Beginner blacksmith! 100# Trenton anvil (late 1800's) welded to 1/8inch steel plate and welded to homemade stand. Majestic Forge Delux 3burner forge on top of and old bbq grill (for mobility). We all got to start somewhere :)
My son caught the blacksmithing bug while he was at summer camp so we investigated building our own blacksmith forge and found that brake drum forges are a very popular way to get into the hobby. We built our blacksmith forge out of a brake drum, 2" pipe, cinder blocks, a light dimmer switch and hair dryer. Here is a video with all of the same pictures in this instructable plus a short video at the end of the forge in action.
