Each year on the last Saturday of January, the Mississippi State University's Crosby Arboretum partners with members of the Gulf Coast Blacksmith Association and the Mississippi Forge Council to create a family-friendly, hands-on educational event highlighting the history and techniques of all kinds of metalworking (blacksmiths, metalworkers, bladesmiths, etc.) on a forge. If you would like to attend and demonstrate your trade, please contact me as soon as possible. There is no cost to exhibit , and you are welcome to sell your related products.

Here's a new forge I'm currently building as a portable unit for doing demonstrations. I've still got some work to go. Ribbon burner is made from 3x3x3/16 tube and refractory, using crayons as part of the form. She's not quite getting up to the temperature I'd like and I think I might need to pick up a larger fan in order to get there.. looks to be hovering around 1900-2000F. I could also have a little debris in the plenum, because, like a dumb*ss, I didn't take the paper off the crayons like I normally do - you can see in one of the pictures that it's not burning quite right. Just lined with fiber because I can't afford ITC-100. Wondering if a watered down slick of Vesuvius 3000 (refractory cement) painted on the wool and dried for a few days would help get me to my welding heat. Any thoughts?
