Coal forge

This forge was found in a pile of junk headed to the dump. It had homemade hand cranked blower that worked pretty good, but the wooden handle grip was gone. So it was a little uncomfortable to use cranking with a metal rod. You can see the sprockets still on there, I have all the parts to it still. I got a bathroom vent fan and duct taped a length of pvc conduit and fed that into the pipe were the blower was. It actually works really well and is very quite. I think I might try hooking up a dimmer switch to it and see if that will let me regulate the flow. I lined around the "tuyeer" with some firebrick I had left over from building small gas forge (its in the background of this pic at the top) then the rest of the brick is stuff I had laying around. The scalloped landscape bricks make decent holders. All the brick is loose.
