Annother forge
« on: October 29, 2020, 12:07:16 AM »
Was at a flea market recently.   Saw too much of what I already have, kept walking.   2 guys had a batch of farm primitives, pumps, windmill parts, etc.  And some tools that had been on the floor of the barn for too long.   Just about left but saw this litlle stock tank affair.   Not a stock tank at all, but a forge with a tin base.   Cast iron forge table, about 30 x 40 inches, bolted to this tin tank like base.  Has a door to access the cleanout, with neat latches.  Sure looks factory made, mostly all riveted.  Tuyere and clinker breaker are rough, but fixable.  Haggled for awhile,  he took my offer, tried to sell me a rusty blower,  got some.  Guys were so happy they even loaded it for me.  Now to make room in the shop.  Already have a tin rivet forge,  but one can get a much bigger fire in this one.  No name on it, naturally.

The forge, I erred, theforge table is heavy stamped steel, not cast.  Also no leg brackets on the table.  Been hammering for awhile, never seen the like.

I think the term for that style is "stationary forge".
