Woodyard Posted August 15, 2017 Share Posted August 15, 2017 Hello to all. I just got the bug bad enough in the last few weeks to get on with it. I have been interested for a few years in blacksmithing, but had a lot of other interests to contend with. I finally decided if I am going to do it, I had better get on with it,before I get to the point that I am not able. I have almost finished my semi truck brake drum forge and have already picked up an anvil ,a post vice, an old buffalo forge. I sent word to my brother who is a retired machinist that I needed an anvil and figured he knew where I could find one. Sure enough , he had two anvils, the post vice, a Buffalo Forge minus the fire pan and a few other tools. I am fortunate to have a pretty good scrap iron pile or three from my farming days. I have a pretty good bit of experience in wood working and some in metal work. I helped my brother in his shop part time for a few years, mainly turning pivot shafts for International bull dozers. I have been welding , repairing and tearing up for close to 47 years, learned to weld at about fifteen years old. You probably will not hear much from me as I will mainly be reading and gleaning info. I will probably have a question once in a while. Thank you for the forum and the opportunity to learn from you.
