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...

madebyvmworks:  Progress on the coal forge. Added removable wheels so I could wheel it around outside. If it goes well the plan is to build a vent hood and move it inside. Still looking for a blower to complete the kit. www.madebyvmworks.com
