kubiack Posted October 4, 2011 Share Posted October 4, 2011 I am about to start construction on a side blast forge. I do most of my work in a gas forge but want a solid fuel forge for large and awkward shaped pieces. I will also be doing forge welding in it. I’m in a residential neighborhood and will be using charcoal for fuel. I would like to use a sacrificial stainless steel pipe for the tuyere instead of building it water cooled. What kind of life can I expect from the pipe with my stated use? If it is just going to burn up at welding temperatures I will build it water cooled. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Something like Irnsrgn posted here, http://www.iforgeiro...r-cooled-forge/ post 14, but without the butterfly valve. I will be using a hand crank blower instead. Irnsrgn how has the stainless pipe held up in your demo forge? Thanks, Brandon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
