As proposed, someone should definitely merge this with redsmith. They are the same thing! I'd do this if I knew the process. Maybe someone with the knowledge cares enough?

- My grandfather was a coppersmith in the RAF during the 1940s and later. He didn't specialise in artistic work, although my Grandmother had a model of a spitfire he cast from a single (old UK) penny. His work was on aircraft maintenance in copper, brass and bronze. No one in my family has ever heard of a 'redsmith' =- perhaps its a US term?

Quenching vs. annealing[edit]

Does one quench copper? I thought quenching was for ferrous metals, and was a hardening technique. This needs to be fixed in the article. It starts out saying annealing, then describes quenching. PuggBottom (talk) 20:34, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Working with copper has much in common with the working of alloys of copper like brass (brazing)
