This class will be September 9th, 10th, & 11th
8am-5pm will be the maximum time we will have to work each day, I enforce this because I need to have time to get prepared for the next day.
$850.00 per class (maximum of 6 people)
You will be making a pair of Spurs that will be yours to keep, all materials will be provided (for 1 pair of spurs). We will be using waterjet parts and I will also demonstrate other methods of cutting and fabricating. We will bend bands, slot shanks, weld shanks (tig and mig), shape and file rowels, build button hangers, shape and polish all parts. Basic silver soldering will be demonstrated. The amount of time that we spend on silver soldering and clean up will be determined by how quickly your spurs are completed and ready to be mounted. I will furnish silver initials that can be soldered onto your spurs or you can bring a simple brand with you that you cut out at your shop. You will be restricted to a minimal amount of soldering simply because we will be limited on time. We will go through the post solder clean up process and apply a finish to the spurs. There will not be any engraving on these spurs; however, I will discuss my engraving process.
I have 5 Outlaw Grinder stations setup to allow each student to work at their own pace and not be pressured to hurry. Basic understanding of metal fabrication will be beneficial to you but not required.
There is an RV park 3 miles from here and a small motel 3 miles from here. Or there is a small motel in Spur that is about 8 miles from here.
