I bought this forge one year ago. It is my first one. It has a clinker breaker, as seen in the photo. I've been using the forge, but i never use the clinker breaker. Now i am wondering if it blocks too much air and causes a cold spot in the middle of the fire pit? I also notice that sometimes coal just falls straight through the gaps. Should i be using the clinker breaker? Or is it minimizing air flow and hence heat? I would like to get more heat and spin the blower less. Thank you
I recently bought a coal forge that had the blower body acting as the tuyere. I also bought a forge blower because the one that came with the pan was very old and cracked so now I have to make a new tuyere or chop up the blower case. The clinker breaker and air grate was missing so I had to by a clinker breaker off of Centaur Forge now all that's left to do is cut a hole in some 1/4in plate steel for the clinker breaker. What I need to now is should I make the hole oval or round? Also how much of a gap should I leave around the clinker breaker? I'm using coal about the size of your thumbnail. the clinker breaker is 2 1/2in long by 1 1/2in deep and 2in wide. Thanks for you time also happy late Easter! Nick O
