I Forge Iron

new to metal smithing

There are sources to buy cast iron firepots for coal forges; but in general new stuff is quite expensive and improvised stuff can work extremely well. Knowing if you want to forge anchors or ear rings would help.

Buying just a new firepot for my large forge would run over US$250 last time I checked; but my home built forge ran me $3 and has been running for several decades right now.

There is one for sale right now in the Tailgating section. I would buy it in a heart beat, if it were closer to me to pick it up and I didn't already have 3 with another under construction. Don't know if the seller is willing to ship but the freight would be rather expensive.
