I’ve started building a portable forge cart. I have a really nice smithy with a brick and cast iron forge but needed a portable forge for demonstrations. The cart is built around a couple old-style iron wheelbarrow wheels a friend gave me. I am forging all the hardware. The forge proper is going to be a clay lined sheet metal pan with a hand-cranked blower another friend found for me (nothing like friends!). I plan to add a small toolbox to the front of the cart. Hope it has a real “old-timey” look!

Pretty much finished. I have used it at a couple demos. Works great! Only problem is that the vise is a little “shaky”!
