I Forge Iron

Anyone done this?

Recommended Posts

So I plan on building a forge with the 10 gauge steel duct in the photo and either a brake drum fire pot or a 70's vintage cast iron hibachi grill fire pot. I currently have a potbelly stove in the corner of my shop that I don't use as it is too small to heat my shop. Could I use the stack from my potbelly stove to chimney my forge? It is 6" round to double wall out.

Greetings 89,

6in stack not so much...  Most successful systems use at least 10in ...  I would suggest some research on this forum before investing time or money in a new system...  Just an ol boys 2c

Forge on and make beautiful things
