Air-Powered Forge

"I use a small forge to make clevises, gate latches, hooks, hinges, and other things out of metal. When you're working with 1/2 in. thick metal or heavier it takes a lot of cranking to get the fire hot enough to bend it. I was looking for a squirrel cage fan that I could use to feed air into my forge when I got the idea of simply using compressed air. I plumbed it into the bottom of the fire pot. It's now so easy to start and control the fire I can't imagine doing it any other way. Works great."
