I Forge Iron

First fire!

Recommended Posts

Well, after I got all my chores done today, I figured I would at least see if I remembered how to get the fire lit.
I actually got it on the first try. Was up and running in about 5 minutes.
So I figured I would at least get something hot.
Remember, I have not stood at this thing since I was about 14 years old. (35 years ago!)
I grabed a piece of 3/8 rebar from the scrap rack and stuck it in the fire.
Got all KNOTTED UP so to speak!
I turned off the fan, turned to walk away and heard a loud POP!
Could not believe it. She musta had a small crack already and the first re-light was too much for it. Now I am bummbed. Gotta try and find a way to mend it.
Any ideas?
