A few weeks ago, I shared a clip with you from new DVD by hammer-maker extraordinaire, Bill Fretz.

Today we continue to spotlight Bill’s exceptional DVDs with a look at Volume 2 of Basic Hammering and Forging.

In this clip, Bill demonstrates planishing with the Fretz HMR-1 Hammer and the Fretz anvils. I like this clip because the piece he’s working on gets great shine, texture, and form as he goes, and Bill talks about his hammering technique throughout.


Both Fretz DVDs are available at riogrande.com now.
