I Forge Iron

Nicaragua anvil

Recommended Posts

I was on a mission trip thru my church last week in Nicaragua and happen to find this in the camp workshop, or bodega as its called there. The man who started the camp thought is came out of Russia in the 70s or 80s

I didn't happen to have a 1" ball bearing in my pocket but a small hammer bounced off of it real good.

I may get to help them setup a forge next time I am down there.

This pic is not anvil related but it sure was fun! We got a chance to hunt dove on the last day of the trip. It was the first time I ever stopped shooting doves because I was tired of shooting doves!

My trigger finger is OK, the loading thumb and shoulder/bicep are still swollen!! 11 boxes of shells in about 3 hours! :lol:


The man in charge of maintenance and construction of the camp didn't know I was a armature blacksmith until the evening of the last day I was there.  form the look on his face I'm fairly sure ill be helping them with a forge next time I go down. :)
