What I know so far:

1. Dig just under topsoil to get clay.
2. Make ingot molds from this clay.
3. Make a forge from pieces of stone.
4. Shove some fuel, the mold and ore into the forge to make the ingots.

To make tools like pick axes and stuff remains the same (i.e. iron ingots + sticks), the difference now is how you get the ingots; this process goes like this: 

A) Gather the required scrap metal (Refer to point 2).

B) Put fuel in the forge (Refer to point 1)

C) Put the required metal and mould into the forge (Refer to points 2 & 3)

D) Wait for the metal to smelt into ingots. The time for each ingot to form is constant but if you have a lot of metal in the forge the batch can take a while. The fuel amount and burn time are important to ovoid wastage (Refer to point 1)

E) Retrieve ingots from forge.  

Forge Requirements:

The forge requires fuel > Metal > Mould

1) Fuel – Can be paper, wood or coal. Each of these have different burn times (the burn time is shown in the top right of the forge details) Paper has the shortest burn time & coal the longest. As you tend to be mining coal is the best bet to get a good burn time.

If the fuel burns out before all the metal is forged, the smelting process stops. You do not lose any material this way just get an incomplete batch.

If the material runs out when there is still fuel in the forge, the fuel continues to burn and is wasted. 

2) Metal – You can smelt the following metals:

Scrap iron = iron              
Source = Iron ore iron ore , pick up scrap iron or break down items such as guns. 

Scrap lead = lead
Source = Lead ore 

Various brass items = brass
Source =Only available by smelting brass items found in the world like candle holders, brass bowls etc. 

3) Mould – Each metal type (as listed above) requires its own mould in order to cast the smelted metal in ingots. The moulds are made from clay which is acquired by digging soil; the clay is then turned into lumps of clay and finally turned into a mould.

The moulds last forever and once one is made it can be left in the forge indefinitely or they can be swapped about if frequently smelting different metal types.

I see, this answers my question - the crafting once you have the ingots is the same. Superb.

Be good to get a good list of useful stuff to craft (see my above post) in this thread, for easy access, as we find new stuff out.
