I Forge Iron

Forge for an orphan Rapid blower


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

Made a forge this week, it is for a hand-crank 'Rapid' blower that I was given 17 years ago; finally got the bits and pieces together!

See if you can recognise the forge pan.


The other one is for a mate who helped


and just to prove it blows enough air.



Just have to line forge and paint.  Also an extra foot under the blower, for stability, they are heavy.

Well spotted, a wok it is.  I fished them out of a skip full of food-hall renovation stuff.  Come to think of it all the forge , except blowers, are from skip-gleaning.

I agree Vaughn, the next fire will be in damp coal fines to make coke and bring height up.

thanks for looking,
