Bob Schantz, CJF, developed, patented and manufactured an atmospheric propane forge. He is owner of Spanish Lake Blacksmith Shop in Foristell, Mo., and is a 2004 inductee of the International Horseshoeing Hall Of Fame.
Gas forges are commonplace in today’s farrier rigs. We use them so often that it’s easy to become complacent and operate on autopilot.
A recent incident in which a farrier was seriously burned while refilling his propane tank serves as a stark safety reminder to all farriers and blacksmiths who carry a gas forge and propane tank in a vehicle.
Texas farrier Don Mock's shoeing trailer was built as a project by (then) high schoolers Warren and Dean Evans.

This trailer won the best FFA project award at the State Fair of Texas.
