I Forge Iron

Hello from Eastern North Carolina

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


 My name is Lee and I am new to Blacksmithing. I am currently building a forge in my shop behind my house. A current member, marksnagel sent me to the forum and he lives about 20 minutes from me.


Thanks for letting me join,

Yes it is. I met him at a book store a few weeks ago selling some of his things and introduced myself. His exact words after I told him I was starting to get into smithing was " I am lighting up the forge at my house tomorrow if you want to come over." The next morning I was over his house heating and pounding steal. What an amazing way to show the love of the trade. That single experience has sling shot me into getting started.

Welcome aboard Lee, glad to have you. If you'll put your general location in the header we'll stop bugging you. While being a neighbor of Mark's is handy dandy it's not quite where you are. Then again, it's not a rule it just makes getting together with folk easier though I suppose Mark can or has filled you  in on that.


You a lucky dog!


Frosty The Lucky.
