I Forge Iron

Large forge for sheet metal.


Recommended Posts

So got a job that will involve heating a 48x48 “

piece of 16 gauge sheet metal up. 
Need to build a temporary type forge for this. 
my first thought is to build a large square top and mount a bunch of burners on it and just stack brick for sides and bottom. Only going to be used 1-2 (hopefully more) times. 
don’t want to over complicate it. Only need to get the sheet metal hot enough to inflate it. 
any thoughts  on a burner count?

im thinking 1 every square foot- 25 or so??

You need to lay ceramic fiber under the sheet, and build an insulated lid over the sheet, to hold your burners. Then install a whole lot of smaller burners, to do this job. Furthermore, you will want to use "T" burners specifically for this task.
