    Multiple tuyeres

    That is pretty classic for sword heat treating forges.

    Starting a forge

    I dont have a set fuel, both is easily accessible. My plan is to eventually forge in my garage. Ill have the forge at the back with the.garahe door open for ventilation. I have access to your common tool box with family.members having more sophisticated tools. I have a basic skill set but again my father in law is pretty handy.

    Starting a forge

    I apologize, when you do this a wile, some things just become so common you don’t think about it. In this case it is the fact that the stock lays on the hearth and the center of the fire is at hearth level.

    What did you do in the shop today?

    Charles, how is the new forge working out? Love the stand.. Why lower? and how much compared to the traditional knuckle height.. Just curious nothing more..

    Multiple tuyeres

    Must say, I've never seen that configuration but an interesting idea none the least, would make for a big fire with all three running.

    Starting a forge

    Man, not to sound ungrateful, but the fact that those were scaled drawings would've been REALLY good to know in the post that they're contained in! I've been scratching my head on specific dimensions for a charcoal-fired JABOD for awhile now (specifically where the stock should be relative to the top of the tuyere) because I'm having limited success in getting decent heats with mine... I end up fiddling with it for an hour, get fed up with how slow things are, and break out the propane forge just so I can accomplish something in the limited time I have remaining.

    I doubt you will get an answer, seeing as Horseshoer1983 hasn't been on the forum since 1/3/2010.

    Multiple tuyeres

    I was thinking 3 pipes in a side blast configuration. Roughly 12" long by 4" wide. One pipe coming in from each end and one at 6". I would block the ones on the ends with fire brick when not in use.

    Just a photo.

    It has been hitting in the 90s and doing anything means sweating buckets here.

    Multiple tuyeres

    You probably need to expand on the "multiple tuyeres" do you mean one pipe with many holes in a bottom blast configuration or more than one pipe in a side blast.

    Started Power Hammer Project

    Finally back to making some headway on this project; I wired up the compressor, had a flexible hose made, and ordered some air hose from Northern....also took apart the cylinder, reamed out the end cap port, cleaned, resembled and primed it. When funds permit, I still need to order the valves.

    T-Stakes for Tongs? Maybe?

    My go to unbending fork is a tree with a crotch in it, if it's a stubborn bend I slip a pipe over the post to get more leverage. I've straightened hundreds this way cold, and there is usually a tree like this within walking distance of the fence line

    Noob with first charcoal forge

    Charles Thank you for the input I looked a few of the JAPOB forges. I'm trying to keep thing contained in the grill shell for ease of moving in and out of my shop, for now. I rearranged my brick layout last night but didn't get a chance to try it out. O moved the brick into a more V shape, moved the tuyere to the bottom, and changed out to a 1 inch ID pipe. Is my V shape to wide? I have a LB from a electrical project that I'm going to but the hairdryer on to use as a waste gate to help limit the amount of air I push to the fire. I will keep my eyes open for small fans. has anyone tried a computer case fan? I have a couple of those sitting around but they run on 5 volts DC. Thomas. I emailed the NMABA contact account last night I'll see if I hear back from them. Again thanks to everyone

    Uncle Al !!! Why????

    Peppie is right and where you live it should be no problem findin a certified welder to build it just keep your plan simple prep all the parts for the guy if ya can.Go down to your local welding supply shop chances are they can give ya the name of a certified welder that does small projects on the weekends for cash .What i did for the hydraulics is go to the supply shop told them what i wanted which is basically the workin parts of a wood splitter he done up a diagram to hook up everything up then i got a 5hp motor and had a friend wire it up.I think i had 12 hrs of welding time in mine at most 20 theres a referance for ya to ask a price on, i built a simple h frame nuthen fancy.You might save some money by askin around it defenitly won't hurt anyway good luck hopefully this helps ya...

    Uncle Al !!! Why????

    Thanks to everyone for their encouragement. I really appreciate it. Yeah, for now I am going to just keep my eyes peeled for a good used press, and just keep on saving my money so I can afford uncle Al's. Whichever comes first. Looking for a local group that is toying with doing a workshop is a great suggestion, or maybe I could get the ball rolling here with my local abana group. We shall see what the future holds. Thanks again everyone. -josh

    What did you do in the shop today?

    Rebuilt my portable anvil stand. Lowered it two inches (buy replacing the block with one rabeted to fit lower) changed the tool loops for racks and rebuilt the clamps

    Forges 101

    1st test drive. Still needs the seal and some tuning. Overall pretty happy with the design. The nice even heat and low turn down will be handy to HT small knives when I eventually learn that skill. These after about 5 min. Run time.
