|Perry Napoleonic Field Forge (FN 151)|
Studying the sources (again on the internet), I realised that the beam for working the bellows was fixed on the side of the traverse:

I added a sack of charcoal and a water bucket. About the extra sack I am not sure, Perhaps the charcoal was kept in the box on the ground which for transport is put on the carriage in front of the furnace. But water is essential for quenching the hot iron.
So the forge is now ready for repairs of the French artillery park.
