Forge welding is the process of heating to pieces of steel or iron to its molten state and join them by striking them with a hammer.

To forge weld two pieces of steel:

  1. Round the two pieces of steel where it is to be welded. (Called scarfing)
  2. Heat the two pieces of steel until the steel is bright red wire brush the area to be welded to remove contaminates from the area to be welded
  3. Coat the area to be welded with flux. (this seals the area to be welded and prevents oxygen reacting with the area to be welded "20 mule team borax" or clean sand, works well for flux)
  4. Heat the scarfed flux area until it is in a molten state quickly and lightly tap the two scarf pieces together.
  5. If everything has been done properly then the two pieces will be welded together. Joint cohesion can reach as high as 98%. Then there are some days when even though you thought that you did everything the dam thing won't stick.

No, Forge welding is the simplest form of welding where two metals are heated to a state than can be forced to meld into each-other such as hammering or by other mechanical means such as a press. MIG Welding is short for Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW). This is a process which uses electricity to melt the parent metal and the electrode (wire) while shielded by a inert gas to keep contamination's (our atmosphere (aka air)) out of the weld puddle. Forge welding uses brute force and heat to join metals while MIG welding uses electricity and a shielding gas.

Most likely during the Bronze Age.

Basically, they forge metals. If it were not for the blacksmith, society would not be where it is today. Blacksmiths made the eating utensils (knives, spoons, forks, ladles, etc.). They fashioned the wheels for wagons, hinges for cupboards, hardware for harnesses, horseshoes, nails, and the list goes on.

Welding has been around since the Bronze Age when man needed to join two or more pieces of brass/bronze. Forge welding was probably used at this time also. Forge welding as we know it was used during the Iron Age when Cast Iron was developed. But the modern welding you see (Oxyfuel Torches, Plasma Cutters, Mig Guns Etc....) was founded or developed just in the last 110 years or so.
