  1. I read it somewhere on this site " If you can't fix it with a bigger hammer then it must be an electrical problem. "
  2. Hope these help. They are from a book called Historical Arms Making Technology. http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37993-2014-01-16-095503/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37991-2014-01-16-095518/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37990-2014-01-16-095631/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37992-2014-01-16-095542/
  3. Thank you I understand now. The way I was going to do it would probably work but it might be hard to work in.
  4. The outside of the brake drum is the same size as the bottom of the milk can so it would have to be touching the firepot unless I put it on legs.
  5. Did the guy put a handle on it before he skinned the hog?

When I attached the can I was going to take to table off.
  7. Mr. Stevens how would you attach it if you couldn't touch the fire pot? Fe-wood how far away is your chimney from the fire I couldn't really tell from your picture. I am going to try to put up some pictures when I take some.
  8. Hello everyone I have a brake drum forge and I want to put a chimney on it so I don't breath the coal smoke. My idea was to use an aluminum milk can with my forge bolted to the bottom and a piece of stove pipe on the top. What I was wondering is if the aluminum would melt.
