I Forge Iron

good evening all


Recommended Posts

Have to say evening because that is what it is in west aust at the moment. You may have to bear with me a bit here as i am not a whiz with this infernal machine as yet If i cant get it hot and hit it I am mostly lost .

Started making blades about 40 years back by stock removal in the scrub in the back hills of New Guinea (long story)then when i got back home again I was introduced to a forge and anvil and have not looked back since.
Therefore I dont class myself as a blacksmith . More of a bladesmith

Now I am being forced to make other dinky stuff as well by all and sundry who seem to reckon that when you retire you have all the time in the world Darn i never worked this hard when I was earning a living .
Thats me in a nutshell .Thank you for the opportunity to join you in any way I may be of use

well i do thamk you all for your welcome I will post a few pics when i figure out how to work this darned machine I recently killed the scanner { They just cant swim ) But when i get it sorted i will chuck a few pics on line for you to have a crack at .
But being old it is now time for a nana nap. 1031 pm here in aus and I have been on the go since about 0400 this morning so the weariness is setting in fired along by a couple jars of direction juice.
Nite all
