I Forge Iron

Pump forge ID

Recommended Posts

I picked up this little pump forge from the guy I was helping with a demo last week. I was wondering if anyone here can help identify it and give me an idea of it's age. I couldn't find any obvious name on the unit.  It's got a decent sized crack that's been repaired, but I think it's worth the $50 I paid for it.

 

 

Thoughts on lining the pan with refractory to help keep this in decent shape for demos?

Small forges like that were pretty much made by every large hardware supply business at the time and so with out markings it will be very hard to lock down a maker unless it has some oddball tweak that might identify it in a catalog.  Keep an eye open for patents too!
