CLEARWATER FORGE

 


Clearwater Forge from the outside


  


 

 

This is a picture looking down into the firepot on my homemade forge. 
The table is just welded up 1/4" deck plate and 3" angle iron. 
The firepot is actually a centrifugal pump casing bolted to the underside of the table.



 

Here we see the underside and the rest of the tuyere assembly. 
The pump casing is cast iron so I expect it to last.



 

And here's my anvil, it's a future 2 I bought from Georgia Farriers Supply. 
My neighbors appreciate this anvil since it has an aluminum base and a gasket between the upper assembly and base, it's not very loud.


 

 

 


 Maker

 

I was in the Earth, unnoticed by all but One.

Then I was found and collected.

 

I was a pile of ore, of one kind, but not whole.

Then I was placed in the fire.

 

I was a bloom, irregular and ugly.

Then the hammer first found me.

 

I was a billet, made whole but without purpose.

Then the hammer moved me.

 

I was forged by the Smith...and glad am I of my time between fire, hammer, and anvil.

By Him and through them I was made, and now can do as I was meant to.
