The Bellows for the Brick Forge

The Bellows for the Brick Forge

The object in the rafters, with the pliant sides, is a bellows. The black metal machinery next to the forge has a crank, which can be turned. When the crank is turned, air moves through the black metal pipes. The pipe that connects to the forge is a tuyere. This system is used to keep the coals hot, so that metal can be worked in the forge. Economy was the third settlement started by the Harmonist Society, and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Properties. The site is located in Ambridge, Pennsylvania. For more information about the Harmonist Society’s settlement at “Oekonomie,” visit the Old Economy Village website.
