I do admire your dedication to the task, and also(as I keep telling SIL) starting forging with a project that you can build skills on, rather than taking up sword making at your first fire.
Thanks all for looking. I guess I'm in the minority of not making knives/swords (yet). I built the forge to make railway parts like spikes, switch stand components and maybe lag screws (once I get the learning down).

I'm in northern Virginia and anyone is welcome to stop by and forge. I've got a SB9A lathe on that railway car you see and a large mill and welders not in the photo.

I'm sure we can scale it down in size, and cobble it from some
auto parts laying in the back 40.....
