I Forge Iron

New guy saying hi!


Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say hi to everyone and to thank all of the contributors for their hard work and knowledge. I'm building my first forge and hope to start my first piece(s) this weekend.

Again, thanks to all those who have come before and have dropped so much knowledge!

Happy New Year Zee,

Welcome to our world. Normal is a setting on the clothes dryer!!

Start with little steps, you don't need to be a BIG DOG on the porch, starting out. Heat source can be anything, Camp Fire, Propane weed burner in a pile of bricks, who cares!!! Heat is heat. Anvil can be the same as the rock you dug out of the garden. K.I.S.S. Forget about what kind of Hammer, any Hammer works. Vice-Grips work for Tongs. Smoke from Coal/Coke bothers some peoples lungs. Carbon Monoxide is the silent Killer, keep lots of ventilation!!! Protect your Ears & Eyes, you can't get replacements!! Keep a 2x4 handy to wipe the SMILE off your face!!!!

Stay safe, Play safe, Think safe!!
