    Forges 101

    That’s pretty interesting. The shell especially. I wonder how hot it it outside the shell?

    Yes I agree. I won’t use it enough to justify buying a top dollar machine when a harbor freight one will do just fine. I will need it and a tap set to do thebuild. That’s the only thing stopping me.

    I’m reading about these 3/8” burners and looks like I’ll need a drill press. I’ll be buying one soon.

    I thank you for encouraging words. I’ll do just that. Okay aroundwith coffee can or muffler firges and small burners!

    Forges 101

    I don’t mind any feedback! Thanks I had the brick 1/4 away from the rear opening. But I also add a lip to keep the rear ending closed a bit more than the front. The flames out the rear and Fron are almost equal in amount. The burner is faced towards the rear but When I angle the burner even more that way flame only comes out the rear. I tried closing the ends withbricks and it seems to hold heat but the way it’s burning now is very hot. I know now what your saying about neutral flame. I can get it to do that when I pul the burner out and leave a gap for air to come in with the flame. But it actually took longer to heat up and when I put anything in the chamber it blowed the flame back out that gap. Likeghechamber is pressurized. Weird. The forge gets hot! I have a 6” square pipe same length as this forge and I think I’ll use it and put this little one in the6” one but first wrap it with Koawool. Maybe that will help it retain some heat? Not that I think it needs it because it gets way hotter than my micro forge!

    Here’s the flame. Looking better after playing around and adjusting depth ect. It get very hot!! Pictures are from start just out to full power! Also a picture showing flameout the back and front. Is it looking ok?? I never had a production firge so have nothing to compare to?

    Second forge build the “Micrini”

    Here’s after playing with the burner depth, air ect! It looks a lot better

    Yes the flame is you said. I played around a bit with it and got it to burn decent after a good long while. I think I’ll do the 1/2” t burner soon as I find all the parts. Unless... does anyone here have one already built for sale?

    Second forge build the “Micrini”

    Here’s the first fire! Ran it for 1 minute at just barely on, them about 5 minutes at low medium then after an hour to cool repeated and it’s now at full temp! Swirls great! I’ll play with the different burners but plan on using my torch which I tried and worked good in this forge as well! Inthe pictures you see the atlas 30k burner and atlas 20psi hose. So far it’s been an hour no issues. I’m liking the swirl a lot!

    Sounds like a plan! I’ll let you know in advance. Won’t be for another month or so.

    I just drove through Boise almost 3 weeks ago! I do pass through every month or so and I’ll contact you! Good info on the tanks! It sounds like the perfect size for my intended use! I like the chamber of 3.5”-4”x12”-15” and sounds like those tanks are a winner! Sounds easy enough. Better than taking a torch to it!

    I’ll look into those.

    I did that with my micro forge and plan to do it with this one. I just hope the Kast-O-Lite stays together and doesn’t crumble into dust when I fireit up. I’ll keep this updated.

    I was going to use the 1” wool like my micro forge but decided to save it for a bigger forge. I did the The cycle curing with my first forge and plan on doing it again. As for the hot housing I figured it be hot that’s why I made legs. But it was more of a last minute build. I do have the atlas 30k and others to play with in it. I’ll keep this updated. Some good info. I almost covered each end but didn’t because I figured it needed the open end to try and air it out and help expansion. But I obviously don’t know much at all. That’s exactly part of the reason I did that. The other is to try and get the flame/heat to swirl in there like my micro forge does and that one dies it very well! I already got a 6” square pipe and if I can find one I want some kind of round refrigerant tank. But no luck finding one. I may just wait until I can find one or justuse the 6” square?? Either way the next build is being built like my first one. 1” Koawool then kast-o-lite, ect. I do want to try and keep the flame swirling if at all possible. I rather not it boast directly on whatever I put in the forge. I’m not forgewelding(yet) so I’m not after welding temps.
