Designed to free craftsmen from dependence on fossil fuels, the Whitlox Wood-Fired Forge is optimized for burning raw wood or charcoal. The deep firebed has sloped sides, making fire management effortless. An innovative tube within a tube draft design offers dial select precise air supply control. The firebed itself has a moveable divider to restrict the size of the fire to only the needed area, conserving fuel. Remove the brick from in front of the divider and you can lay a long bar across the fire unimpeded. The 24x18x9" forge body is constructed of welded eleven gauge steel, nearly 1/8" thick. The wheeled stand makes your forge portable: just wheel it out for use and put it away when your project is completed. The stand is 28" high, built of 1/8" 1"x1" angle. Included is a cast aluminum Zomax handcrank blower which mounts on the left side of the forge with an included bracket and ducting.

1. A weld broke on the cap of the airflow control pipe, allowing air to escape. The cap is tack welded on, and the tacks lack penetration.
2. The flexible air supply pipe is larger than the fittings it connexts to, so you have to crimp it down and it slips off fairly easily.
3. I could really use a handle to move it around with. Not a big deal, but it would be really nice. A handle in the right place could also work as a tool rest.
1. I have used my forge with wood, charcoal, and coal. It works great with all of them.
2. It heats up quick, and I have used it to forge weld.
3. The design allows you to put very long peices all the way through.
All in all, this is a great little forge.
Design of the forge 5/5. It is highly adjustable and efficient, they also had some smelting equipment for these forges last I checked. One thing I may do is make a thicker plate insert so I can remove the kaowool and bricks that I use for charcoal and insert the plate to protect the original structure for burning coal.
Quality of entire complete product 4/5 I have not had to replace any of the firebrick after years, they do take some wear while forge welding but they have held up wonderfully. The built quality is also really well thought out and sturdy. The reason for 4 instead of 5 is the blower arrived with a crack on the gear plate and was not the one pictured but did not want to go through sending a brand new blower back. Not sure how returns process is with them. Will probably restore an old blower rather than buying new if I run into problems with it.
Customer service 5/5 While it took a while to get everything shipped they were nice to talk to and already knew what was going on with my order without even looking into it.
I have used this forge with ladles and a hood for smelting, forge welded many times with it. Even worked on a 15 pound bar for a power hammer build in this. It has held up very well and fuel is easy to come by and safer to be around.
The bricks, frame, kaowool, and parts came in several different shipments but everything came eventually.
The family that make these in Oregon were very nice to work with and communicated with me while I was waiting for all the parts to arrive. The only thing I ended up having to buy were some nuts, bolts and washers at my local hardware store as I was short one of each.
If you're a blacksmith or are beginning to blacksmith and need a forge, look no further..
The secret is to cut your pieces of wood into 3 x 4 inch chunks. Use 2x4 cut offs until you can get your fire hot enough to start consuming hardwoods like oak and ash.
Pros: very versatile since you can use wood or charcoal and since you decide how big of a work area you want to use with the forge.
Love how you can control how many holes are open for the air flow, has really helped with fire management of the forge.
It is fairly portable, I purchased the full set including the stand.
Things that could be better:
First, have assembly instructions in the package, I didn't receive any, although super easy to assemble.
Second, not all of the holes on the forge fit the hardware provided so I had to do some hand filing to get it to fit, not a huge problem though. And it was missing 2 bolts or screws for the blower to be attached to the forge. But it was easy to get.
Third, as far as being portable it is but since it semi heavy fully assembled with fire bricks it makes it hard to move, so if it hand some kind of handles it would be so much easier to move.
And since not all of it comes in one package due to the weight it would be nice if they made sure everything was sent at once, initially I didn't receive the manual blower but after emailing the company through Amazon a few days later I received it so not a big deal.
So overall for the money I spent it just would have been nice if those few things had been fixed, but after using it for a week now it is definitely well worth it in my opinion because I know I couldn't have made something as nice.
Definitely recommend any beginning bladesmith or blacksmith get this, I think it will be the only one I ever have as long as I take care of it.
