    I am not sure, is the honest answer, as I have never seen one quite like this before. However, it seems to me that it is probably right as it is, because the blacksmiths are hitting the ingot when it is red, which is technically right - you wouldn't hit a cold bar, you'd get it red hot again before you starting hammering again.

    So to me it looks right, but that's just my thought. Other may know better.

    I believe it is correct as is also. One can count the strikes even if he can't hear the clock due to either deafness or excess noise in the room.
