I Forge Iron

Firepit and fire set

Recommended Posts

My son has just installed a great fire 'pit'. It is a huge stainless steel pump housing, which required a crane to lift it. . A blower stuck down the outlet flange creates a vortex of flame that is spectacular.

Anyway, I believe that a fire pit that good deserved a matching fire set, so I found another pump housing in the scrap and used it for the base of a four piece fire set … poker. rake, toast fork, shovel. He doesn't like fancy stuff much, so it's just industrial looking twisted rebar.

Very cool! Any pictures of the flame vortex?

No, we were having too much fun. I do have a pic of the first burn but it's on my phone. I'll see if I can get it onto here.

The first fire in the fire pit. Angling the blower a bit swirls the embers nicely. Little grandson keeping a safe distance!

And this thing would work well as a forge!
