Black Smith - Draw Plates And Hammers
Photograph - Hdr Photography
On the left are devices known as draw plates. These devices are used to make a thick rod into a long thinner rod. The rod is forced through progressively smaller and smaller holes until you get what you want. These are meant for a blacksmith primarily. The devices on the right are known in the trade as hammers. Hammers are used to pound things. It was quickly learned that pounding metal with your bare hands, especially hot metal wasn't as effective as using a hammer. Blacksmiths probably have the largest variety of hammers known in the building trades.
