Finished up my forge a few days ago. My idea was to create a simple forced air forge that can be broken down, easily serviceable and that can be easily duplicated if needed, and maybe manipulated for different types of materials I may be adding into it. Some things that I was able to do at my place of employment was TIG weld some stainless steel nozzles. Although I'm no expert in welding, I have been allowed full access to weld since apparently I have a steady hand. You will see my first attempts to TIG weld stainless steel below. I hope my photos are self explanatory, but if you do have questions....Please ask. I'll do my best to answer any questions. I also numbered the pictures in order....for some reason the file host does not organize them in order. I'm learning here, so please do not take offense if I can not offer a reasonable explanation.

My son and I are wanting to make a small propane forge (paint bucket sized). Mainly we'll be heat treating steel knives and possibly forging a few odd items. Pattern welding may be fun, but that will come later after some experience and maybe if necessary a bigger forge. I've done all kinds of research, but due to the volume I've got more questions than answers. I have the paint bucket, more ceramic wool than I need, ceramic coating for the wool, a couple IFBs for the bottom. I am wanting to get a regulator and blower and go forced induction as I have heard you have more control and it's more efficient on fuel. However, is that possible/reasonable on a forge this small? I've not seen any paint bucket sized that use forced induction. Recommendations?
In my previous post I learned that my oddball burners probably would not get hot enough for a forge so now I am wondering what the cheapest burner design that runs on propane is. My forge is 28"x8"x8", and I would also like to know how many burners I should have in my new forges construction.
