Good day from Central Indiana


Recommended Posts

I joined because this site was one place where I found at least a picture and a mention about a WW1 Calvary forge I just purchased. An M1918 Empire Forge Chest from Buffalo Forge Co.
I was wanting to gather any more information about it that I could. It does have a patent date of 1878 (it appears) and there is another date that looks like Sept 11 1883 both formed into the casting of the hearth. It is in very good condition and quite complete even with the small wrench for the nut on the crank sprocket.

Welcome to the forum! Super cool! You should post this in the equipment board, and I'm sure some members would know more about it!

Oh, that's a good place to try! I would have recommended somewhere in particular, but this is a bit different! Really cool item! However, it isn't your ordinary military find! Hope some are able to help! Is it for horse shoeing or harness fixing or stuff like that?
