    anvil stand 001

    I used 2X6 Pressure treated lumber for main body,with 1/2"threaded rod to hold everything together. 2X4's around the base, and top. For the tool holders, I used 1.5" Angle with 2" Exhaust pipe welded to that.

    Hammers

    I would like to get some feedback from anyone who has used rounding hammers. I am going to purchase one, and would like to know, "Is there any difference in the quality..............NORDIC VS. DIAMOND?" Thanks

    Gas usage rate?

    Right now at the coop near me I can get my 20 lb tanks filled for $14.25. At the exchange they are $22.00. That's quite a savings. As far as how long a tank will last a single burner forge will use (approx) 1 lb per hour @ 3 psi., 2 lbs an hour @ 6 psi, and so on..... Another thing that will make a difference in fuel usage is the type of insulation in the forge. Any gas forge should have a Reflective coating in it,(plistex,Metrikote,ITC 100 HT) if not get some. it makes all the difference in the world. I just finished building a (single burner) gas forge, and cannot believe how well it works. I get a hell of a lot more heat from that single burner, than I ever did with the 3 burner, which will now be getting a Metrikote treatment.
