I'm trying to make a solid fuel side forge, useful even as a barbecue
I found good metal scrap, a round part thick 1\2", good as base. I did air intake from square tube. A broken hairdryer, resistor is gone, will be the air source, I hope it will survive
I built lateral bulkheads from 0,8mm steel, I folded with hammer the edges, because they are really sharp!
I'm thinking about making them detechable, in order to clean and to use as barbecue
I added a front cover and opened a lateral window. I'm not sure of the height of the round cover, maybe I will cut after some attempt.
Slide valve on air intake runs good, currently I don't know how much air forge needs, but I can modify the flux from 0 to max.
Ps: I will add a ready to use switch on off to drive fan

Made, by the way, a couple hundred miles from me.
After a tough afternoon at fire in that forge...
Hungry tired, needing to relax. Already in Northern Italy too [just in case this flew under your radar] I disconnected link for page space. You can unwrap it like a gift.
Saludo Rendoman, you've been busy!
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
