I Forge Iron

New Air Supply

Last time I was home I was trying to forge weld, I tried all day on Saturday, then Sunday I was back at it. never could get the heat right. finally I cranked the old blower hard and noticed the metal disappear into the coals. I finally got a forge weld. after many attempts.. I got to thanking about my situation and remembered that I had used a 1 1/2 pipe for air supply..
Well I have been on the road for the last two weeks and got home yesterday and decided I was going to fix my problem so I called a few friends to see if they had some 3" metal pipe laying around, One friend told me he had a old rear end that would work. so I got it and worked on it part of yesterday and finished today.. I still have to bolt it to the drum, and mount it.. I think my air problem will be fixed.. here's a few picture's.. I ain't much of a welder as you will notice in the pictures.. but I guarantee it won't come apart.. lol

Boy it was hot out there.
