Just a note about forge welding temperature. With time and practice, it becomes apparent from the billet's appearance when it is ready to go. But a handy guide when using borax as a flux is to look for when the melted flux kind of moves and bubbles on the surface of the steel like butter in a hot frying pan. When you see that, you're at or close to the right temp. Just be sure that the heat has soaked through to the actual surfaces to be welded.

Good design: simple, flexible, but incorporating some really useful features such as a large table area for resting work pieces and/or coking coal, and the rail for tong storage.Just one note for those not familiar with blacksmithing. The dangers of welding galvanized was mentioned, but the same applies to smithing too. So make sure any parts that are going to get hot are not made of galvanized. In particular, make sure if you bolt the pot to the tuyere, the bolts aren't galvanized. And of course the same applies to anything near or above the fire. Google "Paw Paw Wilson" for a tragic lesson in just how dangerous that stuff can be.Two thumbs up! :)
