    [QUOTE=smiler;344739]I can remember a similar set up from when I was a boy, ( Donkeys years ago) we used it for general repairs, there was a blacksmith in the village who did the shoeing and larger jobs DS can probably tell me if I'm right, I recall there was an array of hammers of different weights and shapes./QUOTE]

    You've remembered one of the most important things in the forge - the array of hammers. To a proper craftsman smith, the actual weight of the correct hammer for the job in hand was one of the most important factors.
