    Nope, I got an anvil, swage block, blower and leg vice plus assorted tools, but the guy didn't have a forge so I will have to make that myself I guess. I don't have time to build the smithy yet but wanted to grab the heavy stuff when I found it locally last year, they do pop up on eBay occasionally but shipping for these things can be a real bitch

    I was pretty lucky I think, couldn't find stuff anywhere in the local area then one day I went into the car wreckers and blow me down if he didn't have all manner of blacksmith stuff because he planned to set up a museum. He was willing to sell anything he had more than one of, which was most everything as it happened.
    If you have the blower you can make the forge out of an old truck brake drum. Plumb some iron pipe into the center of the drum ad a 90 dregree elbow and another longer pipe to the blower. Then you just need some legs and a small grate to cover the center of the drum. Get some hammers and some scrap steel and start making your own tools!

    Yep, I plan to do all that. Brake drums are a common method, just need to finish our container house first, for some reason the missus wants a kitchen before a smithy.

    Yeah I know, go figure

    I'm looking forward to doing a lo-tech hobby, I design computer hardware and that's too dependant on hi-tech.
