I Forge Iron

Hello from Florida


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new here. I've just started blacksmithing and I'm looking to learn more, there wouldn't happen to be anyone local (I'm in Orlando) that i could pick up a few tips from would there? And would anybody have any idea where i might be able to get coal?

hi emexer3,
welcome to the forum. GOOD to have another FL smith on here. :D
I'm about an hour north of you in Ocala. The closest meeting place that I know of for you would be Barberville, at the Pioneer Arts Center. The FL Artist Blacksmith Assoc. has a group that holds monthly meetings there(first Sat. of every month). Your timing couldn't be better. There is a meeting there this SAT.

Here's a link to the FABA site. Florida Artist Blacksmith Association
It would be a great group for you to join, to meet others with "metal mashing" disease. AND I think that you can get COAL there also. I won't be making it to this meeting but I look forward to meeting you sometime in the future.
