Brand new to blacksmithing, still gathering tools etc. Wanting to build my own coal forge. If I can figure out how to post pics I picked up a very strange pair of tongs today that for the life of me I cant figure out what they are for. I will be posting lots of questions in the future. Been an amateur gunsmith and machinist most of my life(59 yrs) and always been fascinated with smithing. Hobbies are anything old.
This is actually like an inspiration, fascinating with something and following the same throughout the life is good thing which is generally difficult.
