Matt Todd Posted February 5, 2015 Share Posted February 5, 2015 (edited) So, since acquiring quality high grade blacksmith coal is getting to be more and more a pain I decided to build a gas forge. The forge is built, and now I am working on the burners. The burner assemblies are made, except for the flare on the ends. My question is whether or not I really need to flare the end, or can I just leave it straight? The burners are 3/4" I.D. and I have the pipe that will slip over the end of the burner. But if I need to flare the end, I will need to heat the pipe and use a large drift to create the flare. I would rather just put the larger pipe over the end and be done with it. But if need be I will flare the end. Also, I'm super paranoid about blowing up and catching on fire. So, if you have any safety tips and issues to look out for so I don't blow up and burn to death that would be cool.
