Default E&M Forge

Just got our bigger forge the other day so now me and my brother in law are calling our forge officially open

Basically we turned an old building into a blacksmith shop, we aren't finished collecting equipment, and probably never will be but it's operational.

Our specialty is hammers but we are trying to do a variety of stuff, hooks, decorative, tools etc.

The name comes from our last names put together

Some of our hammers, there made from 1045 with hard maple handles

Thanks, we also have lots to learn, and equipment to collect.
A very interesting newish hobby I guess, engines will always be #1 though I think

Been doing some other work.
Here is a towel rack, and 3 examples of whimsical trees.
I do the trees for commission occasionally for people

You will find it more good to have your forge anvil and or power hammer & vice set up in a triangle so you only have to take a few steps to get to any of them. Also have your slack tub close to your anvil. Nice shop & equipment by the way! Do you have a coal forge also?

We have 2 coal forges, and 2 propane.
The shop has come a long ways this winter we have bulk propane now and plumbed in so we don't have to trip over lines.
I am working on a new tree for my own collection, I'll post when it's done.

We're in the boonies but anywone welcome if your ever around let me know
