    Forge Lining Question

    is the mizzou necessary if you rigidize the insulation. from what I gather you only need 1 or the other, is that correct?

    New quench tube

    I have a wire feed mig welder. I was thinking what you jerrod suggested and weld it the best i can then try and seal it up with some high heat jb weld

    New quench tube

    I found this piece of scrap steel pipe I want to use it as a quench tube. I will have to put an end cap on it but I am not a good enough welder to make a watertight weld. Are there any high heat resistant epoxy i can use to just glue the pipe onto some sheet metal?

    forge building questions

    ok cool thats what i figured. what about the burners? Is 2 enough? Instead of making them I was actually considering mounting some propane torch heads through tubes on the top and running them via hose to a 20lb tank. would that work or would not be high enough flow?

    forge building questions

    I am building a new forge from an old propane tank. I am planning on wrapping kaowool around the inside. Should a put refractory cement on top of the kaowool or just put rigidizer on it and let it be? And is 2 burners enough or would I benifet from putting in 3?

    Drill bits

    I finally got the holes drilled. After trying a number of different cobalt bits I found this and it went through it like butter.

    Drill bits

    I actually normalized the steel by heating it up then letting it cool back down to room temp. then realized I forgot to drill the holes so Im now trying to do that before I quench. is that the wrong way to normalize it? did I accidentally harden it?
