I Forge Iron

New guy


Recommended Posts

Pretty new to the whole blacksmithing thing. Messed around with it at school, made a few knives and machetes. You can tell the difference between the ones i took 2 hours to make and the 10 minute knives :P. One thing i learnt is you cant forge hot aluminium. It just crumbles under the weight of the hammer. :)

Reasonably good at welding though, probably the best(or second best) in 1800 kids at school. Ever had your nipple burnt by a welding spark?(it hurts......)

If anyone wants to point me in the right direction for learning some blacksmithing it would be appreciated.

I live in Perth, Western Australia if anyone wants to teach me in person :P
