Thanks for the info fellas - those Genshiemer burers sound very interesting. I will probably try to get in touch with him to see how much he's charging these days. Anyone know a price offhand? And contact info?
And any other recomendations?
John - I have made my own burners - 2 Reil burners, 2 Zoeller burners, and 2 Frosty burners. I'm getting sick of making burners. My last 2, Frosty burners, seem to work the best, but for whatever reason don't reach welding heat. I'm not sure if my forge is a little too small and has backpressure, or what, but I've been tweaking a lot, (see my other thread) and haven't managed to get it to work yet. I can't reach white hot, and can barely reach yellow. I'm sure that it is something very simple I'm missing, and maybe with try number 4 they would be perfect, but right now time is money for me. Every second I spend working with a sub-par forge, or working on burners, is a second I don't get to be blacksmithing, which with my limited time, is the main goal. So, I'm thinking about trying professional burners that I KNOW will get hot enough. Just one more variable I can rule out.
