I Forge Iron

My new homemade forge!!

Recommended Posts

Firepot is 21"x10" and is about 4" deep. I got the design idea from The Complete Bladesmith sword forge. I can locate the fire anywhere within the 21" lenght with a piece of plate steel. The flue is 22" dia. 3/16 steel tubing. It's the core that a local sheet metal manufacture receives their metal coiled on. The table has room on each side. I use the right side for tools and tongs. I use the left to keep a heap of coal close by. It gets to welding heat with ease. I'm super stoked with this setup!!

Looks great! I'm so happy when folks go out and track down a book to help them too!

Is the chainsaw for dealing with snide remarks?

Lol!!! No this was when I fired it up the first time. I used the chainsaw to trim rafter ends and such. I may keep it there if that's the thing people think when they see it....
