Hello everyone, I’m Trevor from Southern California. I’ve been forging for about 12 years. I started out with self-teaching basics then took CBA classes at the Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum in Vista, CA for about 2 years. Since then I went on to finish a BA in visual art and an MFA in Jewelry and Metal Art. I love pattern welding, and the bulk of my MFA thesis portfolio is sculptural and wearable pattern welded pieces. I forge on my rural property, with a 100lb. Trenton, Chili 2-burner forge, and 50lb Little Giant. I also enjoy fabrication and will employ a Bridgeport mill and Logan lathe into the process of my pieces. I’ll be sharing my work in this thread:
Maybe there is a thread on this topic in this very large web site. Being spanking new to this site, I can't find that thread. OK guys be gentle, I am completely new to the forging and stock removal methods in knife making. Building a propane forge is out of the realm of possibilities. I have been using a coal forge, a forged steel anvil and a Little Giant 25lb power hammer in my shop for about 2 years. I am setting up a KMG in the shop at present. That being said, I am in the market for a commercially produced 2 burner propane forge. The budget is $500 including shipping. I have looked at the Diamondback and the Majestic. Any recommendations.
