I Forge Iron

Newbie saying Hi to all


Recommended Posts

Just joined this morning and wanted to greet all.  Just starting the madness and going to set up shop if the snow stops falling.

Any help for me finding what I need would be appreciated. Going to an auction for a anvil and coal forge this weekend.  I plan

on using the shop for all farm needs and woodworking ideas too...too many ideas in my head.

Welcome to the group.  If you see a post vise at the auction at a reasonable price you probably want to pick it up.  Review the information here and at anvilfire regarding old anvils if you haven't already done so.  You can make a coal forge yourself and there's plenty of information here & online on how to do so.

Welcome aboard, glad to have you. PA is pretty good for finding blacksmithing tools and equipment and good coal isn't far off. If you haven't already, pull up a comfy chair, bring a lunch and something to drink and start reading here. most everything you need has been covered from testing and evaluating anvils to making your own . . . everything.


We love pics, from mystery tools ad ones to help evaluate to projects, shop, kids, yard, pets, dinner. Oh, just about any darned thing. <wink>
