• You’ve done forging yourself I take it? I’m going to take some classes in blacksmithing over the next couple of months and then build a forge if I like them in the summer. Any tips?

    • Aye, been a long time since I've forged though.

      First tip I have is protection. Make sure you have lots of protection. I long gloves, safety glasses long sleeves and long pants.

      Second tip is to make sure you actually understand what your doing.

      Third and final tip. Do not under any circumstances put steel you do not know the substance of into a forge. Several steels are made using a process that makes them poisonous when heated.

    • I’m assuming most railroad steels would be fine :/

    • I think it would be fine. Like I said it's been a while since I've forged.
