  1. WOW never mind, dont like the tudes I jeep getting here.. I put up drawling, explained my self, asked question pertaining to Anthrasite. I give up. Good bye Please delete me!
  2. what type of coal r u planning on using? I just checked your profile out. Are you talking Kens custom? I'm there in February!
  3. Well I was trying for information specific to Anthracite and this thread I thought was about it. I am working on a volumetric spread sheet on my ribbon burner design. waiting on a good quality gas flow meter. I dont think you could make one on a coal forge due to ambient interactions of the open fuel chamber... ?
  4. Bear with me. I'm new to this site???  

  5. The flame is spreed out in a 3" defusing pattern. Much like a rose bud. so directly facing material would be more evenly heated. Insulating brick could not handle the Pressures im exerting on them. As far as efficiencies When I'm working my tong materials (just getting started) the metal turns red way before the brick does. Yes insulating would be good if I needed to run burner longer than 5 mins or so. But then I would not be able to heat my coffee on it Like I do now. lol
  6. yes, ribbon from my research? Its 1'5 inch to 2" adapter mated to brick air tight. 12 or 14 holes drilled in brick 5/16. So the forced air mixes along the way & the adapter evenly distributes the air-fuel mix to chamber. I have a vid link here. if I CAN POST LINK. i BEING BANNED FOR IMPROPER USE OF QUOT??
  7. I guess I can try.... not sure if it's appropriate for a newbie to start new threads... at least in my tech groups I belong to they frown on newbie threads... what does this mean? Edited 28 minutes ago by Mod34 Excessive quoting
  8. oh believe me I have read up in here as much as I can, yes I've read about JABOD. I just want someone with real world experience to tell me , yes looks good start there or no way dude your a xxxx xxxx do this... I built a small brick ribbon burner now I'm looking for what I need to get to larger pieces of mainly decorative dressings on my silo house. . I have stair railings & balcony's, door knockers & large cedar wrought iron door (i'v already built but needs dressing) all the way down to drawer pulls, shelf brackets & such. See this is what I'm doing for my retirement. This in my fun time to enjoy life. Peace Out!

  10. Great read, but were can I find the "ideal size" pot size for my only local sourced TSC nut Anthracite 40 lb. . Plus optimal BTU blower requirements. I want to get this build right the first Time. So many conflicting options in here, I'm not sure what to do? PLEASE direct me towards any useful information on this. i'll attach a 3d drawling I put together per info on u tube... ? it seems too deep to me but hey what do I know..... That why I am here! Thanks & Peace Out!

  17. I just heard from a local scrap-er that my local steel yard will not let no one scrounge around anymore. I guess someone slipped on a pile of steel and nearly cut there arm or leg off... That really sucks for me just starting out... re-purposing is my main goal for the silo house..
