  1. Hello all! My name is Eric, I live in Fort Smith Arkansas and have recently gotten into forging due to the inspiration of FIF. I've read posts from this great community in order to help me along my journey and I thought I would share my first dedicated propane forge build with you all. It started life as an air compressor laying in a scrap heap at a metal recycling center. By flexing my terrible welding skills it now has a new life. I'm very much in to upcycling and I can honestly say this is the coolest thing I've ever upcycled. I had to burn out a lot of oily water and god knows
  2. Started work on this 20lbs propane tank yesterday.
  3. Since you guys helped me decide to fabricate a fire pot and table vs. pay a bunch of money I thought I would post some photos my process in building a new fire pot, table, chimney, and tuyere/clinker breaker. One of my goals was to make this entire build as collapsible as I could to make it easier to move in the future. I decided on a table measuring 48" x 24" based on my space requirements. Next step: Designing the fire pot. I spent a long time micro-adjusting measurement to try and get a design I was happy with. The result is 10" x 8", not quite 4" deep, 2.75" diameter h
  4. Hi there. I was tempted to put this in WIP but decided it should live here . I am building my first forge and, after having considered cannibalising my barbecue and other things, finally decided to scratch build. Any comments are greatly appreciated but please forgive my welds as I have no real experience (before yesterday that is). I decided to make the forge 1m wide, 50cm across and about 95cm high using a frame of 4mm thick 40mm equal angle mild steel and a table of 4mm sheet. The table slots into the frame so that I can replace it if I need to. The fire bowl is 12cm (5") deep cast iro
  5. It is finally time to build myself a new forge! I have been planning to do this for about 9 years now and was never able to get around to it or have a place I could really work on building a new forge. But now I am all set up in a very small shed that is adequate to do this project as well as more blades once the forge is built. My current forge is an old furriers forge and is very good at oxidizing steel. There are two burners and only one of them has a way to regulate the flow of air. My main problem with this forge and the reason I am building a new one is that it is very hard to get this
