  1. Hey Frosty, I had one more question. So I decided obviously I am going to change to a MiG tip, I do not know how I am going to attach that to my burner though. Is the MiG tip able to thread into a pipe coupling or do I need to drill and tap a hole? Which is the best way to attach it?
  2. I have been doing some more research, Could the problem possibly be fixed by just changing my orifice to a smaller Mig tip? Maybe like a .035 " tip? It is currently a 1/16" hole.
  3. Mikey, I have not yet tried that but I will as soon as I get to my shop. Will that not affect the flow of propane through the burner?
  4. Hi Frosty, Thank you so much for your reply. I now understand how much of a mistake it was for me to make such a big forge. Since I have already been through so much trouble of getting that forge going, I would like to keep the same shell. Now talking about the burners, aligning the burners to one side of the forge instead of on top in my mind would not allow enough heat to get on whatever I am forging because the main heat would be on the side of the burner and not the floor? Second, since we have stablished the problem of getting the correct flame is the back pressure, would welding so
  5. I am so sorry I actually miss typed I just realized. I actually drilled with a 1/16" not 1/6.
  6. No, the jet for the burner is a pipe plug that I have drilled with a 1/6" bit. The quarter inch is the pipe size of the plug, and the other pipes that are inside of the top bell coupling. The pressure that I usually set it on when I fire it up is 10 psi. The reason I switched to a smaller pipe was in hopes of allowing a more venturi effect for more airflow.
  7. I tried it with half inch pipe all the way and it wasn't working which led me to change to quarter inch in hopes to allow more air flow. So I still have no clue what the problem is
  8. Hey everyone, thank you so much for responding. After looking into everything ya'll have told me I have a few more questions. I understand what you are saying Mikey about the forge possibly having too many burners, but that then leads me to the question why is it still not working when I only run one of the burners? Now, if it is because the burner is too small, would the solution to increase the burner be increasing the nipple size of the burner? And yes, I will absolutely deal with the ceramic fiber hazard, would the best thing for that be to coat it with refractory concrete??
  9. Hello everyone, I have no idea if I am in the correct forum for this or not because this is my first time, but I picked what I thought was closest. I have recently built a 3 burner propane forge 8"X12"X24" long and I am having a bit of a problem. Long story short, I have diagnosed the problem and found out that the problem I am having is a build up of pressure inside where my burners are and no where for that pressure to go and in return I am not getting the Correct ionizing flame I need. Don't get me wrong, I am no expert by any means, the way I found this out is because if I blow throu
