I Forge Iron

hello, love this site


Recommended Posts

I should introduce myself , I am a diesel mechanic by trade, a leather/ silversmith/ gun engraver hobbiest/ dreamer/ bonehead.
35 years ago I wanted to try blacksmithing and read every book I could find and tracked down an old peter wright anvil in s.s.f., calif. and carried it around in the back of my pickup for a year or two, never landing in a place to start a forge.
A month ago I found a trenton anvil and forge here in clearlake ,calif. and ruined my first railroad spike, that is I hit it too hard too late, but I am as happy as I can be none the less!
I have forgotten all I learned 35 years ago and read your site often and enjoy it greatly, thanks to all

here are some pics of the forge, anvil and spike
