Making a New Forge - Part 5


I made this part last year but I forgot to write about it at the time. It is the last part on the outside of the forge.

I used galvanized sheet metal for this. Ordinary would be better but I do not have any. The holder is on the outside and thus it should not be getting hot enough to release zinc vapors.

It is essentially a short tube with legs, made from two pieces of sheet metal. The legs were riveted to the housing. I will show it at some point in the future when I can test the forge and make a picture in action. It is finished now but it is covered and put aside while I work on other projects.
