So as I mentioned in my introduction, I purchased a Devil Forge DFSW2 forge. I've seen mixed reviews about them online, however, I've also had the opportunity to use one that I borrowed and it seems to work really well (to a newb like me). This, along with the fear of building a burner poorly, led me to find one on Ebay for $179 shipped. A lot of what people were complaining about in the older versions of this forge was that the regulator is for European propane tanks and that the wool needs to be encapsulated. Well, the forge now comes with the EU -> US propane adapter and 250 grams of rigidizer that you have to mix (10:7) with water and paint on to the ceramic wool. The only thing I'm not clear on is if it's still required to have yet another coating over the rigidizer (I've heard mixed answers). Anyway, I figured I'd do an unboxing video of the forge to show what comes in the box and how it's packaged. I'll probably do a video when I have some time (probably this weekend) to paint on the rigidizer. Sorry for the quality, my camcorder was set to the wrong setting. Let me know what you think.
Hi everyone, I'm completely new to blacksmithing/metalwork so I'm sure I'll have many questions over the months/years but my first is regarding the devil forge I recently brought, I'm worried I may be damaging it by the way I'm using it, but being new to this I have no points of reference. Here are three photos the 1st is of the top of my forge after only a few minutes of use (is this sort of charring to be expected?), 2nd the forge in use (does this seem adequate to heat and shape metal with?) and 3rd the pressure my gauge is showing (is this to low? too high?). Could someone please advise if this all looks ok. I thank everyone who take the time to answer me.
