well its more with what I have been using to get buy with and in the next couple of weeks I'm looking at getting a job to increase my income from $75 to around $200 which will be a big improvement and the other night while i was running it i got the forge so hot it turned red but i have been looking a more robust design. now the fact that you can forge weld with your brake rotor forge is beyond me because i have only twice got the heat sufficient enough for welding and that i had to have a massive pile of wood on top of it but i followed Thomas's advice on starting the fire in the forge and that has worked but i need a forge that isn't a get by with because i don't want this to be a lost cause because i am going to be doing a lot of forge welding
Problems with my current forge
fuel source - currently using wood looking for a coal supplier
the rotor - if i wanted to heat a bar i can only heat the ends i cant heat the middle
Current forge is not mounted.
now i know earlier i was told to find a forge design that was proven but for lack of funds and driving range i could not build one but was better than i had
now i don't know if I'm getting it but lets just say that a reltive of mine had a rich uncle who died and by rich I'm mean with a 1/4 of a million dollars and was a horder of things like there are welders and a forge a vintage old stand up forge with the rounded design and the blower on the side that's missing. now i may or may not get it and that's would be over a year away.
the forge i want is a design that is portable, reliable, efficient, and all of the above.
good space for extra fuel
can heat any shape object at any place
and I'm going to wrap this up because its getting kind of long
