  1. It's a simple knee surgery so it shouldn't be bad. The bad one is his back. That's coming the beginning of the year. And my back surgery is going to be next year sometime. For now they wanna keep doing epidural steroid injections
  2. I will finish the burner on Thursday. I would do it tomorrow but I have to take my father in for surgery so it will have to be thursday. After it is all finished I will post a how to in the beginners place.
  3. So i built the body of the mini forge now i have to figure out how to post a picture from the phone. If i cant i will get to a computer later.
  4. My wife's phone dose the same. I don't have a phone or any other means of internet access hence the reason im on here kinda on and off. And i would post more pictures but i cant from the phone.
  5. Same here its nice in the sense you can make your own charcoal and you can have isolated heat and heat up just sections of a workpiece for upsetting and things like that but the convenience of being able to walk out and light the forge in the blink of an eye is awesome to have at your disposal.
  6. Even if i only help chris it will be worth it! I will post pictures here and im going to start a new topic under beginners place so it will be easier to find for other beginners or simply someone who wants a gas forge to compliment there coal forge.
  7. I think just for shits and giggles tomorrow im going to make a mini burner and mini forge just because i have all the materials needed and i can post a step by step how to.
  8. I didnt know about this kit i found a picture of something similar and copied it. It might have been this picture that i seen.
  9. I build my burners for around 20 bucks and now i have all kinds of brass and iron fittings that i won on an online auction so its just getting cheaper. As for a regulator the small burner i built used a normal house regulator pre set at 5psi. I have also won welding regulators on an online auction for anywhere between $3 and $15
  10. This is the exact same burner set up that i use works great and if you choose to you can add a blower on it, works like a charm!!!
  11. I have a buddy that built a motorcycle with a 327 chevy and his buddy built one with a 454 with a blower. Its not that uncommon were im at.
  12. You could build a small venturi burner. Or try to find a weed burner that would fit in the end of your forge. A weed burner will get a lot hotter than the torch you are using. I have built a small venturi burner for a friend that wanted to use a small freon bottle for a forge and it ran on a 5psi regulator fairly well. I think it used a 3/4 or 1 inch pipe. I know all of these things cost money but for what a weed burner would cost you could build a venturi burner.
  13. Its funny I was thinking about this the other day. If you do plan on grinding the canister off or a just in case the whiteout dose not work use a thin walled canister so there is less grinding.
  14. What motor and pulley size did you go with and which unit did you choose Vern?
  15. It's funny because i watched that video and a couple days later when i was bringing an anvil to a friend he gave me these barrels.
  16. 4340 has 1.65-2% Ni and 15n20 is 2% which makes me wonder how it welds?
  17. What would you guys do with the barrels? Try to do what Walter Sorrells did with the Enfield Mark III barrel?
  18. Everything looks good. I have made a burner that was 18 inches long and didnt affect the performance at all but its what you prefer i guess. My average burner tube has been around 12 inches.
  19. Time to kick the savings into overdrive!!!
  20. I probably shouldn't have used the term "old fashioned" These are new production barrel but its something i think when talking about henry rifles kinda like talking about '60s muscle cars. These barrels are discards from a shop that grinds the flats on the octagon barrels for the current production henry rifles. One of them has a large gouge from not being square on the surface grinder or something like that. But any little flaw and the barrel is scrapped.
  21. I also got a few Henry rifle barrels also. Not sure what they are made of yet but its good old fashioned american steel! I think 2 are.45 LC or 45/70 gov. And the other is .30 cal.
  22. This was given to me and is probably all that i will ever work with of this steel with that said i might play around with it after doing my homework on it. I was surprised there was not a topic on this alloy. When done correctly it can make a nice knife and sending it out for heat treat is not off the table but i like to do things myself. I don't get the sense of accomplishment when i send work out! And for me that is a huge factor in how i feel about the finished product. Not that it changes the value its just how i feel about the subject.
  23. http://www.steelexpress.co.uk/toolsteel/D2-Steel-properties.html According to this D2 can be quenched in oil bit would you want to do this with something as thin as a knife. Its labeled as air hardening but can be oil quenched. Any input would be appreciated.
