Meet Tinsmith Walt Fleming

American Craftsmen Show Tinsmith Walt Fleming
Walt Fleming has been a tinsmith for over 30 years working in his mid-1840's tin shop. His specialty is rare early lighting, pierced lanterns, closet safe panels, whale oil, candle and folk art.  Most of his work is done with 100+ year old tinplate and replacing missing/broken parts on early tinware/lighting pieces so it is very difficult to detect the repairs. Walt Fleming is extremely proud of his service in the United States Marine Corps. 
Walt Fleming is from Ballston Lake, New York.
