  1. Thank you for all the ideas and insight from experience. I am hearing more and more about the side blast - I will have to research that some more just to be in-the-know.
  2. My second welding project - getting better at it but plenty of room for improvement! This project was a Welding Cart to keep everything organized - this project is so me (I have a weird need to keep things in order - OCD I guess)! Will finish it with a coat of paint when it isn't 10 degrees out. It keeps my welder and plasma cutter "mobile" and everything I need all in one place. One less idea just banging around in my head now - hopefully it gives you an idea of something similiar you may find helpful. BTW - it was all scrap yard finds.
  3. Thank you men for the ideas! Hopefully in the next couple months I will be able to post the end product!

    Like the "short end" storage idea.
  5. DSW - thank you for the link to your forge - that gave me some ideas! You're a good man!
  6. arftist - thank you for the info and encouragement to give making my own a try. When you say "use gasser most often", I'm not sure what you mean - can you explain that to me a little more? Thank you.
  7. Yes, I am scheduled to take the intro course in Midland starting next Tuesday (Feb. 10). Looking forward to working in the great facility here. I will further check out the MABA group.
  8. NJ - thank you for pointing me in the direction of the introduce yourself.
  9. Greetings from Michigan - I am just starting out with blacksmithing and looking to tap into the knowledge and experience of the men and women in the forums. I am an IT guy by trade and in my spare time I love to work with my hands and anything physical in nature. My hobbies include photography, woodworking, building and most recently blacksmithing and metalworking (welding, ...). I enjoy designing things and seeing creations come to life through hard work. I work hard and play hard -- driven by the quote from Thomas Edison "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.". I look forward to chatting with many of you and learn and give insight along the way!
  10. Building my own forge and going to use 1/4" plate for the table portion and thinking about a cast iron firepot but not sure which ones are best and where you suggest I pick one up.
