My dilapidated 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.
