West Virginia Armour-In
Parkersburg, WV, May 3 - 4
Booty Our weekend started at the local "can't miss it" first Saturday flea market where we were lucky and picked up a Whitney punch, several hammers and a pair of hog-ring pliers at bargain prices. Not a bad way to start a "smithy" weekend and all the tools were applicable to armoring. Later at the Armour-In we would purchase the blow-horn stake. space
Charley Pierce the guru's apprentice took advantage of the opportunity to learn to make a set of shoulder armour. Here is cutting blanks on the Beverly Shear.

Charley had assistance from Ted, Allen and "Clang". He could not have asked for better instructors.
