    Hey Andy,

    I'd love to give this a try. Where about's in Glasgow are you? I seen there where some blacksmithing courses in a college in Glasgow but they are over a load of weeks and I can't commit to that at the moment. This sounds right up my street and happy to pay for your time.

    Cheers

    Hi chap, the workshop is in Ibrox, five minute walk from Ibrox subway station - just down the road from the Rangers stadium.

    All the best

    Quality day today lads enjoyed every minute, chuffed with my hooks. Ian and I finished the day off with a trip to the huntarian museum where we found a Roman hammer where the Smith had engraved his name, a nice wee end to the day! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Cracking day chaps. I'm sorry I had to kick you all out early but I completed my DIY mission successfully so that was good.

    Yeah we'll be doing it again. I had a great time. Need to sort a couple more sets of tongs and get another anvil on the go etc.

    Will keep you guys posted. But feel free to shoot me a pm if you have a free weekend and want to pop in for a couple of hours.

    All the best
    Andy

    Don't say that. I'll set up camp by the front door. You might need a restraining order
