I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

I built this hammer I think in 2010, everyone sed it wouldn't work or last, but I have been using it almost every day, it would be better with a solid anvil but works ok, there is no 3 phase power where my shop is and I could not find a single phase motor with enough HP and they were super expensive, in damp weather I have to put chalk dust on the belt to help it slip and in summer I have to put water on it to shrink it, I think when I replace the alloy guides I will make bronze ones.

Nice job; i was in Auckland in September and asked around regarding smiths in the area....too bad i was unable to check out your shop. If ever in American Samoa, stop by.

You should have sent me a PM I could have showed you a few shops
