    Well, if I had a larger house with a thousand acres, I would use a real forge to anneal my bells. Currently, I need to do the solder and annealing job on a small workshop two metres from the anvil.
    Did you see how Mr. Champagne makes his historical replica swords in New Jersey ???
    That's the workshop of my dreams...:play:

    Yes we all crave a proper shed - I have my forge and anvil in an otherwise disused single car garage - my only problems centre around soot from the fire interferring with my wife's washing obsession, and the neighbours objecting to the hammer - but I'm always considerate, I don't light it all up at 2.30 in the morning - that's trumpettin' time.

    Too many years ago at a summer music program on the last day. my friend and I marched over to the faculty dorm. One of us pushed the tuning slide all the way in. the other pulled their's out about 2 inches and we played the beginning of the Vivaldi concerto in C for two trumpets. made a terrific sound and woke everybody up! Ahhh, memories, memories
