Eridanus21 Posted April 6, 2021 Share Posted April 6, 2021 Hi all, I am new to blacksmithing this is my first forge. The forge is a propane tank lined with 2 layers of ceramic fiber blanket, 15 lbs refractory, and a layer of metrikote (bought and followed instructions from Wayne's website). I am using firebricks to block of the back port and about 3/4ths of the main port. I am running 2 prebuilt 1" T style burners with a 0-20 psi regulator. This is the description of the burners from ebay - (air choke, 3 way tee with 2 mouth, feed tube is 8" long ,3/4" thread , outer diameter is 1", flame cone on the bottom is 1-15/16"). I would like to try forge welding in the future but can not seem to get the forge up that high, the highest I can get it is low 1900's. I 3D printed cone inserts and casted refractory around them, the cone diameter starts at 1" and ends at 1.5". Typing this out I just realized the burners came with 2" cones on them so maybe this is the problem? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
