Firebrick firepot for my rivet forge

Recommended Posts

So, I've been learning how to use my forge, with some trial and error and disappointing heats. I'm using lump charcoal because I am in town and plan on making my own. From what I've read here I needed a deeper fire, but I didn't want to burn a whole bag of charcoal at a time.

So, I got some firebrick and made a firepot with an angle-iron frame:

I've had a chance to use it yesterday and today and feel like it is working out well. I think a big part if it is just learning how to run the fire. Today I made a wall hook, hot chisel and round punch.
