Tim Reynolds

We are sad to announce that long time OBG member Tim Reynolds of Americus passed away on 6 December 2020.  In Tim's will, he was kind enough to leave his entire collection of tools and equipment to the Guild.  The Board of Directors has been working with Tim's widow, Kathy, to inventory Tim's library of Blacksmithing books, magazines and newsletters along with the tools and equipment.
We are beyond grateful to Tim and Kathy for this generous donation.
