I Forge Iron

Middle age newbie from Northern Alberta


Recommended Posts

Glad for the add. Looking forward to trying out a new hobby to keep me away from the TV. Hot rodding is getting expensive due to the exchange and it's pretty hot for hunting.

Picked up an old 185lb AJAX anvil from a couple provinces over and a post vice that I'm hoping to rebuild. It's just a little rusty, but looks intact.

Watching videos and reading as much as possible. Just going to build a forge and give it a shot.

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

We'd love to take a look at pics of your finds. We LOVE pics and some of the guys are really experienced getting leg vises working properly.

Be careful trying to base your learning curve on videos online, anybody with a camera and access can post "expert" videos. Take a look through the Iforge sections on the opening page, not only are there many hours, heck DAYS worth of reading from first session beginner to some really advanced stuff and videos by people who really ARE experts.

Frosty The Lucky.
