Hello, I am brand new to smithing and I am excited to start the craft. I have a makeshift forge and i am in the process of building a anvil stand. (Pics of the forge below) I am looking for any tips/tricks that you guys/girls would be wiling to provide. I will post update pictures as I progress.
10 year old son is interested in blacksmithing. Right now I have him pounding copper so he can get the feel without 1800 F Iron. Besides the obvious CO and hot iron are there any other things I should be worried about. We plan on building a small "coffee can" propane forge together to start off. thanks in advance for any advice
