  1. I am doing a lot of research on different types of gas forges and burners in hopes of coming up with the most efficient design in terms of fuel economy to heat out put. My plan is to make a blown gas ribbon forge first then build a Recuperative forge in the future. I am currently cobbling together pieces and parts to build my first forge. The shell is an old piece of 14" pipe with 1 /4 inch wall. It's about 20" long. I plan on a double 2" wrap of insulwool, rigidized and coated with one of Frosty's or Mr. Coe's ir coatings.

I've not got it on a scale yet but I can say, I shouldn't pick it up myself... Any ideas? Thank You in advance for your help!

I make metal roses, and I want to know more about when we first see them in history, if they mean anything, and their general construction, and if it differed from place to place in the same era, et cetera. Does anyone know of any books, sources, or research material that can provide me with more information?
