Nope, I got an anvil, swage block, blower and leg vice plus ...
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!

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.
