  1. larry fill those plates up!!!!when I was in welding school we started with a 3/8'' plate and our teacher would make us weld on the same plate till it was 1.5''or more.Fluxcore was one of the trickiest welding styles to learn for me cause the molted steel and flux are so close in color.The best advise my teach gave me and I hope it helps you is dont just watch the puddle look 360*,in other words watch where your going and where you been.Hope it helps.

  2. Does anyone know if theris a safe way to use a forktruck style propane tank for a gas forge.I bought one thinking it would work but the boys at the welding supply say no.Please let me know. Jason

  3. Steve, the wood is heart pine I salvaged from my houseand I got the color from mix oil painting paint with a dash of mineral spirits, then brush on wipe off and it stains the lighter part.I dont think the darker grain in this wood will take stain. The metal is a pry bar I bougt at a swap for 2$. Tomorrow I'm gonna do a hardness test on it at work I'll let you know how it turns out.

  4. I was thinking of trying to compress refuge from french fry grease into bricks.(after someone filters it for diesel alt fuel.)But 2 things stop me...1 I dont have a coal style forge..2 I dont know anyone who filters it. Anyone think it would work? I think it would work but Im not sure about the mess or how long the bricks would last.

  5. I used to inspect trash burners and I got minor lead poisoning.Let me just tell you that it is the worst feeling in the world.Always feel like you been up for 3 days scatter brained I stay away from lead every chance I get.If you have kids strip in the shed and wash your hands with cascade .

  6. Thanks Ice all i have for turbulance now is a washer welded on the end of the outlet pipe, i was thinking of twisting a spiral and putting it in the outlet I wont know till saturday though . I need money for propane.

  7. I think I remember not to long ago someone asking about a blackspot in thier NA forge and people were suggesting a blower well...One of my forges is a 10" I.D compresser tank with a 2" inlet vertical and I'm lucky enough to have an Industrial air mover for a blower.My problem is that I get a blackspot on the bottom of my forge,also I cant for the life of me get forgeing temps .I get just there but no cigar ,and if I add to much gas the flame goes carberised.I cant find a Cfm on the motor. Any suggestions TIA
