Blacksmith Shoppe

Standard

Today we visited the Blacksmith.  They used iron and steel, which were the black metals. They pulled the bellows to blow air into the fire.  This made the fire hotter and around 3,000 degrees.  The metal would become orange and allow them to shape it.   They made things used in the colony such as hinges, nuts and bolts, nails, and a punch.   It smelled like coins inside and was very hot!
