Brake Drum Forge

A couple of videos and an image of forge I built last weekend ... I mostly used YouTube videos as a guide ... not counting the time it costs less than $100 to build. Found the cast iron 16" brake drum and plate for the stand at a scrap yard for less than $10. I had to buy the black steel pipe, tee and cap at home depot ... the hair dryer was $15 from CVS. The project took about 10 hours to finish. 

But like everything it's a work in progress ... I'm in process of adding a hearth and  flue

I built a simple solid fuel fired forge
