  1. Devil Forge

    Dillon, check out the Build a Gas Forge attachment on the Forge Supplies page of my web-site. You can get my url and other contact info on my Profile. I think that we here at IFI have previously discussed these forges. The fire brick is a heat sink, even if the blanket is coated (which it does not appear to be) you will be constantly be repairing the interior. Without a cast interior you will poke holes in the sides almost every time you put metal in or out of the forge. The hose does not appear to be acceptable for Propane. If your dad would like to talk to me regarding building a forge ask him to call me. Let me know if I can help you. Wayne

  5. Ribbon burner forge question

    Anthony, you will have better control with a gate valve, you will be able to more precisely adjust the air and be able to find that exact spot each time. If you had put your gas input down somewhere in the vertical run you will get better mixing. I run my forge about .5# pressure. I weld Damascus billets without flux. You can adjust the atmosphere in the forge just like an oxy/ace torch. Adjust a little gas, adjust a little air until you get the atmosphere you need. For general forging I want a natural flame and it is quiet, for welding I want a reducing flame with about 6" of dragon's breath. Let me know when I can help you again. Wayne

    Looks good to me except I would angle the burner more to run across the top to swirl the flame around inside the chamber. Let me know if I can help you again. Wayne.
  10. Mystery hardie

    There were a lot of tools made over the years by smiths for some purpose that later only they knew what they had made it for. like ausfire said it may have been for a swage or maybe something else. Wayne

  12. Perusing eBay and I saw these

    Why? compressed air connectors are about $3.00 a set. Propane connectors are about $46.00. Its the same reasoning for using the type hose being used. Not only do you not use air hose for Propane, you do not use Oxy/ace hose for Propane. Let me know if I can help you. Wayne
