I Forge Iron

newbie - Forge and Blower question


Recommended Posts

Just starting out and I am looking to get a forge and blower.  


I have a 120# anvil already.  


Someone locally is selling a table and a Lancaster 400 blower.


They are asking $400


Any thoughts on the equipment and price?

Welcome aboard Scott, glad to have you. If you put your general location in the header you'll be surprised how many of the IFI gang live within visiting distance.


Around here that would be a good deal. Can you get coal in our location? Stupid high shipping is the main reason very few if anyone uses coal here.

It appears to be missing the firepot/ashdump between the blower and table, so you only have 2/3 of the set-up. It is a nice table. You would have to fabricate something, or get REALLY lucky to find one that fits.


Price seems a tad high for parts, unless he includes both blowers.

Thanks. I'm in Missouri.

Coal is possible to get in the area.

I'm stopping by tomorrow to take a look.


Missouri! Now put something a little more specific in your header, it's not like we're going to remember this one post you know. Yeah, it's a little expensive in your area and seeing as it's not complete point it out and counter offer at a good discount.
