  1. Hello ! New member from Norway here. Blacksmithing has been intriguing and I’ve always been fascinated by it, but for some reason I never felt I had enough equipment for it, so it always where put on hold. That changed a couple months ago! I was about to go catatonic from boredom as I was switching from channel to channel On the tv. Suddenly I found myself watching forged in fire . After binge watching this for a few days I told myself “f**k it, I’ll go forge stuff with or without any anvil and proper forge!” I got myself a piece of old railroad track,put it on an
  2. Hello everyone, I'm John and new to this forum. I'm just getting started in forging iron. Looks like a very informative fourm. Im Iooking forward to learning and creating
  3. First of all, I will be honest and say that I copied this from my profile after writing it in the "about me" section. I have visited this site quite often and finally decided to become a part of it. May I start by thanking anyone who takes the time to read information about myself. So as to hopefully avoid the inclusion of being associated with many of the people of my generation, please allow me to define some of my backstory. Should you not care about that, you could simply skip to the paragraph following. I have always been ambitious; sated more by knowledge and finding resolute pur

  5. Hi Guys, I am pleased to have found a useful forum, i am an apprentice trained blacksmith since leaving school and been under the heavy hammers, in and out of the trade all my life (now 51) and have just been messing with building a forge, i have so far come up with this one which i have found to be totally ok for my needs, it runs off a 240volt air bed compressor. Regards Andy Waring DEWSBURY West Yorkshire
  6. Greetings all! I am new to this site and have read a lot of the posts, along with a lot of research outside this site. I do have a few questions on my build that I cant seem to find answers too. I have been told that 240-350 cubic inch per one burner. Which number is closer? I don't want to build a "cheap" forge, but I sure don't want to pay an arm and a leg for some thing I might only take up as a hobby. I do have a blower to use on build, but I have recently read that it might be too weak. CFM isn't listed. I want to say its 1550 rpm. Most likely its out of a old furnace. It also says "#1 T
  7. ... and Hello from Northern Virginia. :) I've always been fascinated by blacksmithing, but never had the chance/tools to try it. On a whim, I broke out my MAPP plumbing torch, stuck a small sledgehammer head into a stump, and grabbed my grandad's big old Ball Pein hammer. It's nothing special, but for my first whack (haha) at hammer and fire, I was both suprised and pleased. :) Needless today, I now have the bug and need tools! Any active Blacksmithing Groups in Northern VA? Anyone near Virginia have advice on obtaining an actual anvil? Seems hard to find... Thanks! Jeremy
