Ok I am a 46 year old father of 4 sons and married to the same wife for 28 years. I love woodworking and most art fields, hunting , fishing, dumpster diving( I work for a local garbage company, LOL). I have a bad habit of wanting to try pretty much of anything constructive or destructive. I hope to learn a lot here.
Yes its true the only thing I know about blacksmithing is what I have seen online, on TV, or in books. I have no coal but I have a forge made from a brake drum and am building one from a grill. I have a broken anvil, the horn is broke off but I have both pieces, I also have a railroad track about 10 to 12 inches long and a block of steel as well as a few steel plates I can beat on. the only tools I have are hammers, pliers, and general everyday tools not much for blacksmithing.
