I Forge Iron

You might be a redneck blacksmith

Recommended Posts

If the handle on your toilet breaks 3 hours before company comes and your local farm and ranch store doesn't have one. Soooo, you forge one out of a horseshoe and a piece of threaded rod. My first attempt at a horse head and it looks ok. Not great but ok. Great to have metal and a forge and wife MAKES you forge something.

If you miss your work, and you say, "well, dang it, there goes the other tooth".....you might be a redneck blacksmith.


If your first brake drum forge came from something you had in the backyard, before you started smithing......

....if SWAT teams of BATF agents have descended on your rural smithy because the overflights see the heat source from your propane forge as a still. (True story: guy in MO was making maple syrup in a shed and got raided.)  


....if you have disguised your moonshine still as the steam boiler for your line shaft drive in your shop. And they missed it. :rolleyes:


....if you have traded your moonshine for anvils and vises.
