  1. Hey I’m new to forging and wanted to know if what I’m experiencing is normal the coating that came with the forge I put on is cracking and outside around where the burner goes is turning white any help or advice would be very appreciated Picture of the forge
  2. Greetings folks! This is a 2 part post/question. I've been scouring through IFI for a couple of days now trying to figure out what make/model of anvil I recently scored. The old guy said he got it from his grandfather who got it from his grandfather, so on and so forth. I've wired brushed it for the time being as I don't want to grind anything off and never knowing what the make/manufacturer is. I also acquired a chunk of steel in the deal and again other than the markings which are visible on the top of the mystery block of steel, again I have absolutely no idea what it is, what it was used for, etc, other than it has some decent weight to it. I've taken the liberty of attaching a series of pictures in the hopes those of you in the know nd much more experienced at picking out details otherwise overlooked could solve this mystery for me. For what it's worth I live on the Eastern most part of Canada on the island and province of Newfoundland. The reason I mention this is simply because long ago most inhabitants of Newfoundland made their way here from England, Scotland and Ireland. I suspect this is an English anvil of sorts but that's like saying I suspect my car is motorized of sorts. <sigh> Thank you all in advance.
  3. heloo people, i am not a real black smith or anything but i am an enthusiastic new metal worker and i make improvised swords and stuff i live in quite an urbanised area but there arent really any advanced hardware stores around, so i usually have to make a barbecue fire or use the kitchen stove and collect junk :D and i dont have access to proper steels. recently i started work on a knife, it normal iron,the type used by welders for making gates and ladders ( its not steel as far as i know) , and i need to harden it as much as i can because right now its not much use as the edge isnt durable, what exactly should i do? i have no access to torches or a forge or power tools, basically im in the medieval times :D what should i use to quench this knife? used motor oil or water ? pleeease help me out i really need help
