  1. Hello; Practical problem here; I need a 25 cm (10 inch) diameter hole in the ground, more than a meter deep. Now I don't have one, and I can't buy one (lockdown & self-isolating). But I have a LOT of iron and steel and a lot of tooling to manipulate them. I know of three types; First is the typical "auger" style thing; resembling a helical drill, often made by round things welded to a central round thing. Then there is the 2 bar type, which twists at the tip. Then there's the pipe style thing with dirt-scooping points below (this one is often quoted for rocky soil). Now I don't have rocky soil; but I do have LOTS of roots, as I basically live in a forest. I also have 25 cm diameter diving bottles which I can cut up; which would make the last option probably the quickest. What do you recommend ? anyone know any "hack" to make the helical flights for a soil drill ? greets, bart
  2. So to start off hello everyone, I've been trying to start, but i'm having some worries about how i can build my forge, at the moment i was going to use the box forge that's pinned but i haven't had time to build it, so my father decided to do it but it seems like he went a bit overboard this thing is absurdly large something like 3ft x 3ft and a foot deep and he used what i think is treated wood (I know treated wood had arsenic in it and couldn't be burned im not sure if its still like this today, but is it safe to heat it? aka being the box? ) now in the last few days someone heard i was trying to start blacksmithing and gave me a whole bunch of firebrick he had from a chimney or something, so i'm wondering is the box safe to use, or should i just do something with the firebrick? or line the box with it? sadly i don't have access to many tools or cash or i would have probably just rebuilt it or made something else but im hoping someone can let me know what i should do or at least give me an idea of a direction to head
