I Forge Iron

First Forge Weld

Recommended Posts

Some bloke rang me one time out of the blue for a few tips on welding. I talked about all the usual things eg clean fire, flux, being organised to get the job done quick etc etc. "Yes yes," he replied, "I've done all that."
"How many goes have you given it?" I asked
"Give me a ring again if you haven't managed it in four ...hundred attempts" was my terse response just before hanging up.
The moral is that forge welding is something you have to practise and practise and practise. But boy when it works it's pretty satisfying eh? to unite two pieces of metal into one with just your hands and a bit of fire.
