    Recently I purchased a leg vice and receive a parts vice. I've assembled both to the point needing 1 screw box. Now in 2017 is there any more current information on this subject of leg vice screw box. Thanks in advance Honcho [email protected]

    Gas forge and burner.

    I sure hope the blue kettle isn't a Weber grill. That sure was a ole classic and I thing some of the BBQers would be crying if the saw this... signed BBQ Honcho But the Idea sure looks like a good one to me

    It takes money to blacksmith !!!!

    If you look at my profile, you'll see hobbies that cost $. Seems to be the way I do things. 1 thing I did learn when BBQin is you can learn on your own and spend lots on meat to throw away. Or you can take a class. But I didn't see that on any list, I could have missed it But that can be the place you don't want to cut corners. Good classes will save BIG $$ in meat and supplies I see the same thing happening here. I joined http://www.nysdb.org/ Every meeting the elders ( LOL, I'm 57 ) teach us something. I can't thank them enough Somethings don't seem to mean anything, till you look at the whole picture. I'm just a new guy here trying to learn, Oh thanks for all your help n clues. You want to learn bbq, I can help, I owe Y'all

    Got my first small coal forge, need advice

    I also have 1 just like that. I used a pipe bender and made new legs for mine. The threads were all rusted thin causing it to wobble. Mine screw in. I looked on eBay all the time to learn the name of the tools and equipment Blacksmiths use. I saw 1 there for $2300 ( all painted pretty) and still going. I forgot about it for a few days, by the time I got back it was gone and I didn't see the price it went for. I was told not to burn in it till I put in some heat cenment. I hope to this weekend. I stopped at the hardware store and picked up a cast iron drain cover for the sewer vent for $6 and change. Think I'll trim the 4 legs off the cast iron to lower it to the floor of the pot and install the cenment the way Phil said. Thanks Phil..I gotta get the new phone to post the event
