Hi all! I quickly progressed from coal to gas in a matter of trying coal once. we dont agree. Anyrate. Disclaimer: I am 99% self taught so..I followed the plans laid out by a youtuber i made a gas forge and burners out of an old propane tank and some pipe. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiSgR-IJMyk) I am quite proud of myself i learned how to stick weld also. After a couple of small projects (simple tons, knife and Kukhri) im getting more comfortable really cranking the heat. I have since then got a fire brick to go inside and i stack on the backside of the forge. I am running a 30 psi regulator. Being said when i light the forge i steadly increase the gas, when i hear popping i increase it more. At one point just recently i was unable to increase my gas flow and i kept hearing the popping. A couple questions: What do i need to do to stop this? get a higher regulator? I assume my forge was too hot? I also assume if i continue to let the popping happen that is bad? Thanks in advance.
Hello all, I'm looking at buying my first forge this week after having taken my first class and absolutely loving it. I've been trying to look into the NC Knifemakers Forge over the Whisper Momma based on some complaints I've seen on the Whisper Momma not getting to forge welding temperature very easily. Does anyone have any experience with this forge? I can't find any previous threads talking about this one. If you have any thoughts let me know! (I'm looking to buy rather than build because I've been buying materials for a few weeks and loved my first forging session and would like to get started. I have no welding experience and I feel like it would take quite a while to build my own. Therefore I've just been trying to find what I can best get for my money that isn't going to be a gas hog or cheap firebrick forge like a diamondback.) Thanks!
Hey. im trying to set up a gas forge and have begun making burners. The burner's main pipe has an inner diameter of 1" the gas tank has an outer diameter of 102 cm while ive measured the inside room to be 14 cm square in the opening on each end with a depth of 54 cm i think this translate to the inside being 645.15 cubic inches. will 2 burners be overkill or sufficient for this size of forge ? also how much will the length of the main pipe affect the burn? and how necessary is the nozzle at the end ? im completely new at this so all feedback is appriciated :) thanks in advance
ok so as title says math help i have a 8.75 outside diam. pipe .25 wall thickness so 8.25 inside 24 inches long if i put 2inches of kaowool it should come out to 320 Cubic inches so a single t burn should work or i was considering a 2inc wide 12 inch ling ribbon burn to spread the heat around am i on track math wise or am i off my rocker
