  1. Do you use a spark arrestor of some kind on your chimney? Does the hat alone seem to do the trick? My chimney will be within ten feet of two trees, neither of which are on my side of the property line. I like my neighbor, so I ask.
  2. I've been thinking quite a bit about ways to minimize exposure to coal smoke. Even when my chimney is working well, the smoke sometimes will still linger around in a cloud (the forge is outdoors), resulting in me breathing some in. I'd also rather NOT have a nasty cloud in the backyard, given the choice. Here's my idea, as I imagine it working in a perfect world: Since my chimney is just a side draft from a tall piece of stovepipe, I could cut out a section and make a small hinged door somewhere in the middle of the chimney, and place a grate inside the pipe. Then, before lighting the coa
  3. Ok so I built a shop recently for blacksmithing. I needed to make a chimney set up so I took an old water pressure tank and used it as the hood. I have 6" chimney single wall going above the roof. The hood opening is 13" tall and about 14" wide. The hood is also resting on the forge. Anyway when I tried using it smoke did go up the chimney but some would puff out towards the top of the hood. The smoke buildup is not good and hard on my lungs. So my question is what am I doing wrong here? I did a little reading on threads and other websites about the chimney needing to be at least 10" or the ho
  4. Hi guys, I live in Calgary and am about to move into a new house why an awesome garage, but it brings up a few questions. First, I am thinking of building a hood to gather the combusted gasses from both a charcoal brake drum forge and a propane forge. The guy at a bbq shop is suggesting an 8" double walled chimney. The good thing is that it will be pretty close to code (wall penetration and 6 ft above the gutter, about the same height as the peak). He says that because I am not burning wood in a direct vent system a hood is ok. However, on this forum people keep saying 8" m
  5. Hi. I am at the point in setting up my forge building where I can now fit the chimney. I have 2 meters of 250mm ducting + a cap and am trying to decide the optimum length and fitting. I want to stick with the 1meter section because it will be much less prone to damage in the very high winds I get with my forge overlooking the sea. What is the minimum effective length that will still effectively draw smoke away? I have read a lot of contradictory advice about length and wonder what the consensus was. I also wonder if anyone had used the same kind of hardware i have and if so did you brace the d
  6. So I use a brake drum forge out in the open, you can see the picture attached (embedding doesn't work). I also believe I use really cheap coal, $12 for 50lb bag. I heard that cheap coal has a lot of sulfur and so can cause metal fume fever symptoms. When I begin to coke it it caused VERY dark green fumes. Well I forged for about two hours today which is more than before and sure enough I have a sore throat. I feel like I probably breathed a good amount of smoke in because it just goes wherever it wants since I have no chimney. It's not related to zinc as my forge hasn't changed in months and a
  7. Greetings, I have been lurking on this site for several months and am hoping for some solid advice. I am considering building a small smithy in my back yard which will be essentially a shed (for tools) and a large extended roof for my smithy. I currently have a propane forge but want to build a coal or coke forge. I am wondering though, will a side-draft chimney that is open on 3 sides, still draw when used in essentially an open environment. Thanks JB
  8. So I'm building my first coal forge, it will be outside, essentially itl be just a table with a brake drum set into it. I am in a residential area so minimal/no smoke production would be great, so I'm just wondering is, will a chimney reduce the amount of smoke in an outdoor forge? Would it have a use at all? Thanks
  9. Hey Folks, I´d like to ask for your advise on a project I want to start soon. My shop is half oudoors so I have a roof over the head but literally no walls. Until now I have always had my forge standing just free and hoped for good wind... But as you can imagine I take quite a lot smoke and dust and I mustn´t damage my body with stuff like that at my age. So I want to install a smoke hood over my forge. The only problem is that I only have a very limited budget of about 180$. So I guess I have to take a DIY-solution. After some research and discussions with some fellow blacksmiths I came to
