I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Here's my gas forge build its made of a 40 dollar air compressor tank. Has two mikey style burners which the kind folks on here have help me improve, and 2 inches of kaowool with rigidzer and refactory. Its inside deminsions are 18 in length 7 inchs wide and tall. I had to order some more refractory and will be finishing shortly.

I think I get what your saying bevel out the flare to make a better flare opposed  to the straight shot. There's a machinist near me that i can get to use a lathe and get the inside bevel a bit and i think ill hit him up. I think if i try it won't turn out even. Thanks for the advice.

here is my BIG one, made from a cut in half 20 gallon propane tank. I only use it for large damascus billets and cable. too much of a gas hog for anything else... BUT it will get up to >2400 F that's where my thermometer tops out at...

I didn't think Australia even knew about things like grass and rain. LOL

I thought it was just the land of NOPEs that try to kill ya!

 

Is that a giant steel plate for a door? it looks like it would be quite a heat-sink. I have firebricks painted with the leftover ITC-100 water after coating the interior of my forge, they reflect the heat pretty good.

I am not discussing the flare of a flame retention nozzle; why would anyone want to give it a knife edge? I am thinking of the forward edges of your burner's air openings.
