Forges (along with anvils) are required for blacksmiths to work their trade.

To create or smelt most metal items you must be standing within a few tiles of both such House Addons. If you don't have each in your house, the ones in the blacksmith shops around the world are always free for use. Ore can be smelted without an anvil but this is not true for other items.
