  1. Hi everyone, Newbie here in Portland, Oregon. I just finished building my first forge and need some advice with tuning my Frosty T-burner. Here are the specs: Forge: Wayne Coe-style Freon forge, built exact to his instructions -- 1-2" Inswool, Kast-O-Lite refractory, Plistix Burner: Frosty T-burner, 3/4" nipple, 0.035 Tweco MIG contact tip, no flare (tried to build one into the refractory, but my guess is it's probably a little too wide) Other stuff: 1/4-turn ball valve at the burner, 3/8" propane hose, 0-30psi regulator The pics are taken with about 5psi of pressure. The burner nipple is situated so that it's barely inside the tank (and prob. 1.5" deep to the refractory). I was hoping I could get some advice about the flame -- shape, color, etc.. Please forgive my ignorance. I'm assuming I need to trim back the MIG tip a little -- it seems like that's the first recommendation from most of the posts I've read -- but I wanted to check with the gurus first before I went and did that. Forgive me if the pictures aren't helpful, or if others would be better. I'm happy to retake if necessary. Many thanks in advance, Erik

    Burner Flare

    Hello all, I'm in the process of building a 3/4" Side Arm Burner as designed by Larry Zoeller. I lit it yesterday and it burns ok - better inside the forge than in open air. In open air it needs the burner flare tip. Zoeller's flare calls for a 1 in 12 taper. That is .083" per 1" of length, OR .167" per 2" of length. Now, is that .167" per side? OR .167 total? i.e. assume a 1" pipe, is it 1.167" at flared end? OR is it twice that at 1.333" at flared end? Zoeller's burner flare is 3" long - does the taper extend the full 3"? OR only the last 2 " with a 1" section to fit on burner tube? I know I "should" know the answer, but for some reason it slips me. My plan is to turn a male form on the lathe, then heat a pipe to red, then hammer on form to shape. Now, just how important is that burner flare inside the forge? I read about using the insulation to act as flare, but that's hard to hold to exact taper. Thanks to all for any help and info, Ken H>
