Forge Rebuild

This old hand cranker belonged to my Grandpa, he didn't use it much, I think he may have took it on trade, or it was one of his earlier ones.

I made a belt by skiving a serpentine from my truck, and glued it with contact cement, just to see if it works. Cranks pretty hard, but it spins.

Not sure what make this forge is, if it is a commercial made, or a home, built? It has a hood that I didn't include in the pictures. Parts of it are riveted, parts are assembled with square headed bolts. The belt hub on the fan shaft is made of wood.....
