Lever Operated Rivet Forge

Lever Operated Rivet Forge


Photos from Ted Mays, Tool Collection Tour   Lever Operated Rivet Forge

The earliest factory made forges used these lever operated mechanisms to emulate the operation of a bellows which all blacksmiths were used to at the time. Shortly the geared hand crank blower replaced these.

The title "rivet forge" is given to any small portable forge of the time. During the early structural steel construction everything was joined with rivets set hot. To heat the rivets small coal forges were used, many high in the construction. Later oil forges replaced coal and then electric resistance heaters that heated huge rivets in seconds.
