At this year’s Penrith District Show we are again privileged to have Ray Lincoln, a fourth generation blacksmith in Australia, entertaining the public with his blacksmithing talents.
Mr Lincoln has been working with hot coals and glowing red iron since he was 14 years of age at his father’s Bankstown shop in 1942.
He is somewhat of a celebrity blacksmith, delighting people young and old with his humourous yet educational routine at the various country shows in New South Wales.
He has been a regular face at the Sydney Royal where he has become a popular attraction after exhibiting in the Carlton Clydesdale Horse stables for the past 44 years.
Come and visit Ray as he demonstrates his trade throughout the Show and toils over a coal fire and anvil with his tools with steelwork.
