Definitely more tech then mine is. Gratz on the new forge and I can't wait to see the blades that come out of it.

Congrats on the Diamondback, I've got one of the triple burner forges from them. If you can, I recommend coating the inside with ITC100. It helps raise the efficency of it quite a bit. I also upgraded mine to twin t-Rex burners. With the coating and twin burners it got hotter, did it faster, and consumed less fuel. The triple burners gobbeled down propane like a beaver on crack.

 

FYI I just ordered a new chileforge for normal work. It's not on their website yet, it's a single burner version of the cayenne. I'll post some pics when I get it. Stacy from ChileForge said it can run for a full 8 hrs at welding heat off a #20lb tank.

Sorry about the poor pictures it hotter and brighter than it looks and deeper in color, bad camera, but here are pics of it. These are all taking in the first three minutes of lighting it, running at 3psi. The piece of metal isn't a dull red, but a bright orange, almost yellow, bad camera.
