So, I have been using an Atlas mini forge and I am looking into upgrading to something bigger the only thing is I'm a little worried about breathing ceramic fibers from the lining of most of the forges I have been looking at. The forge I am thinking of getting says that the ceramic lining is factory rigidized vacuum formed ceramic liner. I don't really know what this means. By rigidized does it mean that the lining has been coated and I don't need to worry about breathing ceramic fibers during normal use of the forge? If it helps the forge I am looking at is the Majestic Forge 3 burner knifemaker deluxe. Here is a link to the forge https://www.majesticforge.com/product/3-burner-knifemaker-deluxe/
Hey, new to the forum and this seemed like a good place for my post. I want to make a gas fueled forge most likely using some kind of coffee can or small garbage receptacle and fueled by propane like in most DIY videos. It's a low budget project and im just trying to use what i have. I just wanted to get some input on the liner compound i intend to use on the inside of my forge before i get into putting this together. I have a bag of CGC SHEETROCK BRAND 45 SETTING-TYPE JOINT COMPOUND and was wondering if this would suffice as the liner or would i have to mix it with sand maybe? or just go out and buy something proper? (any way here's the MSDS) https://www.usg.com/content/dam/USG_Marketing_Communications/canada/product_promotional_materials/finished_assets/sheetrock-brand-45-setting-type-joint-compound-msds-en-can.pdf Thanks in Advance, KnifeySpoony
Hey everyone I'm new here. I want to start by saying I've learned a lot already. That being said building the ole first forge and I have not seen a ton of info about combining insulating methods. I was going to try pearlite and refractory to close the cavity in my 22 propane tank. Then an inch fiber blanket soaked in sanite. Once hardened coat with cement. Just for knife making maybe forge welding down the road. Not sure I saw this combo anywhere. Is the pearlite all bad news? I heard it can sag.
Hi all, My next project I want to work on is building a horrizontal forge out of a 55gal metal drum. Let me try to describe: Horrizontal with the 'lids' taken off, metal wall welded halfway to decrease size of forge, half forge/half charcoal maker and evaporator. Able to work on long pieces through 'door' cut into metal wall. Vent pipe on top with blower pipe coming into bottom. Do you think this would work/ any suggestions? What should I line the barrel with to protect it as well as insulate? I've read several threads about linings but I think I'm more confused now after reading them. Trying to remain as low cost as possible
