Fire Pot and Forge Hood designs

Unread post by Martin Pansch » Wed Apr 29, 2015 11:52 am

I am starting a new thread with this information with a title that will make a little more sense to those looking for it. The thread it was requested under as an introduction post.

These are some drawings for a fire pot and some forge hoods I have collected. Most have the proper attribution on the drawing itself. One I'll tag, and one, sadly I don't remember where I got it. I also think I have a hard copy forge hood drawing from Guild member Floyd Thompson somewhere around my house but it wasn't where I thought it should be. If I find it I'll scan and add it to this thread.

The firepot design is posted at http://www.blksmth.com by Dick Nietfeld. I weld it all instead of heating and bending on the line as suggested. Just depends on what tools you have I guess. His web page also has some forge hood designs in the "How to" section that warrant checking out.

I think I am going to try a couple Super Sucker hoods myself in the near future. I have heard good things about them and am not entirely convinced a smoke shelf is necessary.

If folks find other designs post them on this thread, with proper attribution, for a repository of info.

I finally found those CAD drawings from Floyd Thompson. They were more than just a hood, it has the specs for his whole forge. Find below broken into two post because of the 5 attachment limit.
