  1. I love those designs. Sadly I don't have the money to purchase one!
  2. Knife looks good. Im going to start with stock removal before I move onto actual forging.
  3. Do you think you could send me a link of the bricks you recommend?
  4. Thank you for letting me know about that! I also loved the video. Thanks for sharing
  5. Can they cool down fast though? I need to move my forge around my garage so I’m wondering if it could cool down in an hour or something like that?
  6. Yea. I found a nice hammer on amazon. $18. Hopefully I can find nice things for low prices. I also found a somewhat good vise for starting out. It’s at Lowe’s for $50 Could anyone send me a link to soft Bricks that I could use in a propane forge?
  7. I’ve actually decided against it. I currently have no space in my garage. My dad uses a bay for tools and stuff and the other 3 are for cars. I decided to use the bag my dads car is parked in when he is at work. I would take out and put everything away. Is it possible to have the bricks cool down faster or are there other bricks that I could use that don’t retain heat well but my forge would still work?
  8. So I was doing some looking around for vises and drill presses when I came across a drill press vise. Thoughts?
  9. Haha thanks. If I impaled myself my parents would kill me. Oh wait... ☹️
  10. Couldn't of said it better myself!
  11. From what I can tell, the propane forge can stand up without something holding it up? If so, could i use a regular brick to hold it up?
  12. Im assuming that the New Jersey Steel Baron. I did some research and it looks like they got some good steel. Im going to buy from them in the future. Thanks
  13. Which steel should I start out with first and where would I purchase them? I don’t want to buy some cheap stuff from wherever. I also don’t want to spend a fortune on steel. Any recommendations are welcome!
  14. Im planning on making the beginners propane forge that Jeremy Blohm posted early in this column. Does it matter which bricks I use? I can easily go to a dump and buy bricks for dirt cheap. I also found some other bricks that are specialised for forges. Does it really matter? I could spend $2 or $40. Just wanted to know because money is money and every bit I can save I can put into this later on! Edit: Also does anyone have the dimensions for angle iron that I should use for the propane forge? I read it over and over and still can't find them! ;P Speaking of my forge, its propane so I'm wondering how long propane will last. Edit #2: For my hammer handle does it matter between hickory wood and fiber glass?
