  1. Yes it is. Just got it a couple of weeks ago. It is really heavy duty. The grate is just a piece of 1/4" plate I drilled a bunch of hole in.
  2. This is my Refflinghaus 100 kg. No. 58.
  3. Here is a picture of the one in my forge. It is extremely heavy duty.
  4. That would be great. Thanks
  5. I liked what you were saying about using the fire bricks to form the fire pot. I also like the idea of using a bullet grate.
  6. Awsome, thanks for the Pics. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Frosty I am really leaning toward your design. I like the flexibility and as I really don't know what I am doing yet it will give am a change to mess around with differant configurations until I learn what works best for me. Chance not change
  7. The base construction of your table is very simlilar to mine as you can see in the picture except that I cut a big round hole in mine. Your idea sounds very interesting. I like the idea of being able to adjust the size of the fire. I understand what you are saying about the cap. I can get one close to work. I have also noticed as you point out, many of the forge tables I have seen pics of are set up to work from the side. How important is it to work a klinker breaker into the design?
  8. I don't have a 2" cap handy but I do have a 2" union that I can weld a plate on to make a cap. Thanks for the advice.
  9. I still have the steel that was cut out to accommodate the disk. I could weld that back in and re cut a hole to fit a normal pot. Would that be a better way to go? And then use the firebrick as you suggest?
  10. Would it be better to use fire bricks or weld a rim on the back side of the disk? I have plenty of steel. I could do a 3 or 4 inch rim on the back side.
  11. Hello I am new to this forum and new to Blacksmithing so any advice is much appreciated. I have been working with a 2 burner gas forge for a while and decided it was time to build my own coal forge. I was planning on using a disk harrow blade as my fire box but after doing some more reading I am beginning to think it may be too shallow. I am including some pictures of the forge being built and would welcome any input. Thanks in advance.
