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
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
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 recomm
