I Forge Iron

my first work

Recommended Posts

Nice spike knife....that was also my first project. Why a new forge? Are you now able to get white hot? I can't seem to get past bright orange heat yet.....burners need more tweaking methinks!

I made the new forge because the other one was not working like i thought it should. For one, my burner was right in the middle of the forge. Also, after adding the kaowool, I only had a few inches wide in the forge. My new one is bigger and I positioned the burner at the top to roll the flame.

I have not reached white hot yet, but my regulator got stuck. I got to get another one Monday. I am also going to make a coal forge in the next few weeks ....I hope

Thanks for the comments

do you have any coating on that ceramic blanket in the forge? if not buy itc100 and apply it ASAP. ceramic insulation(kaowool, inswool) is a respiratory hazard when hot, plus the flames will ruin it in no time flat.

I don't have a coating on the blanket. I wear a mask, because I was told about the respirtory hazard. I was also told the fire wouldn't hurt the kaowool. If this is not the case I will get some coating. Any leads on where to buy it?
