I just got started with blacksmithing, with the help of my supervisor at work who is a "hefty" woman in her 50's. Now I'll have that mental picture next time I'm sharing a forge with her, not to mention the next design meeting at work.Toot,
Somewhere I have a first -hand account of these lady Nailers;
It was a very hot job, working over the forge, and they sometimes worked stripped to the waist.
They never shoed horses, as they were nailers.
Thanks a lot.
