  1. Of course a video on YouTube haha I wasn’t a massive fan of the burner plans to begin with but figured since they worked for him and the comments had other people who it worked for I’d give it a shot. I’m not understanding what you’re saying though.

    You're not getting nearly enough air.  That kind of burner needs a large, like 2" to 3/4", bell reducer on that end, and none on the other, with no obstructions on the large end.  When direct end injection was popular most designs used a 1/4" pipe across the big end of the reducer.   Where did you find the plans for this?  There are lots of better and cheaper venturi burner designs out there.  And here, for that matter.  


  2. I’ve been having some issues getting the flame right on my burner, my set up is essentially a 20 psi regulator to flare fittings into a ball valve which is then leading to a coupler held in by set screws, which has a cap drilled and tapped to hold a mig tip (0.025mm) I’ve turned everything all the way and the flame is still red and bellowing like crazy more than I’m comfortable with. Not sure what to do to get m blue flame to be able to control it within the forge. Any help would be much appreciated!
