I Forge Iron

Forge valve question.


Recommended Posts

I am in the process of building my first forge. I'm just basically kind of feeling my way through it currently. I bought a couple of ball valves and some 1/4 pipe to connect them to the T, well, after I got home and got to looking it doesn't appear that I needed the valves and the extra connectors. I can just take my nipples and connect them directly to the T. The nipples have flair fittings on them that will run the copper pike to my burners. My question is, do I need to have the two extra ball valves or is is safe to run the forge without them? 


I included a pic that has the T with the nipples in it with the extra pipe and ball valves above it.20160122_175709.thumb.jpg.7f9932dbd022be
