Just got our bigger forge the other day so now me and my brother in law are calling our forge officially open

Basically we turned an old building into a blacksmith shop, we aren't finished collecting equipment, and probably never will be but it's operational.

Our specialty is hammers but we are trying to do a variety of stuff, hooks, decorative, tools etc.

Thanks, we also have lots to learn, and equipment to collect.
A very interesting newish hobby I guess, engines will always be #1 though I think

You will find it more good to have your forge anvil and or power hammer & vice set up in a triangle so you only have to take a few steps to get to any of them. Also have your slack tub close to your anvil. Nice shop & equipment by the way! Do you have a coal forge also?

We have 2 coal forges, and 2 propane.
The shop has come a long ways this winter we have bulk propane now and plumbed in so we don't have to trip over lines.
I am working on a new tree for my own collection, I'll post when it's done.

We're in the boonies but anywone welcome if your ever around let me know
