I Forge Iron

Greetings from South Africa

Recommended Posts

Hi All.

First off thank you for this amazing website and all the knowledge it holds.

I'm from South Africa and have wanted to take up blacksmithing for a few years now (more like 10) and finally have the finances and land to do just that.

I have managed to purchase (what I believe to be a pretty decent) anvil and in excellent condition, it looks as if it was purchased and used as a door stop when it got home, it's a 2CWT JB from England I picked it up for R5000 ($486 US) Not as big as some I have read about but I think a good starting point at a good price and a anvil that will let me do more then just the basics.

I still have to setup my forge and work area but that will be done shortly as I am still building the house (very little left to do, about a weekends work) so pics of the forge and workshop to follow later.

Anyway just a quick intro and to say "Hi"

A hearty Welcome to you! Brooks anvil are nice(my favorite anyhow) R5000 possibly a bit rich for 120kg but I suppose that sometimes beggars can't be choosers.

Please update your location on your profile. I'm in the airport in Chicago right no & will be back  in Sa on Monday night. I have lots of surplus kit that I might be able to help you out with.
