ok to smiths and those just dabbling in the art is do you think there would be any intrest in a decnet set plans for a rolling forge cart with bellows (or the bellows themselvs) of so what groops

or would some one makeing the entire forge cart or stand alone bellows be better

I saw a smithy at a fair of some sort that had his bellows set up so that he could let the children pump them for him...free labor...but he was very good at his demonstrating, and showed them how the bellows affected the fire and so forth. He also had a neat little gadget that he placed a small heated piece of square stock and the children could turn a handle that made a twist in the stock. He'd then hammer out a hook of some sort and cool it then give it to the child that helped him. Pretty neat set up.
