I Forge Iron

Learning experience

Recommended Posts

I was invited over to BirdogForge a while back to witness some hot work. Bruce Godlesky is the owner and he also had a young fellow there, Andy Takach, both expert forgers and knife makers. I was mainly interested in the forging of the steel cable. Andy's grandfather was also there to observe.
I had a great time and am inspired to build my own forge. I already have the plans. I have been a fabricator/welder for over 40 years but maybe an old dog can learn new tricks. Thanks to Bruce and Andy!

I see our nefarious plot has snared another addict. Bwooo ha ha ha ha!

As a fabricator you'll find that making your equipment is pretty straight forward and kind of refreshing as you can just eyeball a lot of it.

However, seeing as you build such sweet scale models I hope to see some working scale smithing equipment.
