Brake Drum Forge - similar to my wheel forge.  You can make on in just a couple of hours. Use a shop vac to blow air into the fire, and you are ready for action!  I don't even use coal - I have enough wood scraps that I don't usually need coal for a hotter fire...

Brake drum blacksmith forge - This is how i started out years ago.. a word or warning.. repeated thermal cycling will mess up a concrete block and in a pretty short time too. Having a forge dump over when one shatters is no fun.
