Its been awhile since I have posted on the forum.
Thought I'd venture out on something that would be helpful in making my crossbow parts. So I have built a forge from a old brake drum and dome smoker. Located a 55# piece of railroad track for the anvil and a old vice from a garage sale. I used 4x4 post for the anvil and vise stand. Build was under $100. Not a bad investment to be able to forge my own levers, bow irons and foot stirrups. Maybe a goat foot lever down the road with more experience.
Here's a pic of my build.
