Love of Craft: Britain's Oldest Blacksmith

Metalworking, whether forging, stamping, welding or machining metals, is the world’s most important craft. Without our craftwork, we would not have our modern way of life. What is your story about love of your “craft?”

We’ve come a long way in our shops from the days of the blacksmith, but Hardy Fred Harriss explains the love all of us as craftsmen have for our craft.

With more than 70 years of working at the forge under his belt, Mr. Harriss says, “It’s a wonderful craft: the king of trades, really.”

What is your “love of craft story/ How did you get interested in precision machining?
