I use a very, very dirty coal. however, i can get it for $10.00 per 100#. So, brake drum forge does not work, clinker clogs the grate in minutes. so, without further adieu, the Trough style 55 side blast with chimney. Thoughts? ideas? suggestions? also, for updates about the building of this, check my blog in the blogs area, Toolception; Claw to peen. Thanks! click on the image to zoom in. thumbnail is quite small
Hi all, My next project I want to work on is building a horrizontal forge out of a 55gal metal drum. Let me try to describe: Horrizontal with the 'lids' taken off, metal wall welded halfway to decrease size of forge, half forge/half charcoal maker and evaporator. Able to work on long pieces through 'door' cut into metal wall. Vent pipe on top with blower pipe coming into bottom. Do you think this would work/ any suggestions? What should I line the barrel with to protect it as well as insulate? I've read several threads about linings but I think I'm more confused now after reading them. Trying to remain as low cost as possible
