new coke forge project

Recommended Posts

as a project for y education i had to design and build a project, the only requirement was that it had to be a 3-point-linkage but since i don't need any thing that hangs behind a tractor, and needed to make a new solid fuel forge.
i ended up making a forge that was bolted onto a 3-point-linkage :)

its not all finished need to make a few more additions but here is a few photos
the firepot is a old cast-iron on

First, I smiled at your creativity with the requirements of the 3 pt hitch. I really like how solid you made it. I tend to build heavier myself. Great support from underneath, from what I can see from the welds. You might want to consider what could fall out of the corners. That should last for years and give you lots of enjoyment. Great job!

And I would actually widen the corner gaps so you can run long pieces through catty corner gaps to get them deep in the fire. Making a gap cover would be easy for someone with your skills!

Nicely done, it looks functional and not so heavy you'll actually need a tractor to move it.

thanks for your nice comments :)

the gaps in the corners i made on purpose so to be able to sweep out dust when needed and they are only 10mm wide the two gaps on the side that will be placed against the wall will be welded up

the firepot is not very deep and the sides are 35mm high so the top of them will be abut the hight where the sweetspot in the fire will be for most of the size work ill be doing in it

i still need some more features build on it but this was as far as i could get with the very limited time we hard for the project
one thing i really need is rubber feet on threaded bar so i can level it on my floor, and will lasercut and CNC-bend a box for ashes and clinkers to go under the ash-dump

any other ideas of what i should build in on it would be very appreciated :)

Old thread back from the dead... I had to comment though.

 

I am getting ready to build my forge and was totally gonna build a 3p7 hook up to pull it in and out with my old sear tractor.

 

This is awesome!!!

it would be easier to make up some forks for your 3pl and that way you can use them for other stuff to.  Great idea tho to get the project you wanted.
