Glenn Posted January 29, 2017 Share Posted January 29, 2017 I realize some what I am calling brake drums are actually rotors or brake drum rotor combinations. For the sake of the discussion let us call them drums. Here are 5 brake drums that can be used as a forge. Which would you suggest for a bottom blast forge and which would you suggest for a side blast forge. Inside diameter and depth dimensions are on each drum. Brake Drum #1 is 4-1/2 inches ID by 1-1/4 inches deep Brake Drum #2 is 5 inches ID by 1-1/2 inches deep Brake drum #3 is 8-1/4 inches ID by 3-1/4 inches deep (sloped sides) Brake Drum #4 is 8 inches ID by 5 inches deep. Brake drum #5 is 9-1/2 inches ID by 4-1/2 inches deep (and a heavy beast) I am sure there are other choices of drums out there but this was available in the resource center (read scrap pile). Which would you suggest for a bottom blast forge and why. Which would you suggest for a side blast forge and why? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
