Introduction: Making a Custom Blacksmith Propane Forge

This video covers the entire build of my blacksmith forge from start to finish. I made it in my spare time and the build spanned 2 months. I use a piece of railroad track as my anvil and that is covered in the video as well.

Watch the video for all the steps involved in bringing the project to
completion. Please be sure and check out all my metal casting instructables I have posted. Thanks for Watching!

    Does it get hot enough to forge weld?

    yes, forge welded once just to see if I could do it. I havent done it since...the flux makes a mess :)

    The Flux only makes a mess when using too much also the old timers added charcoal to their Flux, and this suss helps absorb the Flux and contains the Flux really good. I use 15-20% of crushed charcoal. It's the only way to go. And you'll have better blades after several folds.

    Brilliant work! Keep 'em coming. I may just sub on YouTube, it looks very professional and good.

    I BUILT MINE VERY SIMLER TO THIS ONE COUPLE MONTHS AGO. USED TWO BURNERS BUT HAVING TROUBLE IN GAS DELIVERY. DROPPED BACK TO ONE BURNER AND SEEMS TO WORK ALOT BETTER. THINK I LIKE YOUR DOOR SETUP NUFF TO GO AHED AND ADD MINE. NICE JOB!

    thanks, glad you liked it...good luck on the door set-up the hinge is from a BBQ grill :)

    I'll never build it. Don't have the resources here. Also in California they won't sell the dog gone wool. I hate the black smith's here. they regulated themselves out of jobs.

    They won't sell rock wool (Kaowool) in California? What's their raionale behind that?
