  2. Some day I would like to build a plywood shelf and install a electric blower. For now it's a run what you brung kinda forge. All in all its a big step up from my trashcan forge. I built it up from a ladder a railing and a oil tank. Thoughts and criticism are welcome.
  3. Hi All, I'm setting up a coke forge in a derelict outbuilding at home near Bath... I would really like to get it right as it's costing me a small fortune in building work, electricals, etc.! Just asking for a bit of advice if possible as I've only ever worked in one other forge. So - I'm wondering if there are any friendly folk out there in the South West that wouldn't mind showing me their place and / or spending 15 minutes with me? It would be great to meet some fellow smiths too anyway. I've got very little experience, but I love working with metal and so I'm just going for it. I've got quite a small area allocated and the ceiling is only 7" but I do have the luxury of an upper storey that I could knock up into which I'm thinking I might well have to... Sorry - bit of an open question - I'll be doing some layout sketches tomorrow which will probably help. Thanks in advance! Debbie
  4. Hello I was just recently playing around we my new brake drum forge (homemade) and I suddenly saw blue fire coming from the middle what caused this?
  5. Hello everyone, I am new on here but have been visiting the sight for several week researching gas forges. I have finally decided to dive in and build my own. The forge I plane to build is going to 8” inner diameter and about 16” long. It is going to be made from an old air compressor tank with 2 or 3 inches of durablanket and sealed with a cast able refractory. I am planning to heat the forge with a single 1” “t-rex” style burner that I am currently in the middle of building. My question is, will a single one inch burner be enough to get the forge to welding heat or would two ¾” burners be a better option. I will post pictures as the build progresses, but it will most likely be after Christmas. In order to get my wife to agree to let me buy the refractory I told her it was my Christmas present and she is refusing to let me have it until then. Lol. We have only been married 6 months and life is good!!! PS: I found my 2,300 degree 1" thick durablanket for $1 per squar foot from Porter-Warner Industries. They also have 3,000 degree castable for $23 for a 55 pound bag.
