Here are the tools, techniques and projects for amateurs with widely varying skill and equipment levels. There are four levels of blackpowder hobby gunsmithing: Kitchen Table, Home Workshop, Hobby Plus Help, and Academic. Kitchen Table work can be done on a kitchen table with a sturdy, portable board as a working surface to protect the tabletop. The tools required are basic: screwdriver, small hammer, pliers etc. Some of the kits discussed in this book can be done by kitchen table smithing. This includes minor repairs and alterations to muzzle-loading firearms, plus basic adjustments, modest embellishments and refinishing projects. The Home Workshop level is done in a reasonably well equipped workplace. There are many home shops containing tools that range from basic to semi-sophisticated. Some home workshops even rival professional gunshops and include lathes and high quality power tools. All of the blackpowder kits included in this text can be built in a home workshop. Hobby Plus Help builds upon the Home Workshop level. Gun repair, embellishment, customizing, personalizing, and all aspects of muzzleloader smithing. Custom building can be successfully accomplished by the hobbyist who hires a little professional help. The hobbyist tackles all aspects of the project that he and his tools can handle. Then, he calls on the professional gunsmith to drill that precise hole, heat-treat that important part or blue a barrel. The fourth level of blackpowder hobby gunsmithing is the Academic approach. Not all smithing can be done by the hobbyist or the local pro, but this does not excuse hobby smith from understanding the problem or adjustment. This book is a depository of information for the muzzleloader fan who may not want to build his own kit. These are the four levels embodied in this book for everyone who loves the smoke 'n' boom game.
