Up for sale:
A Champion Model 404 shop forge with attached Champion 400 hand crank blower. Pan measures about 24” by 24” by 5” deep. Blower cranks smoothly and puts out good air. You just need a piece of flexible duct hose from the blower to the tuyere tube and you’re set. Has a sliding ash gate.
The hood is a handmade, kind of floppy affair that came with the set-up…works ok, don’t need it though.
The pan is solid, tuyere is fine but there is a crack in the down tube, below the pan…see pic. I can MIG a bead on it and seal it up, if so desired. The forge originally had a “donut” of high-temp mortar around the tuyere…I just used some fire bricks. This is a stout, heavy duty forge. I’ll throw in a couple of pairs of tongs and a hammer too!
$300 for the works. For an additional $30 I can deliver it to, (or meet you) within 40-50 miles of Plano, IL. I'll take cash, a Money Order or a Cashiers Check. PM me if you’re interested!
Take care…Crow (Dave)
