Your presentations are really easy to understand and trust the validity of information.
And off subject matter a bit but will you be forging new trade axes any time soon as I would greatly like to purchase one on your Etsy
That absolutely was the most informative yet non-preaching videos I have ever watched. Thank you !!!! Including Fact of you what you know , facts on environmental side is rather important especially depending on where as you said some of these forges would be placed. Where as I am much the same as you just a bit higher in elevation and bit northwest of you in Park County which is anything goes as long as your zoning is business or Agriculture, which I am both and regardless I am still considering the concept and concerns for usage of coal & or coke. I was however sparked by immediate thoughts and light bulbs when you had mentioned charcoal heating for a forge which can be done without even more then a purchase of a large billows as well as can route my stack through my cabin which is half inch fracking pipe as a form of forge / wood burning boiler. Which does not work very effectively or efficient as a wood burning stove but as a wood burning furnace/ forge that changes everything, So thank you to your video my heating /Forge upcoming costs are no longer a purchase , but instead a already have most items and can spend more where I need to for better equipment. I also raise Llama and know most people use wool lining in forges due to the fire resistance wool has is this what you would recommend in your coal forge and or in a charcoal forge ? And assuming I wouldn’t be able to achieve welding temperature at 9000ft with a dual or three burner propane forge however got a good deal on 1000gallons two years ago so would be less labor with propane yet again my stock tank heaters will be fine using that up and to get the smoke rolling out at the start of my day instead of the end of it with long wait for my cabin to heated by days end already would be absolutely perfect, would be amazing!!! I just got frostbite on my fingers and toes so I am ready for some heat after that long recent cold snap we had up here @-20’s .... Even the building the wood burner forge/furnace / ex wood burning stove is in is heavy gauge steel sided building using the scraps left over from the Pepsi center , as the place was originally built by the metal fabrication company who did the metal for the Pepsi center and hence why a metal building has a wood burning stove that was extremely over built as a stove but perhaps perfect as a wood burning furnace/ forge Broken Arrowhead Ranch on Facebook if you happen to have Facebook and would take a look at the metal cabin and give me any helpful suggestions or guidance sir !!! Thank you -Cotton
EXCELLENT THANK YOU YOU DO GREAT WORK STAY SAFE
Here is a great series on induction forging with welding from EJ of the Anvil https://www.youtube.com/user/EricJergensen https://youtu.be/HU1iyWTPJ6Q#EJoftheAnvil
There is an environmental impact that is rarely mentioned, the noise generated by a blacksmith shop. If one is located in an urban area one needs to keep the neighbors in mind.
I live in southwest Florida and the only coal is hardwood charcoal so I'm just gonna design a propane forge
Sir, Fantastic videos!! Thank you for sharing your knowledge in such a clear way!! You are a rare & talented teacher !!! Please allow me to ask this economical question: How much coal would you use in a typical average working day? I see people selling 50 lbs bags forging coal online but have no clue how long it could last compare to same cost in propane gas… Lost want to be beginner.
The Smell, the Want, the Need, the Enjoyment of Creativity, Your more than half way there
Oil Burning Furnace; Look up Beckett Burners folks. Those things get really hot. Another Idea I saw to cut down on the heat on a gas forge, Just Throttle it back with a bypass valve while your hammering. Back to the show...
I started with a Viking ground forge, moved to Whitlock wood forge then to propane, I have never used coal.
I hope they are paying you good for these commercials. 7
You need a coal mine.
watching people who love what they do, is such a difference than watching regular idiots on TV spew on about things that they only get a paycheck to do. Keep up the good work sir.
Princeton Physicist William Happer says we’re in a CO2 deficit. His fellow Princeton scientist Freeman Dyson says more CO2 is actually a good thing. Former M.I.T. professor emeritus of atmospheric physics Richard Lindzen doesn’t think more CO2 is a big deal. GreenPeace co-founder Patrick Moore says that climate hysteria is misplaced. I’m not worried about converting my coal forge to a solar forge.
I much enjoyed your video and consideration of charcoal as fuel. I live in the Southeast U.S. and have tens of thousands of pounds of hardwoods all around me that I need to clean up after our somewhat infrequent snow and ice storms plus hurricanes. I am never at a loss for wood, so I burn charcoal and use that in my forge. It also has the advantage that once burned it does not rot or get infested with wood-eating insects. The best charcoal return that I have achieved yet was with split wood from wild cherry and persimmon trees. That turned out to be very nice stuff and better than charcoal from pecan or hickory. I have 500 lbs. of charcoal in my fuel box at the moment made from trees downed by Hurricane Michael.
