  1. First forge weld the weld stuck isn't the prettiest weld out there and I think I hit it too hard and caused the top ton smush over while the middle welded. And i had some problems getting one side to bend over properly.
  2. I made a thing

    Same here. Once I get better I'll attempt that.
  3. I made a thing

    I kept it in the dragons breath for a couple seconds than pull it out let it air cool for a 5 to 10 seconds. And repeat until the metal is black and the marbles solidified. Than I did that a few more times. Than I left it on top of the fire brick on the forge for about 30min than I let it cool normally.

    I'll have to take a new picture of it. But I melted them took roughly 15-20min to get all 6 of them to slump and slowly cool off.
  5. I made a thing

    At the local meet up I did a rope twist that I saw in a book my fiancé got me for Christmas. So I melted marbles into it and made. Well? A thing.
  6. Free forge

    I'll have to try that. Thanks.

    Any tips on getting anthracite coal to light easier I fought it for about 45min before it would ignite.

    I was thinking flexible aluminum dryer vent hose. If I can find it small enough.

    It's the same size as the pipe.

    Haha yea I realized the can was there. After I shut the forge off. That could've been bad. The forge seems pretty stable though. I use propane mainly but I've always wanted to play with coal. Just have to tweak with this forge a bit. Propane is easier but coal is more fun.

    I like that idea for the paddle. But I need connect to the pipe first. I have to hold it onto the pipe.
  12. Free forge

    Managed to get a free coal forge and 15 gal of non smithing coal. It burns and heats metal just a pain to get started. And a free electric blower. Still needs an air gate but it works.

    Tripod style square tubing with angle iron to hold the anvil steady.

    It has a loud but beautiful ring to it. Need to build a stand for it now.

    I'm having a hard time dealing with it being flat and nice edges. I don't know how to use those. We can hit her anytime!
