  13. @ Brian Lawson Thank You,yeah my girl loves it,yeah the snow sucks and its to cold to forge out side right now.
  14. @Karter Schuster, Thank You,The forge is made out of a water tank and I have two pipes running down through it with a bunch of hole's drilled in them,in the back of the forge thats where I have the forced air coming in where I can open an close it with a vent.The in side of the forge ia lined with furance cement,it works perty good but getting the clincker out is some time a pain in the but. I'm working on a sword forge which that will be made out of a steel hot water tank,that tank is aboue 4ft long when you would lay it down.

  17. @ Ondřej Borský I would have done to the handle,but I had to let it go because I share my shop with my dad and everytime I would work on it,he wanted to no what I was doing. The heart I made for my girl like I said,I wanted to make more to sell but I have to check the patton out on it first,because there is one on that shape,giving is ok,but selling,I'm not sure about.
  18. Sorry for the size of the pic's,I took them with my iphone and thought they would be ok
  19. Hi All, It has been a bit since I posted anything on here since I moved to CO last year,I could not forge there at all(no space),but we have moved back home to PA. I built a new forge and started forging and have some new/old things to go with it. A anvil,blacksmith vice and a handblower. I forged a knife out of a railroad spike for my dad for Christmas,he was happy with it,this was my 2nd atemp on making a knife. I also made a openheart wall hanging for my girlfriend,she loves it. Im open for all coments :)/>
  20. Very nice job,it looks awsome,how long did it take to do the hole thing from start to finsih?
  21. @Eric,this hobby is costly enough,if you can get anything for this hobby for free,go for it,why not,if its leagle there is no harm it,you did things out of respect,good luck with it and have fun with it,I think it realy cool that you did not let it go to wast...
