Just wanted to share a picture of my new gas forge I built for doing demonstrations at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. I decided having a gasser and a coal forge side by side would allow me to do a few more complicated things, and have things ready to go ala-Julia Chid. We sell swords, knives and other impliments of destruction and people are always curious as to how they're made so I figured having pieces in various stages ready to be worked on might make my half hour shows flow a bit better. I do three of them a day. As for the forge it's essentially two inches of fiber wool, a layer of vesuvius 300, a few more inches of wool, capped off with more refractory and encased in abbey stone. The burner is a 10x2 refractory ribbon being fed from the bottom. I still have a front gate and hood yet to install. Anyway, here's a pic! J I have a few more pictures of the burner build itself that I'll try to upload if my phone decides to work like it's supposed. In the meantime, let me know what you think. Thanks!
