  1. It's a Venturi burner. I couldn't tell you what the regulator is set on.
  2. I'll see if I can come up with something to get rid of the fire brick. I guess I was thinking that the brick would make a smaller area that needed heating. I hadn't considered that the brick could absorb too much heat.
  3. I am. I think you're right about not getting hot enough. I'm thinking that my single burner foundry furnace turned forge may not get hot enough. I do have a few more burners. I've been considering building a proper forge.
  4. Didn't weld at all. Not even a little bit.
  5. I think I'll go for the second option.
  6. Ahhh. Noted. Guess I'll trash, call it experience and start again.
  7. So here it is after quenching and a bit of grinding. The welds didn't take all the way. Question... If I finish this just for seeing what it looks like, does it still need to be tempered? https://flic.kr/p/2kWGfw6
  8. That is slightly etched. But the line was visible while grinding. Just not as visible as it is now.
  9. Can't catch a fingernail in it. Haven't tried a needle. I'll probably keep on with it since I've came this far. If it grinds out then good. If not then it's experience under my belt.
  10. It's all ground from a flat bar that I forge welded. Although I can see the line, I can't feel it. To my fingers it's a perfectly smooth surface.
  11. 15n20 core with 1084 on the outside. Is it normal for the layer line to look like this or did the forge weld fail?
  12. Yeah I've thought about dust getting into the motor. And yeah...it's from a treadmill. It's what I had on hand. I plan on getting a fully enclosed AC motor at some point. I've also thought about the wheel bolts. I'm not yet sure how I'm going to address that.
  13. This motor isn't reversible. https://youtube.com/shorts/GW1lSIh5WrU?feature=share
  14. I concede to your experience. That being said, I've had no issues with this design.
