Basic Brake drum Forge for under $40

Just a basic run through on a tried and true standard.  The small scale hobbyist smith coal forge, with upgrades soon to come.  I spent many happy hours in my youth turning out dozens of leaf blade throwers hammered out of hydraulic lifters with a forge just like this and a scrap of I beam as an anvil.  I eventually expanded my horizons and started making more useful tools and articles in steel, began experimenting with forge welding and then broke my hand.  Six weeks late...


My Forge. Do not let anyone tell you a coal forge will not get hot. This one is a brake drum forge with a blower. Having one taught me how much energy is in a hand full of coal. Amazing.
