|For September, the Journal covers some interesting work in the form
of a sea shell, a spring "fullering" tool with interchangable dies
a way to make a lap joint using a striker or treadle hammer.
||The feature on a 19th century door
latch concludes in the August issue
with information on how to make
the cam lock, keeper and knob.
|Sea shells are challenging
subjects for blacksmiths.
Their natural scroll-like forms
can be duplicated in steel
as shown this month.
|Lap joints can be used to splice parts
together, especially in architectural
applications. Step by step instructions
and variations are in the September issue.
