Organized in 1978, the Appalachian Blacksmiths Assn. is an affiliate of ABANA. We represent blacksmiths, bladesmiths, and farriers in West Virginia and its surrounding states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, and Kentucky. 

We publish a quarterly newsletter which keeps our membership up to date on events. The newsletter also features many metalworking tips.

NOTICE:  The Appalachian Blacksmiths Association does not design or build power hammers for sale.  The ABA has built a Rusty and a Dusty power hammer based generally on these plans, and then raffled both power hammers as fundraisers.  The plans for Rusty, Dusty, and Super Rusty are owned by, designed by, and sold by Jerry Allen of The Wizard's Forge and are presented here as a pubic service by the ABA for blacksmiths looking for an inexpensive alternative to commercial power hammers.  As with any such project, you could be injured when building the machine or using it after it is completed. 



The Appalachian Power Hammer--a power hammer that you can build from new or used stuff no matter where you live.


NOTE:  RUSTY, DUSTY, and SUPER RUSTY are variations of the plans depending on the hammer weight and drive assembly that you choose.  There is just one set of plans--not three.  You can order simple plans or detailed, color-coded plans.
