I am looking to set up a forge and am looking for local vendors in the Seattle/Tacoma area where I can get purchase equipment like a press, power hammer, and belt grinder. I would prefer to buy used if possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hi Rick.  Probably the best thing for you would be to attend our “Swaptoberfest” this October (see the “Upcoming Events” section on the home page).  There will probably be everything you need to set up your shop (well, with the exception of power hammers or hydraulic presses) there.  I’d suggest getting there early, as things get snatched up pretty quickly.

It used to be in Seattle, but this year it was moved to Longview in conjunction with a mini-conference with demonstrators. 

See you there.

I have a 50lb power hammer for sale.  Please check out the attached craigslisting.

I have many other blacksmith items for sale as well.  Contact me through the craigslist if you want to discuss.
