I Forge Iron

first forge


Recommended Posts

Made my first forge today. I cut a groove in two soft fire bricks and stacked hard fire bricks around it. I cut a fire hole in the side that is deeper and higher than the working chamber. I cut a hole in a third fire brick to hold my oxy acettlene torch at the fire hole. I used a metal heating tip and cranked it up. After a couple of minutes it glowed red inside. I havent tried to work with it yet. Comments or concerns are welcome, thanks!

Seems like it would work for some stuff, good a place to start as any, just work your way up from there, may not be the most efficient forge but wont hurt to try, just be safe.

Also, see my signature below, it applies, haha thanks Phil, its already useful.
