The Village Blacksmith by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The Village Blacksmith

Under a spreading chestnut-tree

The village smithy stands;

The smith, a mighty man is he,

With large and sinewy hands;

And the muscles of his brawny arms

Are strong as iron bands. 



His hair is crisp, and black, and long,

His face is like the tan;

His brow is wet with honest sweat,

He earns whate'er he can,

And looks the whole world in the face,…

Coal Supply

I have looked over some of the more recent posts and did not find anything on local coal suppliers, if this post is redundant I apologize. That said, does anyone near Augusta or the CSRA portion of Georgia have a reliable supply for coal? Most of the local suppliers I have used in the past have stopped carrying coal, so any help would be appreciated. I don't mind going north to pick up coal, but I only use a few hundred pounds per year so the time involved is tough to…

Propane furnace

I've made a propane furnace and it works but needs fine tuning. Pictures can be seen on my page. It 's hard to start and keep burning, flame wants to come up the 8" long 3/4" pipe to the orifice. Orifice is a # 57 from Bayou outdoor depot. Just need alittle advice from experience furnace makers.

thanks, Lonnie Harn

Anvil

Hi to everyone, hope all is well. I would like to ask all you experts and experienced blacksmiths out there about my anvil. Is it worth saving? Any ideas? If you look at the pictures you will see the hardfacing is almost entirely gone at the horn end and there is a crack at the same end. Is it repairable or is the repair cost too prohibitive? Would it be easier in the long run to purchase a new anvil? I appreciate any thoughts or comments you guys have. Thanks. (pics on my page)
