I Forge Iron

Quick Forge

Recommended Posts

I have a small Diamondback gas forge (knife maker) which I love but I realized not every project will fit in the small opening.  I was working on a prototype digging tool for a friend who likes to metal detect.  I got the piece rough shaped and it would no longer fit inside my forge because of it's shape.  So  to the drawing board I went.  Taking material inspiration from Mr. Stevens latest clay forge I set out to make a washtub type forge.  I balked when my local supply store wanted $32 for a washtub.  I decided to follow Mr. Stevens and use wood for some of the construction mainly because I have a good friend who owns a sawmill and I also have Georgia Red Clay.  I tested it out this weekend and it will surely heat steel.  Thanks to Mr. Stevens for sharing his ideas.
