  1. Thanks everyone for all of the responses. This has been a wealth of information. I am going to go with the Ebay one and get some refractory cement and coat the inside with it. I would love to build the forge and burner and learn how it all works I just don't have a lot of free time. The time I do have I would rather make knives. I am working on knife number 3 right now and they are getting better each time. One day I will be able to make something worth carrying.
  2. https://m.ebay.com/itm/Propane-Forge-for-Knifemaking-Blacksmith-Gas-Forge-48-Hose-Regulator-U-S-Made/162740195318?hash=item25e4124ff6:g:jUoAAOSw7z1aAHft This one looks good too. This one already has the house and regulator and has good reviews.
  3. I came across the Texas forge and grinder single burner forge on Facebook. My wife wants to get it for me for Christmas. Is that a good route to go?
  4. Goede G-2 stainless steel forge/foundry burner and 0-30 PSI regulator with gauge. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FTGA720/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_2rYkAb5S8FFP6 What do you guys think about that? Seems like it would cost almost that much just to buy all the parts.
  5. Thanks everyone for the feedback. I will keep watching for the how too for the cheap and easy to make burner. I think that with be perfect. I enjoyed reading everyone's comments, thanks guys. The 45$ option doesn't look bad either.
  6. I started making knives recently and I am having trouble getting my blade to non-magnetic. I am using the Benzomatic WT2301 propane torch and soft fire bricks with a tunnel carved out in the center and a third brick blocking the back. If I get the flame to swirl just right I can get it hot enough but it takes a lot of tinkering with and doesn't heat the blade very evenly. There has to be a better way. What do you guys suggest? Not wanting to spend a lot of money.
