Thanks guys, lots of room for improvement.  Looking forward to getting my own forge set up and start practicing!

i would recommend looking in to a ribbon burner. Very efficient.    Search " ifi forges 101 ".

Dressed up grandpas handled hot cut and made one more for my striking "anvil" (cast steel tractor weight) from 1 3/16" axel.  Did all the work on my vertical rail anvil except upsetting in the modified hardy.

2 USA made steel wrenches, one will be a blade, one might turn into a hatchet

Last weekend I attended the Understanding and History of Blacksmithing held at the Northwest Museum of Art in Spokane.
 
 We spent time at the forge and watched a very interesting documentary titled The Devil’s Blacksmith, its about an hour long but I could not find the complete movie, here is what I did find - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHklYJ7XWqeM9vssHufS8_Q/videos

They also had zombie auditions at the Museum….I passed.


Columbia Fire and Iron is having a hammer –In June 24-25th at Morgan Jade Ironworks , 2403 E Euclid Ave, Spokane

made a hot chisel a while back out of some H 10 and thought I would try it out, so I made a couple hot dog roasters for the camp fire.  I used some 1/4 x1/4 stainless steel and split the fork, added some twists and back twists in the stem and used some antler I had laying around for the handle.

Love those forks.  304 SS?

I had a blast at the hammer in.  Picked up a set of tongs and a 260lb block of steel to replace my rr track anvil. It's 3.5"-12"-22"

not sure what stainless it is, just something had laying around.  I got some scrap rebar and made my wife a garden gate, then I had to make a spider to go with it.  the spider is made out of 2 spoons and some old spokes from my panhead.
