I Forge Iron

oil forge safety

Recommended Posts

I switched over to propane back in '93. At the time I could get the 100# tanks filled for $30. Now a fill is 3 times that ! I have been considering switching to waste oil but have this small fear of the danger of a grease fire in the shop. My building is kind of small and crowded and the oil forges I have seen run usually seem to sit in a big puddle! I know I have grease and oil puddled around the hammer but they arent exactly near an ignition source. ( I have dropped some big pieces of hot steel into the hole in the Bradley's frame before, that fire wasnt much fun to put out!) How big of a risk is there in running on oil?
