I Forge Iron

New from north central Texas

Recommended Posts

Just west of the metromess. Made a few knifes from a saw blade and needed away to heat treat them. I built a hard firebrick forge and forced air burner.

Now I'm waiting on more supplies to show up to build a 20lb propane tank forge. I have a little extra KOL, as I bought a 55lb bag.

I've built a 2x72 grinder and a improvised anvil. I'm in the process of building my version of a 1/2" frosty. Tongs  will be my first BS project.

I've read enough to state that I've read "Read this First" LOL

Thanks for such a great place to learn all this stuff.

Welcome aboard... Sounds you are off and running. Happy to see you have read the thread, that about a third of my posts recommend reading it.:D It's a chore but someone has to do it so new folks get the best out of the forum's idiosyncrasies. Hope you stay safe & healthy during the current madness.

Thanks Randy, been reading for several weeks and have not learned the first 1 percent of what is available here. I try to find the info I think I need before my questions start flowing out in posts. I get better answers when I know what to ask about.

Here's some teasers. First is my 2z72.

My improvised anvil with 3/4" hardy hole and large drawing round, also have a 2" round. 

Here are my first knives and electrical pvc sheaths.
