I Forge Iron

How do I smelt Iron?

Recommended Posts

From time to time that question is asked here at IFI and there is always a lot of discussion that follows. I was looking a various knife makers and forges and such today and found this: tatara . He has show his experience in making a smelting furnace and the whole process from start to finish in a well written dialog that then proceeds to finished blade. It also show another use for an old water heater.:cool:

The Blacksmith Guild of Central Maryland (BGCM) is having a smelt at Blacksmithing Days May 15th through 17th. One or more smiths from Williamsburg, VA museum are coming up to the Carroll Country Farm Museum to convert ore to wrought iron and then to a forged project that will be auctioned off. see: http://www.iforgeiron.com/forum/f81/welcome-11397/#post110187 for further information. :)
