    fire brick I.D.

    A friend gave me some "fire brick" from a foundry. I am not sure if I can make a forge using these or not. They look, feel and weigh like some kind of cement brick. Any help would be appreciated. I used a sharpie and hi-lighted the makers mark on the brick. Thanks Steve

    Tried my hand at Mosaic pins.
