Peening for the Spring Festival

It’s only 12 days until the Spring Festival (previously the Smallholder Show) run by the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society. We are exhibiting Austrian scythe at the show this year and preparations are in full swing.

Edge peening a styria bladePhil has been peening his way through an impressive pile of blades, preparing them both for the festival and for our first scythe course of the year on 28th May.

If you’re wondering why he is wearing ear defenders, have a look at the video below. While scything is very quiet, peening certainly isn’t. If you do a lot of it you need to look after your hearing!
