  1. Yeah I do have a cover, I just didn't have it on at the time when I took the pictures. It's also the way I control my air flow.
  2. Sorry I haven't responded, I've been a bit busy and haven't checked in on this thread. I bought the blower from Kanye & Son; here's the link to the blower: https://www.blacksmi...CFM_Blower.xml/ Thank you all for the helpful critiques and nice comments.
  3. I'd like to go to the annual FABA conference, but I'm a college student and I'm already scheduled to be at an engineering conference in Orlando that same weekend.
  4. I'm not part of FABA yet, I'm still just trying to get started.
  5. Thanks for all the advice, here are updated pictures of my forge.
  6. I went in a bit over my head but I really happy with the results, fired it up for the first time yesterday and it was hot enough to melt a 1/2" steel rod. My fire pot is a bit goofy due to a mistake on one of the cuts but it works just fine. Please forgive my ugly welding job.
  7. Thanks for the replies, I took your guys' advice and cleaned it up a bit with a wire wheel and then oiled it with some WD-40. Unfortunately I was unable to find any markings or indications as to who made it or when it was made, although I discovered that once in it's lifetime it had been painted red.
  8. I recently bought this monster for $350, I don't really see any markings anywhere on the anvil. I was hoping you guys might be able to tell me more about this anvil and whether or not this was a good buy.
