  1. MT2020   the power hammer is in good working order and available.      It's a heavy thing so moving around requires planning, but I have the necessary equipment. 

    Ask me some more questions.

  4. Thanks for your replies Frosty you say -----So, my basic advice is to consider what your goals are in the craft and remember learning means mastering the basics first. As for what I want to do. I think I will start out trying artistic blacksmithing. Scrolls. leaves different shapes in general. I most likely will go in that direction. I can not use coal, I live in a residential area and I think the smoke on start up will not be appreciated. I do expect to spend a lot of time on the basics! any other recommendations?
  5. I have been reading post on gas forges now for 2 months. I am trying to learn everything I can on Gas forges. Yes I am going to buy the "Book". My question is if you did not build your own what did you buy. And what ones did you buy and hate. I am wish to learn the the basics of blacksmithing for the pure fun of learning it. As people say 1 gas forge will not do it all. but what commercial model are you using, Thanks everyone for sharing

  8. HI all, I am a newbie that is just getting started. i am wondering when i do get and anvil and a vise what is the best way to clean them up up, i.e.get the rust off. sanding it off, gridding it off, use chemicals , all the them. no nothing I trying to search this and I did not find anything. When the old anvils were ship new, were they ever painted, the body, I assume the top would not be painted. and does anyone paint the body today thank you all for being here. this site is a great resource.
