I Forge Iron

how many sq. inches will a Reid burner heat properly


Recommended Posts

I've got a job comming up that is going to be very repetitive. I'm forging mild steel and some brass pieces that are about 4"x1/4"x3/4" in size and I'm wanting to make a small freon tank gas forge to heat them in. I'm thinking a gas forge will be cheaper with the volume I'm looking to forge. I'm building a Ron Reid burner and I'm thinking one will be enough. But does anybody have a formula for figuring how many burners you'd need for a given area. If this works good I'm thinking about making a big forge for regular forgings maybe a working area of 24"x12"x24". Just depends on how I like the little one.
