For a burner...

Recommended Posts

Is it bad to use a weed burner? If this was covered elsewhere, I will find that place :) (couldn't find it but I might've missed it)

When I googled: weed burner site:iforgeiron.com   I got 271 hits    (As is explained in "Read This First"  the native search function is not ver good.  using your browsers search function with site:iforgeiron.com as a search term works much better. )

And the short answer is NO!  They are much too oxidising to make a good burner.

They're good for burning weeds, flame decorating lumber, burning out investment molds and glazing raku pottery. No good in a forge, though I've used the hoses.
