I Forge Iron

forge hoods

Recommended Posts

My forge I got just prior to building my new shop had a regular overhead hood with a ten inch chimney attached that did pull the smoke away but not very effectively. I made a modified version of the side draft that works extremely well now. I usually throw a bit of crumpled newspaper in the draft box to warm the chimney a bit when the weather is cool in early spring/late fall to get it drawing till the fire is going well but otherwise never have to worry about smoke. Overall length of the ten inch stove pipe is about twelve feet straight up so I get really good draw.
