Michaelarmer Posted July 8, 2016 Share Posted July 8, 2016 Hello everyone thank you for reading. Its been years since I first started aspiring to one day become a blacksmith, over these years I have been slowly (as funds and availability allowed) adding to my collection of tools and materials needed to get started. As of posting this is have. 300lb anvil Complete solid fuel forge 100kg of anthrecite beans Ball peen hammer Hot set Rasp Lots of files Tongs And a few more smaller tools that evade my memory. The thing that inspired me to get these tools was a book called "The Modern Blacksmith - Alexander Waygers" I had intended to work my way through the book and make every tool in it but I was soon met with a extensive list of equipment that needed to be acquired before starting. This led to my next task. Getting it all! It is now nearly a year since I started collecting, and I am still far from complete but I can't wait any longer. I'm dieing to hit some metal. So my question is "with the tools I have and a small collection of rebar and bits of scrap metal (also pretty unlimited supply of aluminium due to my job) is there anything I an make with little experience behind the hammer? Any recommendations as to tools that I should start looking into getting would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Michael Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
