  1. Hello Everybody, I came across this old firepot and tuyere. I would like some help identifying it it's big 16x12, I have never seen a clinker breaker like this. If anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated. There was an ash dump lid on the bottom. I'm going to clean it up this afternoon to see if I can make out any markings. Thanks
  2. I'm in the processing of creating a new forge and I want to know what YOURS is made of. Any recommendations on where to buy fire pots, blowers, sheet metal, etc.? How's it working for ya? Also, for those with a forge but WITHOUT a welder, did you have your forge pieces welder for you? Thanks! (below is the kind of forge I'm going for)
  3. I've been following the "portable side blast forge" thread with growing interest as it looks like a good way to go. However there are some aspects that are a bit foggy for me, for example, the bosh volume. Mark Aspery has a design for a tuyere and bosh Building the Side Blast Forge That design calls for a tank that's going to hold 16 gallons or so, and the instructions specify that it keeps the water from boiling off. I found this company that makes tuyere's and boshes, however the dimensions listed would put the bosh capacity at around 9 gallons. I'd be using a 2-1/2"
  4. Hey all, I have another Old forge table I am trying to rehab. I believe this table is a Champion no 8. it came with original 400 blower that still works and the firebox with is pretty solid still. I located a tuyere from the same era.... and it matches some pictures i have seen...but i have not seen this kind of grate on firebox before in the pic you will see that it dips down into the tuyere about 2 1/2 inches. This Clinker breaker actually come out of the tuyere about 1 inch.... So I have a problem.... other than that it mates up well and once i get it drilled and threaded i can m
  5. Does anyone have or have information on a Champion Whirlwind 712 forge pot? I recently acquired one that is missing the clinker breaker but is in otherwise great shape. I would like to know a few things... of what material should the clinker breaker be made so as to sink less heat from my fire and does anyone have a picture of one of these fire pots? (here is a picture of one like mine only with the clinker breaker but I cannot see it well enough to copy its design) Thank you in advance for your kind consideration, Bill
  6. Hi guys, First post here but I've been getting lots of inspiration from you all recently! I'm currently in the process of building my coal forge and hope to have it completed tonight. I'll post a build report later, I think you'll like it... Anyway, I have a quick question for you - I am looking to attach my blower to the inlet pipe on my tuyere. It has a square outlet around 3 1/2 ". My fabricated inlet pipe is 3" square. I have also fabricated an air gate with a 3" square opening which will be operated from the side, forming a more or less rectangular opening depending on the position. My qu
  7. I am in the process of building a forge. Anyhow, I happen to also do lapidary work and know that silicon carbide (carborundum) is extremely durable material and has a melting point around 5000 degrees F. Has anyone used carborundum as a tuyere on a coal/coke forge? Crucibles for smelting ore or metals are made from Carborundum. I did a search and some furnaces use a carborundum tuyere. An old carb wheel with a 1 inch hole could be fitted or a piece could be cut to fit and drill some holes in it with a diamond bit in a dremel or drill motor. I would think that it would last for years and
  8. I am building a forge but I think buying a cast firepot assembly may be more functional in the long run. Do any of you know a good place to buy an inexpensive firepot assembly?
  9. I've been attempting to setup a home smithy shop for 40 years. When I was a young guy scouring the desert area around Mojave, CA with my buddies, I came across a repair shop at the Silver Queen Mine, just south of Mojave. I remember popping my head in and saw several workers swinging hammers down on a bent glowing red rod, hammering it straight. The anvil is what caught my eye. 28 years later, I was doing some work for oil companies in Bakersfield, CA and was reading a local classified and came across an ad for "an old anvil". I called the number listed and arranged to see it. The gent e
  10. Hi all I am new to Blacksmitting (well havent started yet, building a forge) i am trying to let an old dream come true... and as this forum gave me the idea on how to build this forge, i like to share with you the progress ;) this is the firepot... it has an opening of 13" X 10" and is 4 1/2" deep, it is made of 1/2" steelplate and this is the air intake on top of the firepot. i think it is called Tuyere in english im sorry if my english writing is a bit off as i am from Iceland and is not very good at writing english. :( hopefully i can post more pic tomorrow
