  1. Hi all, I'm a newbie and just got my first solid fuel forge and hand crank blower. It's a champion (don't know the model) and the blower is in need of some TLC. It's coming along nicely however the fan has a lot of play and hits the housing to the point where it won't spin in one direction. Once the housing is removed, things seem to move fine. Gears look to be in good shape and the fan doesn't seem to have any damage. The challenge at this point is, I can't seem to get the fan off the shaft or to reduce the play to keep in from hitting the fan housing. I've loosened/removed the se
  2. Howdy smiths, I saw this posted locally for $65. I know very little about bellows except that they are big collectors items and usually sell for alot. Some nut job made this one into a table, and even though I wouldn't use it if I bought it I'd probably try to resell it. Does this look like something that I could make money on in its current state? Should I buy? Thanks
  3. New here. I'm looking for advise on fixing this up. The fan is free but the crank is locked up, I know ill have to t take it apart. Anyone have suggestions on what to do or where to start?
  4. A while back I bought for $65 a forge blower; and have been restoring it ever since. I've been attempting to remove both the grease and rust without power tools (since I'm a broke teenager), with electrolysis and simple green and a wire brush for months now. Here are some of the parts after I've cleaned them up a bit: Funny thing is that I can hardly find any information about the forge blower anywhere on the internet. Perhaps a couple listings on ebay, but that's about it. Gear casing that I just separated today. Any ideas of how I can weld the broken pie
  5. many newbies want to mill or grind the top of their anvil because they think they must have sharp edges ( and they often end up wrecking a perfectly good anvil in the process ). so here is something just for those people a block made from fork lift tine about 1 3/4" thick, 3 7/8" wide and 4 5/8" long ( 45 by 100 by 117mm ) that can be ground if required without damaging the anvil, it has a 3/4" ( 20mm ) peg to go in a hardy hole and sleeves could be made for other sizes if required. even divots for riveting could be added
  6. I'm looking for tips or any type of do's & don't's advice I can get on restoring a Peter Wright anvil. The other day I was playing with my brake drum forge. I live on the corner so people are always driving by. I had a man offer to sell me a anvil. He was a older guy real nice. Told me he bought it at a estate sale 5 years ago but can no longer be around coal so had no use for it. Right now I'm in the middle of replacing my vans head gaskets so I couldn't go see it and knew he likely couldn't text me or email pictures. I asked him everything I could about it and he felt it was in
  7. Hello everyone, I believe this is my first post on I Forge Iron. I am in some need of some help and advice. I purchased a rough Champion 401 rivet forge from a blacksmith in Townsend, DE for about $50. The blower is in pretty much mint condition, minus the wasp's nests and caked on grease and dirt I cleaned out of the fan area. The rusted out legs were basically fused into the mounting brackets, but managed to free them and replace them (took a month of chiseling and filing). I will be replacing the rusted out, paper thin base pan bottom with a new 1/8" thick plate. The only problem I am
