MAKING A BLACKSMITH SHOP WITH NO POWER TOOLS
I make an outdoor blacksmith shop - show the build from start to finish. I use recycle materials and hand tools, no power tools. Open the full video description for more information.
I was a fulltime blacksmith making mainly axes and I still have my indoor well equipped blacksmith shop (don"t sell any thing any more). A shop where you stand up and work. So I wanted to do something different with the new shop - a hole in the ground and all the gear around the hole and most of the time do you sit down and work. That is not a new way to do it - it was and still is a common way to do it in a lot of areals in the world.
The new outdoor shop and the old indoor shop is next to each other. 10 meters apart and 10-20 meters from my home, Sami gamme.
A few quick questions:
1. Where did you get the air blower?
In my case is it one made in Denmark for the danish military. Bought it local from a private seller here in Denmark. Similar is common for blacksmithing - if you want one try to google "Hand crank forge air blower" or similar.
2. What if it rains?
No problem. It"s under roof and on a high spot.
3. Why not make the grinding stone foot operated or something else more efficient?
Wanted to make a simple one. If I need to grind a lot do I use my big grinder in the indoor blacksmith shop - it"s only 10 meters from the outdoor blacksmith shop. Video about that grinder https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDeoCNRuKOk
