  1. Until AFB gets his burners released for sale, I do want to try modelling/printing a few myself. With the burner pointing upwards do y'all think the printed ones would last a few months? Planning to put one in a NARB too; again nozzle pointing up. AFB; how did your printed prototypes fare; did they ever see extended use in a forge? Or am I on a dead end, too much heat radiating to be safe? I can picture printed burners faring better in a NARB.
  2. Glad to hear Mike and others think that the twisted strip will work in the NARB, I had been thinking it would create too much turbulence/air resistance for the air to be drawn in fast enough.
  3. This one caught my eye, I wonder if these could be modded so hole is at the centre of each twist, and then we stick it in a NA burner. Probably would cause too much turbulence but would be a fun test. thematrixiam, as for making these, what about cutting some steel part way through and then twisting? with a blown burner would it matter if these static mixers are super accurate?

  4. Thanks for the welcome Frosty. This Forum is a goldmine. I'll get onto adding info to the header. Vincent
  5. Heres a couple screenshots from a book I stumbled across. I've only had time to give one section a quick look but I think some of you guys would find something useful from this book. I think some real fine tuning could be done with the holes sizing and location in all homemade ribbon burners, NARB and blown. I've been lurking for a while, can't wait to make a NARB and hopefully get a frankenburner attached to it one day. I don't have any welding equipment so I am mulling over no weld solutions (haven't thought of a good one yet) or get a cheap arc welding machine, might get some use out of it for future projects too. https://books.google.ca/books?id=SAjLBQAAQBAJ&pg=PA450&lpg=PA450&dq=ribbon+burners&source=bl&ots=Xzg9dR9RQ_&sig=ACfU3U3-l01c3SLLKJHBkVx453ACa2wX4g&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwifqrTL77_hAhWEvZ4KHZjzAO4Q6AEwR3oECGEQAQ#v=onepage&q&f=true
