  1. I don't sell burners or forges. They are simple enough to build and just as safe as any pre-built forge, if you follow the instructions on the attachments on my Forge Supplies page. I too was fearful of building a forge until a friend helped me build my first one. All a gas forge is is a torch mounted in an insolated container.
  2. The question should not even need to be asked. Where are you located? If you don't want it I'll come and get it, no matter how far I have to travel. I'll even bring you the forge building materials that you will need for your first gas forge.
  3. There is no reason to put Metrikote or Plistix on the blanket if you are going to cast over the blanket with Kast-0-Lite or a similar product. 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. About $100.00 plus the hose, regulator and burner using a 20# Propane tank.
  4. I started with coal and have used coal at all of the classes that I have taken, as soon as I learned about gas forges that is what I switched to. It is easier to manage the fire. You have more consistent heat, you don't have "clinkers", the fuel is readily available, when you are ready to quit you just turn it off and walk away. There are many other reasons that i prefer gas. BTW, I forge weld in my Ribbon Burner forge without flux. Check out the Build a Gas Forge and the Ribbon Burner attachments on the Forge Supplies page at www.WayneCoeArtistBlacksmith.com.

  5. you are correct on all counts BillyO. Nicholai, you need to study the attachments about the Ribbon Burners on my site more closely.

About $100.00 plus the hose, regulator and burner using a 20# Propane tank. If you are planning to do forge welding I suggest that you go with the Ribbon Burner.

  8. You should build a much smaller forge, especially for a first forge. The biggest mistake most new builders make is to build a too large forge. That size forge will cost much more to build, use a lot of fuel, build excessive scale and grain growth.

About $100.00 plus the hose, regulator and burner using a 20# Propane tank.
  9. Don't overlook the Ribbon Burner attachments on the Forge Supplies page at www.WayneCoeArtistBlacksmith.com. Let me know if I can help you. Thanks Seth, I look forward to hearing from you.

  11. Generally speaking squirrel cage fans do not work well with Ribbon Burners. You need a blower that develops pressure. Because of the small holes in a Ribbon Burner there is resistance developed. With a Ribbon Burner you can control the atmosphere inside the forge. I adjust mine for a reducing flame when welding and a neutral flame and lower temp for general forging. The neutral flame also produces less carbon monoxide and it more economical to operate. I weld in my forge with about 1# of Propane pressure, 2315 degrees F with no flux.. I do not worry about light rust or mill scale. I do

  14. Don't use fire brick inside the forge. It is a heat sink. Better to cast the floor over a layer of Inswool. The air curtain is a good idea. I have one on my forge and it sure helps keep the heat down in the smithy. My instructions call for door hinges which aids the alignment.

About $100.00 plus the hose, regulator and burner using a 20# Propane tank. I suggest that you build your wooden form first and then fill it with dry sand, or flour, or rice, or some such product measured in pints to make sure that you order the correct needed castable.
