I Forge Iron

Wood stove forge


Recommended Posts

The picture is kind of unclear but from what I can see it loos like an old wood stove for cooking, what we call in the US a "range."  If that is the case, probably not.  You would do better with a JABOD ("just a box of dirt").  You'd put way too much effort into trying to convert the stove to something usable for heating metal to forging temperature.

That definitely makes a difference. In the mobile format your location doesn't show up under your avatar like when using the PC version so I wasn't sure where you were located. If you can fabricate a box out of any of the pieces you can make a forge. George mentioned a jabod. They're the easiest and cheapest forges to build. A box, a pipe, some dirt, and something to push air through the pipe and you have a forge. Here's another version of a jabod. I think this is the type of jabod I prefer after building both. https://www.iforgeiron.com/topic/55467-mark-iii-jabod-forge/
