A new basic, but useful, skill

I was lucky enough to be given an introductory lesson in blacksmithing recently which was a real blast.  Managing a coke forge, scroll work, twisting, punching, cutting, riveting and heat treatment.  The hardest lesson learned was to resist the urge to pick up things with your bare hands.  I cant wait to get back and try my hand at a big project.
