I Forge Iron

I'm new here and just wanted to say hello


Recommended Posts

My name is Ron and I live in McMinnville Oregon. I am new to the forum and new to the art of metal forming.

I have done a few small projects like a special gate for a friend and done a bit of copper pipe work for arbors, tellis's, and artform around a porch.

I bought a small - cheap anvil (you get what you pay for) with the intent of doing some basic metal "pounding". I'm sure I will want to upgrade this because it's cast iron.

I have a wire feed welder (no gas) so it splatters like crazy when I weld. A grinder is my best frined. :-)

I plan to be quite on this forum and soak in the details you provide. At some point I will get brave and post some pictures of what I have made and look for some feedback for improvement.

Thanks for the forum and I hope to spend some time here frequently.

Hi guys, my names Megs and I do enjoy my forging. Although I haven't been able to get into it for a while because I've been busy building a shed. In the past I've banged out a few knives and some arty stuff, so i can't wait to cranking up the forge once again.
