  1. A quick Google search yielded this http://www.feblacksmith.com/org.htm if you scroll down a bit you'll get to France, I didnt check if any of the links were still active but it might get you going in the right direction
  2. Ni! <In a night pitched squeaky voice> You must bring us a shrubbery!!!
  3. I've heard some fairly offensive variations frosty, but that is the general idea yeah
  4. On top of this standards from one city/state/province/region/country differ greatly
  5. But a brain is roughly spherical so the volume calculation is V=(4/3)πr^3
  6. That's still enormous, at 16" long with an internal diameter of 11" you will have a volume of about 1520cubic inches, a well built 3/4" burner heats 350cubic inches to welding temps which means you will need 4 3/4 inch burners. That will be a gas hog. Now if you are set on a forge this size you can build an internal baffle wall to reduce the internal volume when you only need half of the forge, but even then it's still quite large.
  7. Lou, that is looking really good, I love the idea of using the ducting, it's simple and looks to be very effective!
  8. Many get confused and think we are making an object or item.. ( making a bolt, or tongs, or a handle).. Truth is we are making a skill set applicable every where.. jlpservices
  9. Lou I just dont think your trying hard enough Someone needs to forge a set of armour that looks like a baggy tshirt and khakis lol
  10. Check out the following pinned threads: burners 101, forges 101, and the frosty T burner thread. They have all of that info and so much more.
  11. I believe it is an Eagle anvil, and I seem to remember them having some connection with the US navy
  12. The only issue is I have yet to find a supplier in canada that has their bricks, and shipping plus duties for international shipping is prohibitively expensive, plus I already have more ceramic blanket than I know what to do with. I have been looking into their products but haven't had success here.
  13. I did not know the name though I have seen it in other application thanks! And I was thinking that over the width of the insulation 2 1/4" about 3/8"-1/2" height/deep for the peak and valley should be adequately strong.
  14. I wonder if welding angle iron to the edges as a stiffener and continuing the kaowool/flame face to the edge of that would work? Another question, I've never welded stainless and only have a small mig welder which only runs fluxcore wire, would a heavier gauge mild steel angle iron work?
