I Forge Iron

Hello From PA


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, im new to the Forum, and new to blacksmithing in the Philadelphia, Pa area . Had the bug for awhile to get into. Picked up a railroad track anvil for the time being, and am waiting for the furnace cement to dry in the forge ( been super humid here so its taking a bit). I am looking for some advice on good books to check out on basic blacksmith skills, and on metallurgy. and seeing if theres anyone in the area on here, Philadelphia, suburbs. Planing on firing the forge up this weekend, and start manipulating some steel, and if im lucky ill have a few tools to use.

Welcome aboard Nick, glad to have you. If you hang a light bulb in the forge the liner will dry much faster. It doesn't need to really be hot, just warmer than ambient and it'll evaporate water.


Frosty The Lucky.
