Cranking it up this morning! The 2 keys to a forge hood that draws well are: . 1. A large diameter pipe (mine is 12"), at least 10 feet tall, and . 2. An inlet opening slightly smaller in volume to the pipe. My "church door" shaped opening is 8" wide by 10" tall. . There are many side-draft forge designs in both brick and sheet metal out there- this one is based on Lester Beckman's "Super Sucker Side Draft Forge Hood" for those that would like to look it up. I'm going to be rebuilding the hood soon (it's almost rusted out after 2 years of use) and when I do, I'm going to move it back from the firepot a few inches as it is much closer than necessary. . . #blacksmithing #blacksmith #anvil #forged #forging #handmade #handforged #axeandanvil #axeandanvilvideo #coalforge #sidedraftforge #supersuckerforgehood

A drive-Hook prototype I’m working on for a home project! The nail forged into the backside is to easily allow the hook to be installed in wood surfaces. The next few I make will be similar in size but I may add a scroll to the hook and adjust the height of the twist!

I fabricated my own coal forge when I started out, and although I won't be building another quite like it, it has served me well. Measuring 30"x36", the pan is made of 1/4" thick steel plate, with legs and sides made from 3/16" thick 3"x3" angle iron. I used 3" diameter pipe to make an air inlet and ash dump, and fabricated a firepot out of 1/2" thick plate. The sides of the pan have gates cut in them to allow long material to pass through.My blower is a smaller antique hand cranked model that I found locally. . My next forge is likely going to be a brick one, but if I was building another one along these lines, here are some things I'd consider: . Going bigger. A 3x3' or 4x4' pan would be really nice. Many beginners overlook the need for lots of space to lay in-progress projects, coal, and tools. . Building a heavy wooden frame instead of a steel one. It would be cheaper and easier, and the only parts that need to be steel are the firepot and a good sized section of pan around it to take heat. That said, you could probably line a wooden pan with bricks, and set the flange of the firepot on top of the bricks. . Buying instead of making a firepot. Mine cost more than I expected to make, and the 1/2" thick plate took forever to weld up with my small MIG welder. A cast firepot would be best, but Dave Custer's welded pots are an excellent and affordable option. He sells them on Ebay under Fiery Furnace Forge. . Setting the forge up so that when you're working, you are facing the SIDE of the forge, not the front. Important for easily working longer items that have to pass through the fire. . . #blacksmithing #blacksmith #anvil #forged #forging #coalforge #forge #diyforge #axeandanvil #handforged #fabricated #handmade #diy

More hammered than an ASU freshman during orientation week. I know from experience. In this photo, Corey has pounded in the top curve of the blade and it’s beginning to look more like a knife and less like a rectangular blob. It was kinda dark in his forge and with only f/4 to work with, I had to do some ISO tricks to get enough speed to freeze the action. Seeing this stuff live & in-person is way better than, say, a meal of limp celery or a speeding ticket on a road-trip before you’ve even left Phx city limits ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿป‍โ™‚๏ธ. That really happened. But my friend was driving ๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™‚๏ธ.

Into the dragon’s mouth. This is the single piece of steel being heated to 1700°-1900° F (870°-1040° C) inside the coal-fired forge at Corey’s workshop. Air is pumped in by a foot pedal operated blower while he brings the metal up to the desired temperature for hammering. Fascinating stuff... and a nice way to stay warm on a chilly morning! ๐Ÿ”จ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ”ช @c.dunlapbladesmithing

This morning I went to my friend’s house in north Phx where he has his coal-fired forge. I’m a huge fan of bad-ass chef knives ๐Ÿ”ช and Corey has been making knives for some time now, but most have been daily-carry style, and not for the kitchen. Today he showed me his process by working on a mid-size kitchen utility knife for me. Sweet!! In this picture his hammer is coming down hard on the red-hot steel. I love how the forge-scale flies off upon impact! More pics to come. In the meantime, if you’re a knife enthusiast, check him out here: @c.dunlapbladesmithing

So, for the past couple weeks, on Fridays, at work, I’ve been working on building my own custom coal forge. I already have a cast iron Champion forge that I’ve been using for the past few years, and works great, but last year, I bought an old Champion hand crank blower, (which I later found out was originally was used on a cavalry forge) I saw at a flea market, and knew I wanted to fabricate a forge to go with it. What I wanted to be different from my other Champion coal forge, is that I wanted it to have an actual firepot; one in which I can use to heat larger stock, when needed. Second, I wanted to build it to be more lightweight than my cast iron forge, for when I would need a forge to take along to demos or group meetings. I designed it so that the blower, the firepot, and the pan, can be quickly and easily disassembled for transporting. Can’t wait to light my first fire in this new forge! #forge #coalforge #blacksmith
