I Forge Iron

Yeah... I’m thinkin’ I’m back.


Recommended Posts

So back in the day (even though today is THE DAY) I was a youngish artist metal craftsman before computers. Dial telephones art fairs and campus bulletin boards (real actual cork boards) seemed a good way to get the word out on your craft. Then came online bulletin boards through my old 286 personal computer and the lurker/craftsman Apacheforge came into being. Since those days I have learned a lot unlearned a great deal, and maybe got a little smarter. I have my workshop in the forests of Puget Sound. It’s smallish but contains a basic weld shop, smithy, foundry, wood shop, and machine shop. Here I create things that feed my interests in wooden boats, live steam, artillery, Musical instruments, and thing mechanical. Let’s have some fun!

Howdy; were you on rec.crafts.metalworking before the RFP for a blacksmithing sub group? A few of us Dinosaurs still around...

Yes i was. At that time i was working R&D for Airco in their optical coatings department which among other things developed flat screen technology. So if you are using a laptop, iPad or flat screen tv, you’re welcome. When i joined that team, i was transitioning out of a fine arts career into an industrial/ engineering career. Been a fun ride.

I was working for Bell Labs, so if you use anything with transistors or integrated circuits or run off UNIX; you're welcome!  (My Father did some of the early work on Cellular Radio that is now applied to Cell Phones too; I was a 2nd gen Labber.) I transitioned from being a Geologist to CIS.
