gas forge help


Recommended Posts

they will just want to sell you a new forge ( and any company that will not supply parts for things they make dont get my business )

had a pillar drill from a place here, they had them made in china, wanted a new spring to return the quill ( it was the biggest drill they did and cost over 1500 uk / 2250 US aprox.

after nearly a year of saying it was on order and would be here soon they finally sent me a spring from their smallest drill which was less than 1/4 of the size needed and when i complained they said they had discontinued the drill I had and stop supplying spares the same day they stop selling the drill ( but they keep messing you round for a year and dont tell you this ) and then just send a random part, they actually admitted to this on the phone.


that place will never see any of my money again


maybe with the help of those here you can make a new burner that does not need the valve, look for the T burner made from a mig tip and pipe fittings or any of the others here

Sorry, I should've reread your post before replying. You're going to need to find out what the minimum part they will sell you that will make the repair or buy a new one. Do they have a dealer with a shop? Most welding suppliers will give a person a pretty good deal to keep old failing gas torches out of the end user's shop.


The liability is just too great for the to risk someone rebuilding torches, I don't know of anybody selling less than components.

If it's a Flamefast-manufactured part and they will not sell a diaphragm separately, you are pretty much stuck with having to replace the valve.


If it's a bought-in standard part, you have a chance of bypassing Flamefast.


Got any photos of the offending valve?


And where in the world are you?

flamefast will NOT sell him the valve

dont know if they would repair it if sent to them

 they would probably want to sell another forge ( which they would still not sell parts for when needed )

this makes me think of the value of flamefast forges in relation to disposable items like a cheap cartridge type blowtorch, not worth repairing, allow for that value when they give you a price for a new one and if it is over 50 pounds I would tell them what I think of such items
