Sustainable Agricultural Mechanization

Agricultural engineering in development – Intermediate blacksmithing: a training manual

As with the previous volume, Basic blacksmithing, all practice jobs described here have been well tried and tested. Again, this second volume is. intended to help instructors who are training blacksmiths for work in rural areas in developing countries. The contents are not intended to be lesson plans, which should be the responsibility of the instructors themselves. I have assumed, for the purposes of this book, that the more modern welding processes (oxyacetylene and arc) are not available. If the techniques in Basic blacksmithing have been mastered, the work explained here should not present major difficulties.
