Propane forge issue in Gas Forges Posted February 7 2 hours ago, Frosty said: Frosty The Lucky. Oh sheesh....you might be my new favorite person! I had thought of turning it on it's side like you suggested, but didn't know if that would change the behavior of the forge? As I'm using it now, I can position the piece directly under the flame, with it on its side, would I lose efficiency to the point I needed to even worry about it? You say 3/8 ftp, when I'm searching, I just keep coming across instructions for things like rvs, and water heaters with them just swapping out pre-built hoses. I may be using the wrong terminology. Sorry for what's probably and absurdly fundamental question, but what would I look for to find the pieces or instructions im needing. Now onto the insulation. I'm thinking I should have done some more learning before starting. I confirmed with the company that the blanket on the forge WAS rigidized by them in house. Once I got it, I applied Satanite from a third party. Is that what you mean by refractory mortar? I removed the brick and coated all sides, let it dry for a handfull of days, then fired it briefly in cycles and then applied another coat. I did poke a small hole in the coat, the last time I used it. I had planned on getting more before firing it again, but I think I need to spend some time reading before I commit to that now. Will be removing the brick, and getting a kiln shelf as well as the kiln wash you suggested. That being said, would I be able to put the kiln was OVER the satanite I currently have? Thank you all so much!
