I Forge Iron

Vertical forge body size?

Recommended Posts

I have a horizontal venturi forge, so of course I need to build a vertical blown forge :)  Damascus welding is the purpose for the new one. 
I have a piece of 1/4" wall square tubing, 7 1/4" inside dimension, 14" long.  This would only be able to support a 5" diameter chamber, roughly 12" high.  
I also have a 10 gallon metal milk jug, 14" diameter, 20" high.  This seems like overkill, as I could have a 10" or 12" by 16" or so chamber.
Will the smaller one work?  Should I use the bigger jug?  Or, should I keep looking for something sized in between?
