The forge triangle

This is where the magic happens and one of the most efficient combinations in our forge. The trio of gas furnace, power hammer and coke forge make for super productive days, extreme heat and hours of wearing ear defenders!

Recently we have been forging lots of components for a series of gate commissions, many of which are fire welded together under our Massey power hammer, the furnace allows us to preheat the work before bringing it up the final heat in the coke fire and then welding it in under the hammer. In the depths of winter being in the middle of this triangle is great……. on a hot August day much less so!!!
