    Question.I know this is different for every forge.But normally how long does it take for your metal come to heat?I was trying to upload a video I took but it keeps failing

    Thank you all for the replies.They make sense and I feel retarded for not thinking of them on my own lol.I will get some photos tonight on the dark!Simce I used a old propane tank that was almost empty I got a new tank.I seen a YouTube video saying that maybe the propane tank didn't have enough volume or pressure of its old.

    Thank you for the advice.If bright orange normally blade forging temp then I am good.I just thought I had to get it to a bright yellow so if its a bright orange then that's cool.That's just unexperience on my end

    Thank you for the reply.My appolgizes I thought I listed that information but I must have forgotten to. I had to run the forge at 20psi to get a bright orange. I was under the impression I needed to forge at a bright yellow..Granted I am very new it just seems the metal takes a while to move at bright orange.It might just be user error. Ah shoot ima have to go re measure and get the cubic feet ..Ill upload a photo.Not that this tell you the cubic feet but from end to end my forge is 9inches

    I think I bought the wrong burner

    Hello everyone..Long time member but just recently started forging.Over the summer I built a small 1 burner forge.Iined it with 2inch kao wool.Then coated it with kast o light..then painted on metorike(sure I'm spelling that wrong) I bought a burner off amazon its called geode g2 stainless..I thought it would be good and was a decent price.It came with a 30 psi regulator gauge and 4th hose. I am trying to get it tuned.I have a blue flame and it sounds strong like a jet.However I cant get the metal any hotter then a bright orange .I am not sure if my burner placement is in a bad location I tried to put it on a tangent.I have the burner flush with the kast o light. Any suggestioms and advice..either I am doing something wrong or I been had and got the wrong burner..Here are some photos.Thank you all in advance that reply.

    Thanks for the welcome lol..I been a member for years but never been in a position where I was able to start. The reason I said I had and read mixed reviews on the majestic had nothing to do with forged in fire..most reviews I read talked about how it was hard to get to welding temps..not that I plan on doing Damascus anytime soon . I like the chili forges but don't want to sling out the dough for one yet.

    Thank you for the post George,sorry took so long to geg back.I love in the sticks and we have a tropical storm headed our way so been busy prepping for it. Thats some good advice,I looked I to the local ABBA and I want to join it I just have to figure logistics,have my son only during the summers so time is precious lol,plus it's a pretty far drive..your anvil looks sexy! Bfs grinder?I made a friend through Facebook that i came close with,he owns a fab shop and makes grinder frames on the side..he said and showed me his work,beautiful stuff,a grinder frame that can flip vertical/horizontal ,all holes tapped,flat flatten,etc $350,so I think o will buy the frame from him and buy a 2hp motor and vfd,maybe a 8inch contact wheel also.
