Pipe for ribbon burner assembly.

Recommended Posts

I’m having trouble locating black iron pipe in anything greater that 1”. Will galvanized pipe work for the plumbing from my ribbon burner to my blower or do I need to keep searching? Or will 1” Black pipe be sufficient? My forge is going to be a propane tank job following wayne’s plans. 

Thanks

Galvanized will be fine to use anywhere it's going to be cool enough to touch. As will black iron, though 1" may be rather small, depending on the size of the burner and the pressure available from the blower.

Have you checked a plumbing supply place?---NOT a big box store.  Also ask about a "Black pipe nipple" a term for a short length of black iron pipe.

I note that Ferguson Plumbing supply, Hillsboro OR,  carries 2" black pipe nipples in various lengths.  Took me at least a minute to find from here on the NM/Mexico border...

I looked at furgeson but it seemed like the prices were higher than I expected($25 for a 2” nipple). I also checked my big box stores. I just wanted to make sure I was looking for the correct thing. Seems a little excessive if I have to spend upwards of $100 just in pipe for a propane tank forge.

I get mine at the ReStore for a couple of dollars.  I check every time I go and when they have them cheap I pick them up on spec...

However it seems that the question is not about finding them; but about finding them cheap.

I guess it was kind of both. Online I was able to find them at furgeson. No big box stores, and I wasn’t 100% sure I was actually looking for the correct thing. I guess I should have phrased my question better and not when I was running on a couple hours of sleep. :)
