TheSasquatch33 : Tell Sam he did a fantastic job. Unless he is reading this.... Sam you did a fantastic job. :)

Warped Legacy : Nice little forge. Looks like it would be a good starter forge. I'm gonna stick with my coal forge though. Keep up the great stuff. Define Your Legacy!!

Edward mac : Well that website didn't work..no forges on there

Bethany Doubtfire : Nice one Sam, getting Alec to do all the hard work for a change!

A Tre : Hey Alec, i think it would be cool if you did an induction forge project, that would be amazing

Christian Yaw : Just placed my order. Sure I could build one cheaper, but this way I know it's going to be quality and I see it as a great way to support someone putting out content I enjoy. Thanks guys!

Kaden Gilbert : Campfire works well too if you're on a budget. That, and a leaf blower, or a half-assed bellows...

maffioli14 : Economical? It's nearly 300$ US and it's 5 plates of steel with some holes cut in it, a few fire bricks, and a nozzle. Your better off making your own from scrap. Mine works just fine and all I had to buy was the bricks

TheFullmoonight : @Alec Steele Could you give us name of the song in 1:30 please?

Richard Chapple : Sam's voice just doesn't match his appearance, should be deeper, LOL

Im God : I made a bucket forge from THE KING OF RANDOM, and it gets hot enough to forge damskus! And it cost almost nothing

Anders jensen : Thank you very much for your lovly videos im not having great at the moment but your happy an possive video always helps

The Pilot Penguin : Sam is a pro at tutorialing, explained everything clearly and included the safety precautions. good job sir

M&S BLADES : Sam    You mentioned white heat . Will the small forge reach welding temps.thanks, Martin at M/S Blacksmithing and Blades

Eoin D : Do you sell the burners on their own? And if you do how much are they? Thanks Eoin

tanglediver : "Approximately an inch and a half." ?!?! We do NOT ... approximate, ... in the Queen's English Measure!! ... >< ... Carry on.

Alex Sanchez : Gendry? I swear that's him.

Ekho Naq : Goooo Saaaam! looks great man I'll be getting one soon. I've been wanting to make a trip to come meet y'all- dream to be trained by Allex lol

Hasan Kaya : Hey Alec, just out of curiosity, this 8 minutes video is edited from your entire footage for the day. How long is the entire raw footage? I admire your editing, if this was about watching paint drying, with this style, i would still watch it without even blinking. Thanks for the video btw!

Mientjie Kok : Pause at 0:00...

aaron wood : built my own out of a few pieces of scrap steel leftover from odd jobs. have about 150 bucks in it between firebricks and plumbing parts for the burners. two burners by the way. I can melt copper in 2 minutes from cold start to melted copper. forging and forge welding is no problem.

Connor. scott : Could you buy the forge as a kit and assemble it yourself ?

Anthony Howard : I want one.

Wesley : Thankyou thankyou thankyou! I have been looking for a video like this forever!

Michael Montgomery : Look out Billy Mays; Alec and Sam are coming for yah!

Alex Oelkers : Tried that forge link, it's dead.

Rafael Caracu : *Perfect .* 👍👍👍

rory lobban : Ordered!

gabriel sanchez : Hey Alec! espectacular. debes subir más videos como este. Gracias! Saludos de Argentina!!

reixith : that's so exciting. :D

V8CSW : Order for a diy jobby, just gone in. Pretty handy with a welder so no worries there, should be a nice addition to the workshop. ATB boys.....

Richard Ball : Sam, looking at your grinder: if the inches version is for the US market: dunno whether they ever use the word Imperial. They always seen to talk about English. Weirdly.

Danitz Cutting Works : That's a sweet little fireball man ;)

Matthew Harris : Ordered. So excite.

RetroWeld : Very nice!

huuma79 : Beginner forge made by an expert.... lol love it. Great job Sam!!!!

elams1894 : Sam's the man! Everyone needs a mate called Sam! Massive respect to the epic outro too, very cool stuff!

ki11erBigDaddy : Does anyone know what thickness of steel plate or sheet steel I should buy if I’m trying to make a forge like this

Noah Revoy : Thanks for this!!!

jukebox symposium : I would like a 'double burner' forge made out of a Beer Keg or Propane Cylinder. What about using coal/wood and bellows for a forge? It is good enough to extract metals from rock in a smelt and used throughout history instead of propane, is it good to use as a forge? Could just be blowing air on the coals instead of pressurized propane.. a little extra carbon might not hurt the steel, and it is possible that using propane detracts from 'traditional' forging. Maybe even a hybrid forge between both, using coal & propane with bellows... could just use an industrial 'blower' for your bellow.

nick mercer : DAMASCUS BOOMERANG FOR AUSSIES. hey alec/ sam good to see ya starting up the filming and getting your forges going. just wondering with the fabrication of the forge, will you be fully welding the outside of the forge? if so why not make the square plates sit edge to edge or centre pf plate to centre of platr doing this creates a weld prep rather then welding a flat edge yoy will get better penetration and less clean up or grinding of your welds. just a thought. keep up the videos lads love both your stuff.

Brandon Austin : That is a great little forge, but....... This is not a beginner blacksmith forge. This forge is an investment. The old brake drum forge is the best beginners forge, and you don't need any welding. Can start with wood charcoal until you find a place to get coal. All in all it is a good video, nice looking forge

Eric Cartrette : Awesome resource!  I had an incredible opportunity this weekend to demonstrate blacksmithing at a small Renaissance Faire.  I had quite a few people ask questions about how to get into blacksmithing and the cost of it.  I told them they didn't have to spend thousands of dollars to get into it and how they could build inexpensive first forges and have just a flat piece of steel for an anvil.  Hopefully some people went home having their ambitions to get into blacksmithing reinvigorated.

Don Finch : Grrrrreat. You guys get on well. Entertaining team

Martillo Workshop : I'm one of those getting into blacksmithing. I got a nice anvil for super cheap that I cleaned up and the next step is the forge. It's going to be a blast! I'm also making videos of the process (In part due to Alec's way of making videos)

James Pratt : I watch every video that you upload here on YouTube and I'm very impressed with your talent, skill, and knowledge. I figure you would be the best person to ask this question to: I have watched quite a few videos on making propane forges. This is probably a stupid question but I figure I would still ask. Could I use natural gas for a forge instead of propane? If so, is there a difference between temperatures between using natural gas instead of propane? My wife's grandparents left her their house when they passed away. Her grandpa had a natural gas valve or set up installed outside under the back patio so he could run his propane gas grill off of natural gas instead of propane. I am thinking about using that set up for a forge instead of using propane. This way I don't have to worry about buying a propane tank and refilling it when I run out. In my way of thinking it's a pretty good idea. I was impressed when I saw what he had done and will be even more impressed if I can use it for a forge.

Chris‘s Porch Brewing : Great video guys....  really stoked that Sam's moving forward with this too....  nice little design for the forge....  Word to the wise for future vids where welding's involved...  the arc intensity could potentially damage the sensor of the camera and that'd be an expensive fix, so a filter might be an idea....  keep them vids coming....  Cheers

Universal Love And Enlightenment : Youre an inspiration. Ive been contemplating on building a small foundry as well as small forge...you have definitely tilted me to doing so. Keep up the exceptlary job. Much love from Antlers, Oklahoma, 🇺🇸

KathrynLiz1 : Alec..... have you tried a blown linear burner? I havre built a couple of hundred forges, mostly for farriers...... Hearth 8" x 16".... they work well... :-)

Clyde Day : @Alec Steele I wish you would not only put where you got the music for the video, but also the name of the song. There have been a few of the music you have used that I would like to use also, and this would help out a GREAT DEAL. please :)
