James Higson Posted July 4, 2013 Share Posted July 4, 2013 Hello Everyone, I'm James and new here, I have never forged anything before and I am really keen to build my own coal open-air forge. I have been trawling the internet for a while now and have read 'The Complete Blacksmith - Forging Your Way to Perfection' by Jim Hrisoulas before bed a few times (though I am very aware I know absolutely nothing). I was wondering if anyone could possibly give me a few tips as to the thickness of the steel I should use for the pit of my forge to survive the heat? Also the image below is the plan I aim to follow, is there anyone perchance who has one of these/made one who could give me a few tips please? Sorry to write a manuscript for my first post! Thank you very much, James Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
