    NJ specific law regarding propane

    And if you check with them they probably don't have a clue about forging and gas forges. I doubt that there is a problem but who knows what some bureaucrat will think. I know that there are many blacksmiths and bladesmiths in NH using gas forges. Let me know if I can help you. You can find xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx I xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Wayne Coe

    Naturally Aspirated Ribbon Burner. Photo heavy.

    Frosty, you are to kind. I will send you a pint of Metrikote if you will test it and give your (honest, which is the only opinion that I've known you to give) opinion here. I don't think that I have your mailing address so e-mail me. the2ndcashboy the way you did the forge weld is not the best way to test a weld. There is no scarf shown there. It is good that you did get a weld there but it would be better if you did a proper scarf for a test. Let me know when I can help you. Wayne

    Naturally Aspirated Ribbon Burner. Photo heavy.

    I can say that when I added Metrikote or Plistix it cut the heating time in half to get a piece of 1" square up to forging temps. Let me know if I can help you. Wayne Coe

    Ribbon burner breakage

    A properly built Ribbon Burner, using the proper castable should not have problems with breakage. Stress risers occur at inside corners. Let me know if I can help you. Wayne Coe

    Material suggestion for different Mokume

    None that show up well. I first ground the round billet to the shape of a hart, then with a narrow fuller incised an * both sides, then ground to a domed shape on both sides until the incised marks were gone. This left a * shape of alternating colors of copper and nickel.

    Material suggestion for different Mokume

    I alternate quarters and nickels. Google US coin alloys. You will find that quarters have more copper than nickel. If you will alternate the layers you will get more contrast. I typically use $1.15 for a billet. 4 quarters and 3 nickels. I don't think that sounds to expensive. The wedding ring that I ware is made that way. I also make nice sized heart necklaces that way. Let me know if I can help you. Wayne

    First forge - 40# propane tank

    chuyn, a forge and burner are quite simple and easy to build, you just need to study and follow the instructions. As Frosty has said to many times, " pick one design and stick to it. Do not look at a lot of different plans and then try to use parts from many. Let me know if I can help you. I prefer e-mail. Wayne

    Drilled (no crayon) ribbon burner

    I notice that you did not put a baffle to help spread the gas across the plenum and thereby get more even gas distribution and a more even flame. Let me know if I can help you. Wayne
