Portable forge pump

This portable forge pump is made of brass and steel. By pulling the handle, water is sucked into the smaller brass tube, and then by pushing down handle the water is forced into the larger tube until it is forced out of the outlet, making the fire hotter. This portable forge would be easier to transport by a farrier, if the usual forging hearth was unavailable or inconvenient.

Dimensions : maximum length: 93cm; handle length: 72cm

Did you know?
You can try the pump yourself--crank the handle on the pump to make it hotter!

This portable forge pump was used by farriers, when they needed a hot fire away from the usual large hearth used by farriers.
