  7. Hello my name is Kyle. I set up a small forge at my house and started forging iron a couple weeks ago. I realy dont have a clue what im doing but im enjoying learning. I come from an custom Automotive fabrication and railroad back ground so im not completly ignorant when it come to metal working but this is my first atempt at forging. i have made a few spike knives but thats it so far. I dont have many tools for this stuff but im making do so far I do have a good anvil and a few hammers other than that im working with plyers and vise grips. i guess my Question is is there anyone close to here that would let me swing by and get some advice and point me in the direction of some good tongs and such. Thanks Kyle
