intrex Posted August 22, 2016 Share Posted August 22, 2016 Hey Everyone, I have a coal burning rivet forge and a clam shell (with hinged walls) 2 burner gas forge. I am not sure how many hours I get out of a 40lb tank but it can't be more than 8 hours at the most. After filling up my 40lb tank and a regular 20lb tanks I was thinking that I would use propane much more often if my forge was more efficient. Over the last few years the majority of the forging that I do is on regular shaped stock 1" or under in thickness stock. For the vast majority of what I do a small single burner forge would be fine and I have the 2 burner if I need it. I am looking at getting something like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Atlas-Mini-Forge-propane-knifemaking-forge-w-30K-BTU-burner-and-regulator-/112007645631?_trksid=p2352135.m2548.l4275 size to be my new primary propane forge. Do you all have any recommendations for mini forges of this size? If possible I would want one that I could easily replace the fire brick in. I also don't want something with wool in it that is going to require a lot of maintenance. I am decent with a Mig and could build one myself but am inclined to buy one at the 100-200 price range.
