I Forge Iron

Gas forge parts and accessories


Recommended Posts

OK, I have been looking around the web for forge making supplies. Zoeller Forge is closed for awhile due to medical issues and Ellis custom knife works is out due to severe shipping problems (Took 5 months for my last order). So where can I find suppliers that carry items to build forges such as refractory, gas fittings (hoses, gauges ext...) Prefer places that let you order online via Credit card or PayPal but will work with others. Basically a one stop shop for all my forging needs (if any exist) but will go with multiple vendors is necessary. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Found a couple places that have all the plumbing supplies needed to make a burner except for the Stainless steel flare.
http://www.mrsupply.com/ has everything to make propane burner.
http://www.drillspot.com/products/670441/anvil_international_inc_0310067202_wye has the Wye connector to make a burner similar to a burner I saw on another web site.

Took forever to dig the parts out that I will need but they are there.

Hi Temp and Ceramicfiber online sell in large quantities only it seems. To much for the small projects I am working at. Maybe in the future when I have more money at my disposal (if that ever happens).

Regarding Ellis, when I purchased my stuff summer/fall of last year I had decent shipping times. Don't know if yours was before (and things are resolved now) or after.

Glen, shipping depends a lot on if you are crossing international borders and as you don't list a location it makes it very hard to make good suggestions; many of the ones made are fine for the USA but not so great for South Africa or Australia, and IFI has quite a few participants from those areas---don't you think that telling us your general location would be a good idea?

I live in Hiddenite, North Carolina. Sorry but forgot to mention that. Used to profile showing where I am from. Thanks for all the input guys.

Most of the materials used to make a Burner are black pipe fittings and can be found at some local hardware stores or heating suppliers,furnace suppliers, plumbing (hotwater) places that deal with boilers. Black pipe is used in Canada for natural and propane gases and are approved for that,also black pipe is threaded and easy to fit together but must be used in conjuction with approved pipe dope. the dope is responsible for sealing the pipe from leaking.PIPE DOPE Not to be confused with putting in your pipe and smoking! (its too hard to light) And don't use the Dope working wiffya, he never works anyway? Good luck! hope this " dope" works for you and have fun!
