  • Dale Detrich - Visit and Photos

    On a recent business trip to Columbus, Ohio I had the pleasure of visiting Dale Detrich and his wife Jan at their home in Attica. It was a great several hours talking shop and marveling at the work Dale does in a very basic of machine shops.

    Many of you that frequent the NAMES show as well as some of the other HSM shows may know Dale and may have seen his work.

    Attached are photos of Dale in the shop and some of his work.

    All of these projects were completed on the Smithy in the photo. He even cut the tapered spokes for the gun carriage on it.

    If you have questions regarding any of Dale's projects, he can be contacted here on this BBS.

      I met Dale and talked with Him for a few minutes at the NAMES Show last April. He is a very talented man and built some real first class projects.

        WOW! Talented is an understatement.
        The fellow is gifted.
        Not to long ago, some guy was assuring everyone the Smithy's were junk!

          If the smithy's are as they say junk,
          then it goes to show that it's not the tools but the craftsman behind the tools that produces spectacular results..

          beutiful work...

                      Dale,

                      Now that I have the plans for the four cylinder engine that you built and have seen it up close, I am determined to make some shop space and get power to my equipment,( soon I hope ) so that I can begin making chips.

                        Bernard....Getting the shop set up sounds like the "IDEAL" Christmas gift for Benard... The weather here is cold and damp, just right for spending time in the nice warm shop.. I am making a lots of chips , if nothing else....Keep in touch...Dale Detrich
