I Forge Iron

Does anyone use a side blast forge?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone uses a side blast forge like mine, I built this one a few weeks ago and it is working well for me. I live in the UK and they are quite common here but I don't see many pictures or examples of them anyware else.

Mine is water cooled and has a water jacket in the tue iron

Do they have water cooled tue irons (the air pipe bit) or just a big casting to radiate the heat?

I have worked with bottom blast fire pot forges and find that side blast forges in my opinion are much easier to control and you can build the fire to whatever size you want.
