  1. Finished up my forge a few days ago. My idea was to create a simple forced air forge that can be broken down, easily serviceable and that can be easily duplicated if needed, and maybe manipulated for different types of materials I may be adding into it. Some things that I was able to do at my place of employment was TIG weld some stainless steel nozzles. Although I'm no expert in welding, I have been allowed full access to weld since apparently I have a steady hand. You will see my first attempts to TIG weld stainless steel below. I hope my photos are self explanatory, but if you do have questions....Please ask. I'll do my best to answer any questions. I also numbered the pictures in order....for some reason the file host does not organize them in order. I'm learning here, so please do not take offense if I can not offer a reasonable explanation.

  3. Good afternoon everyone! My name is Don and I am new to blacksmithing. The show Forged in Fire sparked the creative side of me and has inspired me to give blacksmithing a try as a hobby. I built a side-draft forge of stacked brick and cinder block. Air is supplied by my shop vac connected to a 1-in (black) pipe at the bottom of the fire bowl. The fire bowl is 7.5-in L (left-right) x 6.5-in W (front-back) x 6-in D. I added the second course of brick based on posts here discussing charcoal forges. I plan to buy some coal to give that a try as fuel, since it burns hotter. I have been working two old files. I can't seem to get the metal more than a medium-bright orange. The right-side of the fire bowl doesn't burn bright, so I am thinking to cut the brick and make it smaller. I purchases a 3-lb cross-pien that I've rounded and a 2-lb sledge that I've started to reface, based on what I've read here. My "anvil" is currently a 4-lb sledge. I'll be looking for something more appropriate and with more mass. I have been running the valve controlling the air flow at about half-open. I get a lot of blowing ash, if I open it too much more. The file that looks most like a knife was one of my dad's old files that I did on Father's Day. Dad's been gone three years now and the effort was a reconnection and lot more emotional than I expected. The making something from "nothing" was very satisfying and is very similar to the creative urge that got me into software development as a profession. There is great advice on this site and like reading about everyone's experice. Suggestions and advice welcome! Don 20170702_102101.mp4
  4. I'm a, 2 year experienced, blacksmith building my second forge and is an functioning recreation of an antique 19th century forge used in small towns all around Europe. The dimensions are 36" wide, 24" deep, and about 24"-36" tall. it will be made of fire brick and a metal fire pot. I've included a photo of my rough ideas but wish to known from more experienced blacksmiths if there is anything i should know or any tips?
  5. Being that i am somewhat new to blacksmithing and only 18 years old i do not have a wealth of knowledge on Building a forges, but i and dying to upgrade from my current small charcoal forge. I am wondering why i do not see more plans for Brick forges, as i have recently purchased a couple of tons of bricks to build myself a more permanent and higher quality forge. If anyone has plans for a simple brick forge i would love to see them. Keep in mind that i have never done any real masonry work, but i learn quite quickly. Im looking to build something similar to this,but with only one work station. Any help is appreciated Thanks, -Nick
  6. hey guys, i need some advice. i am wanting to build a brick forge and have a few ideas as to the construction but i was wondering if any of you could lend me some ideas too. me and my buisness partners are merging our blacksmithing company's into one big one and we do anything from blades to home decor we have a coal portable forge and a propane portable and now we are wanting a permanent brick one to work out of. we will be using coal. and will be hooking up a electric blower to it that will provide air probably from underneath. if any of you have any blueprints i would love to look them over. i am getting ready to pour a concrete pad to build it on. hope you all can help.
