I Forge Iron

Made a forge! Fun stuff!


Recommended Posts

My son and I got interested in playing w/ some RR spikes we found recently. Stumbled on this forum last week, scrounged some junk and built a crude mini-forge. Works pretty well. Initially had way too much air going in, then backed of w/ the shop vac. Boy's working on a knife as we speak. Might post a pic if it turns out! Fun stuff!post-24566-0-21688700-1331423784_thumb.j

Just keep at it and dont get frustrated, you'll improve as you go and figure out what tools you need. I would recommend a good pair of tongs from the get go. Start looking around swap meets and flea markets for rail road track pieces for an anvil.

Have fun!
