I Forge Iron

It’s Finally Burning - a first build story (photo heavy)


Recommended Posts

Well I've burned it long enough that I think the Calcite has burned out.  Here's a couple links to videos of it burning last night.. Let me ask:  How's my (Dragon's) Breath?

My Dragon's Breath at 1 PSI

My Dragon's Breath at 20 PSI

Sorry about the focus, but you'll get the idea.  After all, I was filming with a phone.

the English language.

I know this was covered already but "fora" is Latin and except for my etiological nudge my only exposure to Latin and Greek are from Paleontology books.

is an affectation

An affectation John? Is that what you call using words with more than two syllables on a blacksmithing forum? It's good to know the real thing though, sure beats being misinforumed.

careful I got moderated once when I mad a typo posting something similar!

Think that's moderation Thomas? Try being moderated by a birch. . . No, don't do that, just take my word for it instead. 

The forge looks good, 1 psi has little dragon's breath and 20 psi isn't blowing 3' out the doors. Is the video slowed down? There seems to be a louder faster beginning and ending couple seconds.

Yes, I thought using the slo-mo feature on my phone would give a better idea of what is happening.

Part of what's happening is how fast the flames are leaving the forge, distance and speed are what we're looking for. If a video is distorted a couple stills are usually as good. I would've been pretty excited thinking flames that slow were coming from a 3/4" T.

Not griping it still looks darned good, I just wanted a little clarification.

What you really need Thomas are enough brains you can afford to lose some. I have the scars to prove it.
