jeffrey jacobson : A sledgehammer head makes a good anvil for knife making and other small projects.

UlrichTheDwarf : If you havent yet got an anvil you can always just go to a railroad track and see if theres a spare peice on the side and take it makes a great anvil.

John Upole : You need an enclosed top on the forge to keep the heat in and also get the temperature of your furnace higher than it is with the open top. In open-top furnaces, there's a SHIT TON of heat escaping rapidly, as heat rises. With a closed-top, you retain and harness much more heat, which takes less time to heat up your metals and allows you to heat metals with higher melting points. Also, as you probably learned in this experiment, never use brick or stone as an anvil. Even the most solid cinderblock doesn't make a good anvil. The heat from the red-hot metal makes the stone/brick/block much weaker and can sometimes crack the stone with nothing more than the heat. Brick already breaks super easily and shouldn't be used to hammer on.

Pauly : don't use galv steel. I did for a couple of years. smelt pretty bad. got told its not good for you as its toxic. maybe I should have worn a mask too. anyhow we learn from others mistakes :D even if I end up dead lmao :) have fun

asuko2012 : I lost my shit when Dan got in the picture, I am 6' 3" though, so I know the feels dude xD

OrionsAnvil : I know this is an old vid but its not bad for beginners. If coal or charcoal is hard to get in your area you may look at a gas forge. Keep on forging.

MountaineerBlacksmith : NEVER USE A CLAW HAMMER!!!!

Jim McIntyre : well done!

Diana Oosterhoff : thats awsome i am planing to make one

Debra Taron : I love your uninhibited improvisation. You're awesome bro.

BAD DOODS : quite intuitive using regular bricks

Weapon Smith, Justin : Ive seen people make forges of plaster\ sand mixted. Can i use your design with the bricks then coat it in the mix to make it more permanent?

Caelum Ellis : If u cant find an anvil use old railroad tracks or the pins from a large excavator (an industrial one) you can probably buy the pins from a scrapper. (FYI, I live in Australia so u may not have access to mining equipment like I do)

Daniel Bauer : i'm so glad that i'm not the only 14 year old one, who wants to build a forge

Koch 40 : A kid actually making a blacksmith Forge instead of begging his mum to buy one store bought, or sitting inside plating video games and getting 300 pounds.. Good job young man, you should do well in life, ignore the ignorant negative comments.. If you can find a short section of train track somewhere you'll have a nice little anvil..

Armani Nguon : Good job! It's a forge none the less.

whocares : hey guys its scarse here

joseph flores : I would just like to point out the danger that you're facing using a patio brick for a high heat Forge those bricks are not like chimney bricks and not made to take that much heat change first of all the heating and cooling can cause them to crack isn't as scary as the fact that under high heat those things could quite possibly explode and injure you I have manage to do this just with a campfire and Stones placed around it I've had campfire Stones explode on me luckily I was not within range to be harmed by it butt I think you should be very careful and you should seriously look into getting yourself some heat stones and swapping your friends out because you may be okay for a while doing this but in the future may come to regret that deal very much

William Manning : If you could getvyour hands on a short length of train track (rail) then you'd be set up good anvilwise.

Edinaldo ramalho : Excelente trabalho !

Trippyherb Butterflyed : Thx nice add granted thx moar

Justin Ryan : thats an amazing forge. i came here expecting nothing but wow that was amazing. you would be a good blacksmith if you had a hunk of steel to blacksmith on

jasper edinger : even if you can get a rock that wont split that would work better for an anvil. another cheap option is to find a piece of steal with some holes in it and nail that to a stump... right now ive got a peace of railroad track and that works well... all the best of luck and keep at it...

Katastrophic : you use a brick, but i use a weight

Eddie & Cara White : Great Job Young man, Your Dad an Mum should be very proud of the Gentleman they are raising correctly. .. From one Southern Gentleman to an English one, nicely done sir...

Ray Ray : Cool video m9

Simon Brown : All goo things come to those that are willing to try, It nice to see you do it because I have some bricks out of a storage heater that I'm thinking of making a forge out of.. Good job!

Moushka Gaming : Gut video

Patryk : hey hey, how many bricks did you use?

eastkyphotos : Great job!

steampoweredman : appreciate the fact that its kids working to do this but their forge is a bit ...... well, crap really.

Chris Qiao : good weed

Phi Almighty : first like for the introduction! second like after the video

Jake your mother : this kid decided to just say screw you I'm doing it! I'm 13 and have made 2 forges

LAZIBOI5 : I'm thinking of making one if these with things that I have around the house or I find in ally ways probably gonna use a blow dryer in place of a bellow if I can't make/find one in an alley or something

Squeek Tate : really cool, I can't wait to see what you create in the future. great job.

: If only my mom let me do this

Diana Oosterhoff : can you forge a knife

Kero Kero : What happens when you have a piece of metal rod that needs to be heated in the center?

Sarah Wyatt : This was so excellent, right on! Make a permanent one and see how much you can improve on it! Measure how hot you can get it! So cool. Make a viking battle axe.

Samuel Wilcox : im making a larger one that is circular'

wahyu perkasa : Thanks man. This video have that one detail that other forge DIY videos doesn't have.

Theban Ned Greenman : Good job. If you have no refractory firebricks, I find that lining the inner wall with clay, helps prevent 'normal' housebricks from prematurely failing when the heat is 'cranked up'..

Rezzy Beans : Great Job man!
