I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Okay so please some help me.....I feel weird and creepy but it's worth it.  If anyone is willing to teach my younger brother he's 37 what you know or just let him have someone to talk to I would appreciate it SO MUCH!!!  I talk too much so....I will keep it short and sweet.  If you have any questions I don't mind answering any questions.  I just feel like the older nosy sister who has posted some ad on xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx for her brother.  So please don't make me regret this....

Ty!  I'm totally lost!!   I just posted to the first thing I thought would help.   I'm out of my league with this subject.  He picked up teaching himself from YouTube and making use of old equipment he had from our great grandpa!  It has been an outlet since we lost our Daddy,  August will be 4 years ago.  He really needs someone that can help him learn how to make equipment fairly inexpensively because he needs a new forge and the options are overwhelming and numerous!  

I appreciate the help!!!  Thank y'all for not killing me considering I have no knowledge beyond what I have read!  And I'm no help because I lack common sense meaning. ... I could write the tech manual to build a car but couldn't drive one!!

Refer him here, unlike YouTube IFI under goes constant peer revue. Many of our members post to you tube so we can refer him to good vidioes as well. 

Pick up a hammer, a little sibling rivalry is good, wee have a few lady smiths, and some consistently show up their husbands. Seeing a sister show up her brother would make my heat sing

You're getting close to home Charles (hope my wife doesn't see this):) Like others have said the best way to learn is with hands on help, second is youtube videos by competent blacksmiths. There is a section here with recommended videos. JLPservices posts here and she makes very good instructional videos.


You can get a family membership in the FABA, would love to hear you and your brother have joined.


My wife & I belong to the BOA (Blacksmiths Organization of Arkansas) and make all the monthly meetings we can. We always have a great time whether we forge or just visit and shoot the bull.

Welcome aboard.
