I need to make a bunch of stuff, mostly fireplace tools... Most of the handles require forge welding to get them done... My problem is I can't seem to weld in the forge I have... I modeled it after the forges that Daryl Nelson has... Should be able to weld... However, I will be demonstrating at the Lane County Fair for 5 days, in less than two weeks... Lot's of stuff to do including my day job as a farrier.... I want to build fireplace tools, i.e. pokers, shovels, etc... The handles I want to make need to be forged after welding... Do you know of a rod for an ac stick welder that is forgeable?? If I could just stick weld the things together and then forge them, it would save me a great deal of time. And as we all know time is money!!! Thanks for your thoughts!!!
