My archaic blacksmith forge
I show my forge - the air blower, the cast iron fire pot, the table etc. and make a coal fire. Open the full video description for more information.
A few quick questions:
1. What kind of fire pot is that?
Old one made in cast iron and made for blacksmithing. It"s a common design. Cast iron is some of the best because it can handle a lot of heat without burning/being destroyed.
2. What kind of air blower is that?
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.
3. How did you make the table?
Just loose bricks. The weight and overlaps keep it very well together.
4. What are you burning?
Birch bark and wood as tinder. In this case coal as fuel - but use charcoal a lot as well.
Video gear: Nikon D7000, Nikon 50 1.8, Røde videomacro, iMovie.

Its a mettlesome man that wears a white shirt to dapper his forge. Your videos are valid works of art.

In actuality highlights when something is feeble and valid…….go it be and don't secure it wants fixing. That it’s doubtless you’ll also simply learn something that you by no approach noticed sooner than. Let nature be the natural leader no longer over inflated teams of brain stormers, that simply hear the rain.

Hello there ! I’d seize to query you what size is the chimney pipe ? It appears to be like to be like rather shrimp (below 250mm). Are you able to specify this ? The issue is , I am fascinated about transitioning my blacksmith store from outdoor into indoors and there may per chance be a brick chimney unique, however the dimensions is most efficient 200mm :/
