  9. Why is my leaf spring steel cracking?

    I hear that alot on Facebook so you have to heat the steel before you heat the steel??? Soon as you bring it above critical the anealing is gone. From what I see (and I'm just a newbie)in the op the steel has been worked too cold. I don't think it's was over stressed before hand cause the cracks are where the work is. Just my inexperienced opinion.

  11. Need some help relining

    Which refactory are you using?
  12. Need some help relining

    When I did mine I rigidizer layer by layer and fire cured after both where finished. You could use some screws, screwed in from the out side to hold the first layer in place. The rigidizer will glue the two layers together when you cure it. I would def use refactory where the burner comes in Did you know you can make your own rigidizer for less than $10 for about half a gal worth??

    That dragons breath looks pretty blue! I have used a brick at the back and once it heats up it does seam to get hotter. Tho I don't do that anymore unless it's windy cause I've burnt steel in there before
