Click to enlargeThe Key To Blacksmithing CD
compiled by Bill Lynch

This CD was put together by Bill Lynch. As he was collecting old books and catalogs, he kept getting requests to borrow them or have copes made. He meticulously scanned every page of every book and built a PC-based front end. We Mac users can look at each of the files, but the front end is a .exe. If you are looking for pictures of tools, this is the place to go.
