  1. I am looking for metallurgical coke in the New England area. Some googling hasn't turned up much, and I am also not aware of any large smelting or steel refining in this area that I could try to contact. Short of driving to PA or OH, has anyone ever run across coke in this corner of the country? I am looking for coke to try as an alternative to soft coal, which is also somewhat difficult to get. My rationale is that coke will produce less startup smoke and fume, and so would make this hobby easier on those within nose range of the forge, particularly on startup. Yes, I do start the forge with the leftover coke from last session, and yes, it still smokes profusely for ten minutes or so.
  2. Hi everyone,happy to join the forum. I'm a beginner living in southern Maine on the NH border, and have wanted to pursue blacksmithing for a long time, and have just recently had all the stars align for me - I found the New England Blacksmith's group forge in Brentwood, I inherited my grandfather's anvil, and a neighbor hooked me up with an old post vise. Between all that and a pile of bricks and a sack of coal, I'm more or less in business! I plan on living off scrap material for awhile to practice and learn hammer control, and then hopefully start making things that are useful, though I couldn't say what yet, exactly.
  3. Couldn't get the link to work that lists all the groups nation wide, so I figured I'd post here and try to get some info. Anyone know of any groups in Maine??
  4. Hello all. My 7 year old son has been hammering soft steel on an anvil I inherited from my grandfather. We realized that he was ready to move up, so I build a brake drum forge. this journey has been fun and we are excited to practice and learn more. We are trying to make all of our own tools, so this will take some time and I'm certain it will be more rewarding.
