Mikey98118 Posted September 10, 2016 Share Posted September 10, 2016 Andy, I am answering your email here, because for some reason I have no response feature (first time for everything) on my end of the email program (I am suffering through a lot of sudden glitches with email today). I encourage you to post your videos and questions to the group, and simply delete your kind words to me in particular. As to what I get from the videos: (1) Judging from the color ranges shown by interior surface incandescence on a forge running with one end wide open, your burner can't be running all that problematically! (2) Do not close that open end before you shove your burner's flame nozzle back within the burner opening at least 1/2", and a full1" would be better; otherwise the the nozzle is likely to melt. Ditto advice for using any high-emissive coatings, before retracting the burner. (3) As best I can tell, you have a nice flame coming out of the burner; as to why it goes white sometimes, I don't have a definite answer having never seen this before, but if I had to bet, my money would be on some kind of gunk in the gas jet; possibly from the gas pipe the jet is mounted on, or even from the fuel hose; you indicated you had not run the forge much, so it may clear itself out without any help. Let other eyes view your videos, because you have nothing to feel self-conscious about in that forge. Don't be surprised when someone suggests that you change the burner's aim so that the flame strikes about the middle of the forge's floor. Yes, you still have some problems to work out, but I think you're doing a lot better with it then you might think; with a little tweaking I predict it's going to end up being a very hot little forge. fussy old doc Frankenburner Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
