    Burner questions

    I have now changed out to the 4 inch tube and fired up again. Please comment on what you see. I am thinking of changing to put the burner on top. I want to build a frame with angle iron to hold the bricks in place. 20200112_163912.mp4

    Burner questions

    hi Yes i have been adjusting the air intake and also the pressure, between the 2 videos i only adjusted the pressure. The injector was bought as a Propane model and i plan on pulling the nozzle out further, the good thing with the bricks is that i can try it with the burner on the top. I plan on another attempt on Sunday so will have more details then. thanks all for the support Wayne it posted twice

    HI Mikey To show the best detail what would you recommend when talking the video. I plan on taking the video at night. for the exhaust there is no smoke of any sort that I could see.

    Burner questions

    I’ve not made the changes yet still need to get the fire bricks to make the forge itself, I want to get it all built before making changes as I have read here on the forum that the burners behave differently in the forge and out. I currently have a 9” mixing tub and a 1/2” to 1” reducer to test with and of course the pressure adjustment.

    Burner questions

    Hi all I have now been able to connect up my burner and I have also changed the length of the burner tube to 4" and the reducer is now 1/2 to 3/4. It produces a blue green flame, can you give some advice on what I am looking for in the flame Cheers Wayne 20191230_155937.mp4

    Burner questions

    Hi mike sorry if if this is a stupid question but what do you mean by flame retention nozzle, is this the brass nozzle in the burner that passes the fuel into the choke or the flare at the end of the black nipple. Would you recommend another size nozzle if this is the part you are referring to. The black pipe is 9” irondragon I will change this out for a fixed connection then as I want to be as safe as possible, thanks for the warning.

    Burner questions

    Hi yes it is a 1/2 inch burner as stock I have linked to it below. What makes you think it will be weak? Do you think a different injector nozzle will be needed. i have to wait until the new year to buy the hoses etc before I can fire it up http://amalcarb.co.uk/amal-gas-injectors/propane-injectors/1-2-injector-propane-gas-long-venturi.html i have followed Tim Gunn instructions in this post I think I need to get a different nozzle

    Burner questions

    I meant to add some pictures of my burner setup, any recommendations are welcome. I am using a quick release for the hose to burner connection. I think I might need to redo my joints once I check on the tape I used. Thanks for the advice frosty I plan on mounting the burner on the side of a pile of insulating bricks forge
  13. Hi all i am looking for information / advice on my burner. the flare is 1/2” to1” and still has the threads in it, is it best to remove the threads. is it best for safety to use a armoured hose from the propane tank to my burner. i remember reading in one thread that should no use thread sealant, is that only on the black pipe or at all? thanks for your help
  14. I think I will place the burner on the side at a 30degree angle facing backwards. I have a 9inch long 1/2 inch black nipple with a 1/2 inch to 1inch adapter on the end to flare the flame. My question now is do I place the flare all the way into the chamber. cheers wayne
  15. Hi All I just wanted to say Hi I am new on here and looking to set up a forge using a Amal burner, fire brick base and insulating brick sides and roof. One question I have is whether I place the Burner on the side of on top, I have seen both mentioned on here and would like to have the thoughts of experienced Blacksmiths. I have never done any Blacksmith work so complete beginner, I am an electrical engineer by training but worked on machine maintenance so have had a lot of greasy days it would be good to know if there is anybody in the local area to chat to and glean some knowledge off of. that's all for now Wayne
