  1. I was thinking of doing just that. The brake drum in the anvil picture was the one I was going to use. Thanks for your input
  2. New guy here that has no idea what he's doing. Trying to get a cheap forge goin, just to see if it's something I want to do for any length of time. I've done a bunch of research, and I was wondering if any of you had suggestions. I've built a forge outta wood, pvc, refractory caulk, and dirt. Dirt being the "firepot." It gets hot, quick, but it's doing a number on my wood. If I shaved down the burned parts on the sides, and painted with some kind of heat paint, do you think it would work? Or am I going about this all the wrong way? Bonus pic of the anvil I bought off a guy that didn't know what he had. the wood is mostly 2x6's, cut to 18" long. The fire started to get hot enough to turn a railroad tie orange, but then the sides caught on fire haha I would've rather done made this out of metal, and welded the thing together. I don't know how to weld, and I don't have any buddies that do either. So wood and nails were used. Thanks for any help!
