I have a forge!
Can't put too many irons in the fire unless there is a fire, right? Here is my new little Champion coal forge. The bed is only two feet square, big enough for most of what I will do and is portable and not a space hog. It has a hand crank air blower although the guy I got it from is also going to give me a motor which I can connect to the blower via a belt and run the blower off electricity if I want. The refractory needs to be replaced and it will be almost ready to go!
Now I just need to figure out where in the yard to put it, things are a bit crowded.
