  1. Thanks to everyone for the ideas and support. First winter at this so it is good to know I can keep at it. I have a tarp so I will stay dry Crazy Ivan- My bellows are made from an old tractor inner tube, so I don't think it will have the issues one might with leather.
  2. OK thanks. Was wondering if it would harm anything by the temp change. What I am using for an anvil seems to suck the heat right out, so I the motto should be get it hot, hit it hard, really fast?
  3. I have not seen this addressed anywhere as of yet. The question is, can you? I have an outdoor primitive forge and when the temp gets <50 degrees outside, it just seems too cold to work. Am I missing something? Bo
  4. Thanks John, I joined NCABANA a few months back, just have not been able to make it to a meeting yet. Looking forward to it though. I have read all the past issues of the spark.
  5. A few weeks back I did an 4 day intensive on primitive blacksmith-ing. Absolutely fell in love with it. I have spent the last several weeks gathering tools and items to start hammering. Now I seem to be stumped with the anvil. At the intensive we used all manner of items, RR track, steel bricks, cast off dies, axles etc. I am having the darnedest time trying to locate something for starting. I plan on starting out with small objects and working my way up. Any helpful input would be welcomed
