Forge Title Graphic

Working with steel requires an incredible amount of pounding. In the late Middle Ages, waterwheels were often used to make a big hammer rise and fall automatically.

A small dam across a river provides the power for the forge and putting the building in a forest insures that there will be plenty of fuel for the furnace.

The Forge is 15 x 17 1/2 inches (48 x 56 studs) and is 12 inches high. It features a working water wheel and trip hammer and it slides apart to reveal the interior details.
