  1. Could have just cut the end off a Propane bottle. They are about the same diameter as a 5 gallon bucket.
  2. And, Alan, that at the end of the day his back was aching.
  3. A smart guy once told me to use what you have when building from scrap. It’s almost always true. But not in this case Would you use a 1,000 # Propane tank to build a knife forge just because you had it?
  4. If you build a forge that large not only will it use a lot more fuel, it will cost a lot more to build. You should be able to pick up an old 20# Propane tank for free, Four inches is over kill.

  6. Do not try to use a squirrel cage fan for a Ribbon Burner. You need a blower that will develop pressure. I suggest: Https://www.amazon.com/Sunlar-Electric-Blacksmith-Centrifugal-Barbecues/dp/B071NQDNRK/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1UKUQNDVS7OFY&keywords=blacksmith+blower+110v&qid=1563467670&s=gateway&sprefix=blacksmith+b%2Caps%2C235&sr=8-1
  7. I too would suggest that you use a single Freon tank length. You will be able to get a more even heat and burn less fuel. If you are heating more than about 6" you are using excessive fuel, building more scale thus effecting the grain growth . A blown Ribbon Burner will also use less fuel and give a more even heat. I use a pyrometer and weld damascus billets with about 1# of pressure and no flux.

  8. Check out the video on the grinders page then look at the DVDs page for getting the DVD at www.WayneCoeArtistBlacksmith.com. Let me know if I can help you.

  10. Check out the Build a Gas Forge and the Ribbon Burner attachments on the Forge Supplies page at www.WayneCoeArtistBlacksmith.com. Let me know if I can help you. If you can't weld it you can use 1/4 20 nuts and bolts for the hinges and can cut and bend the burner holder and attach it with nuts and bolts. Do a google search for "Frosty's T burner. much cheaper , easy to build and a good burner. Let me know if I can help you.
  11. Always unplug all digital equipment when not in use. I unplug the grinders (all have VFDs+), my Miller Mig welder and my pyrometer. As sure as you don't lightning will strike.
  12. Thanks Jeremy, actually 5 # of Kast-0-Lite is $24.00 shipped. Let me know if I can help you.
  13. Alan, I bought my Jonsered at Tractor Supply in Jamestown, Tn. a couple of years ago.
  14. You will be $$$$ ahead if you will use a proven product. Not only will you get a better product that will probably last longer you will have a more efficient forge.

  15. Once the casting has cured and it is cast to the walls it should not be a problem.
