Psi Posted August 25, 2018 Share Posted August 25, 2018 I took into account a lot of the feedback and post on my previous topic and am revisiting to get a few things clarified before I go ahead. 1. Took the advice and found a plan that I like over at Hybridburner's page for a box style forge but with arched ceilings. The one thing I was curious about was that it only has one burner and has a inner volume of about 380 inches or so. I'm going to be making something very similar to the older version of the 3/4" T-Rex, with the screw choke instead of slide, as I just prefer it. I do know it is fussier, but its something I just rather. The question I have was the simple one of will one burner be enough? I remember seeing that even extremely efficient setups can do 300-350, but am worried about the ability at that size, and even more so when I know I may be making it a bit longer. Should I consider going to two, maybe making them smaller to compensate? 2. I will be using 2x 1" Layers of Wool, with rigidizer, 3/8-1/2" layer of Kast-O-Lite, and a layer or two of ITC-100 / HYB-UV / Metrikote. I was lucky enough to get some wool free, but it is not what I was looking for. Its 2300 degree grade. Is it safe to use? I know that my forge will get past that temp, and I know that there is a formula which could do all the work to tell me the exact temps, but I am neither knowing of that formula, or good enough at math to work through it. The main thing I need to know is if I can safely use it, or if I should look into buying some 2600 degree one. Once more, thanks a ton for all the comments and help that I got, and look forwards to being able to post my work soon-ish. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
