Scalebar Posted May 28, 2021 Share Posted May 28, 2021 I've been forging for well over a year, only just made the jump to ferrous but I was using exactly the same kit for silver and bronze. I've always been conscious it makes noise and stuck to one hour stints. The set up is on the opposite side of the house from the character I'm about to introduce and I have a tiny anvil. Not being able to drive I'm kinda limited on venues. The neighbour has suddenly started objecting. After having a go at my wife a few weeks ago I agreed to keep it between 4&6pm, I've only fired up the forge five times since then - and limited it to half an hour sessions no more than twice a day (which is frustrating but at least the oversized burner gets the forge hot quickly), I'm keeping notes. Today he voiced his objections by banging on the gate with a hammer and threatening legal action - after ten mins. As far as I understand it - I have a legal right to carry out my hobby as long as I'm taking reasonable care to minimise disturbance - which I reckon I have been. Anyone got any experience? I'm tempted to take up the bagpipes Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
