So, this guy has done some cool stuff using nothing but primitive tools, and now it seems he may be going from the stone age to the iron age! And that means. . . Blacksmithing!
In this video, he made a forge blower and smelted a very small iron bloom. Very much worth a watch.


And to anyone who is interested in making their own forging charcoal, this guy also made his and showed how he did it in another video.

I'll have to check it out. 

Rule #10;  "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."

I've watched other videos on this guy's Channel. Really interesting and I can't tell you how tickled I am to see him create a blower in a forge out of the clay in the creek really worth watching.

Very interesting. Makes me feel ashamed cause too often I use the excuse, I can't do cause I don't have the right equipment.

Very nice. I went to Congo to teach blacksmithing. Making blowers, tools and such from scrap. This is going back even further in technology. I never would have thought about this.

It's quite incredible. But humans are quite resourceful creatures, so it can be reasonable that something like this has been utilized before. Hopefully this will inspire more people to reach back into those basic skills to use for themselves and keep such knowledge alive.
