I Forge Iron

1-1/2" Venturi Burner too large?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, long time lurker,


I've been intent on building a forge for the past few years, but could never justify the cost.  My wife, being the amazing woman that she is, bought me more or less all of the supplies I need to get this project off the ground for Christmas.


She based everything off of this video, so those are the materials I have:

It is not too large for a small furnace, but I think it is over kill for a normal size forge.  Read up and you will notice 3/4" is a common size.  Welcome to the forum


I've seen pretty much everywhere that one or two 3/4" is standard for that size forge (which I figure is about 550 cubic inches), but as long as a burner double that diameter will work then I'll be happy.  Would I be ripping through the fuel or have a hard time controlling temps with one that size?
