  1. Hi everyone, Newbie here in Portland, Oregon. I just finished building my first forge and need some advice with tuning my Frosty T-burner. Here are the specs: Forge: Wayne Coe-style Freon forge, built exact to his instructions -- 1-2" Inswool, Kast-O-Lite refractory, Plistix Burner: Frosty T-burner, 3/4" nipple, 0.035 Tweco MIG contact tip, no flare (tried to build one into the refractory, but my guess is it's probably a little too wide) Other stuff: 1/4-turn ball valve at the burner, 3/8" propane hose, 0-30psi regulator The pics are taken with about 5psi of pressure. The burner nipple is situated so that it's barely inside the tank (and prob. 1.5" deep to the refractory). I was hoping I could get some advice about the flame -- shape, color, etc.. Please forgive my ignorance. I'm assuming I need to trim back the MIG tip a little -- it seems like that's the first recommendation from most of the posts I've read -- but I wanted to check with the gurus first before I went and did that. Forgive me if the pictures aren't helpful, or if others would be better. I'm happy to retake if necessary. Many thanks in advance, Erik
  2. Need some help troubleshooting. The burner I made is basically a carbon copy of this one here. I used a .035” welding tip, and from the brass I connected a 10ft propane hose rated for home use I believe, and from there I have a hose to connect to my 5 gallon propane tank. Is this a pressure issue? Is my regulator not giving enough propane or is this an air intake issue? It sputters and doesn’t roar like the others I’ve seen. IMG_0604.MOV IMG_0605.MOV
  3. I was given this little tank and am interested in possibly trying to use it to make a small propane forge. It is about 11.5" long and 7.5" diameter. There's already a port about 2" from one end that a burner could probably be easily inserted into. I want to try to use it mainly to make small pw billets for jewelry/decorational pieces... and if I get the nerves, maybe even a small knife in the not-too-far future. And maybe even other non pw small projects. Now the questions...lol: 1. Would 1" of kaowool be sufficient? that would leave me about a 5" diameter space... the 2" I see recommended most places would only leave about 3" diameter opening... which would you guys recommend? (I already have the kaowool in both thicknesses, given to me by some fellows who insulate boilers and gas turbines) 2. I'm leaning toward a Frosty T-burner. Would a 3/4" be too much? If so, what size/type would ya'll recommend? 3. If I make the end that has the port (It's where that black block is attached) the back, would that be an ok place to insert the burner, or should I cut a new hole more centered? Any other thoughts, suggestions or ideas will be welcomed.
