  • New from Townsville - also been told to contact Corin Urquhart


    I'm new to this and based in Townsville. Me and a mate have just started looking into knocking together a forge and some form of anvil and digging around for a few old hammers and files to work into knives or 'hawks... We both don't have a lot of space so trying to keep it simple. Any advice is appreciated in particular people based locally that do some 'smithing in particular with knives/axes... Would be great if we can check things out in person and find someone to get some cutting done on heavier gauge steel as we don't own an oxy torch/plasma cutter.

    Also another local artistic Blacksmith told me to catch up with Corin Urquhart in regards to forge and smithy supplies. Any links, are again, appreciated.

            Welcome, if after a forge mattm82 is making gas forges and selling them. All you have to do then is buy the burner kit off of corin and you are ready to go.
