I Forge Iron

coal shovel

Recommended Posts

Thanks, The oldest boy 12 helps keep the coal hot and I explained as I hammered. I showed him how to stretch using the cross pean, how to upset and pack the flat into a bar and then the how to curel the handle and the knob for a lack of a better word. The younger two 8 and 4 helped keep coal in the forge and learned the differant parts of the tools and anvil. Next week we are setting up the other two anvils so that they can start practicing on light (cold metal). My oldest son has made round to square and square to round and a screw driver. I promised him that next he could make a "blacksmith knife" we call them patch knife/ flint strikers.
