new guy


Recommended Posts

Hey yall,
My name is Zach Daugherty friends call me Ark. i live in Morgantown Ky and am 21 years old. I don't know what came over me but one day I woke up and just wanted to be a blacksmith. I did some research , bought some books and ended up building a 55 forge. 4 S-hooks and 2 dinner bells later I was hooked. now I can't drive down the road without scanning the ditches for scrap steel. I'll probably be flooding the forum with elementary questions since i'm an apprentice w/o a teacher. gimme a shout!

Zach, welcome to Iforgeiron and the wonderful world of blacksmithing!

I also 'scan the ditches for scrap steel'.......I think it's a sign of 'blacksmithing addiction'!

If you have any questions, just ask.....

There are lots of friendly folks here willing to help.

By the way.......where is Morgantown Ky?

Welcome aboard Zach, glad to have ya.

Nothing wrong with keeping an eye open for stray stock in the ditches I say. You can't make things without stock and there's no reason to . . . BUY :o it if you don't have to.

Ask away, some of us are just plain happy to yak. ;)
