonial blacksmith make?
yes they were considered peasants in a way
It depends on how good the blacksmith is, and what company they work for, and where they work at, (like country or different places around the world, because some countries have a higher paying job than they might get paid in the USA or something).
Blacksmiths made armory and repairs for the armies. They made and sold weapons and horse shoes. The Blacksmith did anything that involved working iron to a desired shape and hardness. These included swords, horse shoes, armor for solders, keys, locks, shields, daggers, lances, arrow heads, tools, nails, doors, portcullis, chains, instruments, knives, ornaments, decorative objects, and jewelry.
Blacksmiths make items out of metal.
Agricultural tools, iron rims for wheels, fireplace racks, andirons, pothooks, locks, and utensils. They also repaired metal items. (colonial)
They made horseshoes .
during ww1 the army got around mostly by horse and used mules instead of trucks. blacksmiths shod the animals.
nothing dout my serch
they used metal for raw materials
They use a hammer,drills, and other stuff
It does not matter what gender the person is to be a blacksmith. I have seen both men and women blacksmiths.
Blacksmiths played a vital role in communities in the 1800s. Working with iron and steel, they forged horseshoes, farm instruments, wrought iron gates and fencing, cooking utensils and even wagon wheels and other wagon parts such as springs. They repaired vital components of agricultural equipment and were also able to fashion weapons.
Yes there are still Blacksmiths. Most Blacksmiths do it for fun. A portion of those blacksmith full time for a living.
There doesn't seem to be real name for a blacksmith's hammer. (At least I have not found any specific names for it....)
As a blacksmith, one of the most common hammers I use is called a cross pein. The other is a ball pein. Some companies will call a cross pein hammer a blacksmith hammer.
There is no real answer for how the first blacksmith made his tools because most of that information is lost in time. My guess is the first blacksmith used wooden tools and kept them wet to limit the burning. the first hammer was probably a rock and the first anvil another rock.
Today when i make a tool I take a long piece of steel and heat one end so that i can shape it. Iron transfers heat very slowly down the steel so i can hold it with a gloved hand without burning myself. If i have to shape both ends then I shape and finish one end and then cool it in water so it is cool to the touch. I can then heat and shape the other end.
Blacksmiths originated in the middle east about 3000 years B.C. They first welded dishware and other such items.
Horseshoes, hinges, cabinet handles (pulls), steel belts to go around wagon wheels, to name a few.
There are several ways to forge an axe I will try and explain one method:
the fist step is to find a piece of mild steel about 3 inches by 5 inches by 3/8 of an inch (7.5mm by 125 mm 9.5 mm.) and a piece of high carbon steel about 4 inches by 1 inch by 3/8 of an inch. (100mm by 25mm by 9.5 mm)
Heat and spread both ends of the the 3 inch of the steel into a fan shape. Make sure both fans are the same size and shape. Fold the mild steel in half leaving room for an eye for the handle. Heat and taper the long sides the steel to a point.
Start forge welding the mild steel from about 1/3 the distance from the eye to just about 3/4 inch (19mm)from the edge of the fan shape. Shape the hole the the wood handle is inserted in.
Match the steel to the curve of the of the fan. Forge weld the mild steel and high carbon steel together. Harden and temper the edge of the axe. Grind the axe to its final edge.
My personal thinking on this is that they really haven't changed the world much. Many horses are happy because of them and people have gotten some useful tools due to the blacksmith, but these aren't earth shaking.
Blacksmiths used a large array of tools, but the ones you hear about most are the forge, bellows, anvil, hammer, and tongs.
