A lot of people ask me about putting more emphasis on the “authentic” sounds that accompany working at the forge. My usual answer is that it can be damn loud. So, loud that it’s difficult to talk with each other, especially when running a forced-air burner. The other day, I decided to take my day at the forge to demonstrate these sounds. You will hear the noise atmosphere from neighboring shops, the fan of the coal forge and the very loud forced-air burner. Enjoy.
