  1. Ok so, trying to get into the apparently less frustrating world of gas burning forges (I'm coming from a good bit of working with coal in a brakedrum). Here is my issue, I don't have enough money. I bought a Bernzomatic TS4000 a while back for some soldering I had to do. Now, for the time it will take me to save up for the materials for a 2 burner propane forge I decided to go with the 2 brick forge using the TS4000 as my heat source. My issue is with the torch, it's not burning the way it used to. When it was new it burned all very close to the tip with a bright(ish) blue flame and an audible woosh (I'll not call it a roar). However now there is a large, low pressure plume of gas around the central burn, less roar and WAY less heat. Also, when I put it in the burner hole in the brick, it freaks out and starts sputtering and having all sorts of issues, and theres a yellow flame in the forge itself. Based on what I know of burners (not much) it's a gas/air mix issue and theres not enough air. Does anyone know if this can be fixed/adjusted? Should I just scrap it until I get a decent forge going? Anyone got some kaowool burning a hole in thier pocket? (kind of a pun) Really appreciate your input.
  2. Ok, so me and my parter have made a few knives and are happy with our results so we think we're ready to move onto forge welding and making some demascus. I've got a pretty simple design in my head. I have an old propane tank I can cut the bottom and top out of. Going to cut a hole it, shove a weed burner in it ,fill it with a firebrick/ refractory cement mixture up to the lip and coat the outside with kaowool. I don't like doing things twice so I'd like to do it right and I've heard that most fluxes can tear through basically anything pretty quickly so I've done some research on materials I can line the inside with to protect it. Mostly what I've heard is there's nothing to do accept touch up the cement periodically, but I recently ran into a product from a company called homesaver that's used to line fireplaces. It's called "Flue goo" and I've heard a few smiths say it's suppose to be very resistant to flux. It's about $30 a gallon so I'd like to know if anyone has any experience with it and if so is it worth it? If not is there any other products you suggest that would protect the inside of my forge?
  3. I'm looking into building a forge, is it possible to build a forge using a tuyere, and fire brick as the firepot? Or do I need the cast parts?
