Hey, I need help with this project. I need a heavy all metallic through kind of staff(bang) to use for wushu training at my school and want to make a gold banded cudgel(ruyi jingu bang) that instead of bands/rings of gold on each end of the pole, I want to weld/inlay some type of thick, somewhat engraved, patterned copper/brass/gold plating over the steel/iron that looks like popped out, shining luck clouds that are wrapped around a clean, straight and solid blackened metal pole. The middle is bare, but as you go to one of each end, it starts with sparse clouds that show the pole underneath, but as you get closer to the ends the clouds become much compact and completely envelop the tips. I need help on how I can get this result(look below at images I cropped). please and thanks.
How would yall insulate this forge? 1 or 2 x 3/4" burners? •12"L x 6"W x 6"T inside finished demensions • sliding front door (up and down) fire brick for pass threw on back •covered in 1/8" mild steel with 1/4" wrap around mild steel for sliding work into and out of forge and storage on side • expanded metal shelf underneath • hanging rack on one side for tools This is my first forge and there are so many different ways to insulate it I wanted to know how yall would do it? I' looking to be able to get to forge welding temps for damascus work one day. Also wanting to build one sword for myself (hints the pass threw). What also like this to consume the least amount of propane as possible. What are your suggestions on things I should change or things I should add I have roughly a $200 budget which can be fudge to little bit not including the burners or the 1/8" or 1/4" steel for the outside. So $200 for insulation purposes. Please excuse my hands scratch on the drawings (there's a reason I don't write papers for a living).
